'I Saw The Space In The Corner Of My Eye' - Chelsea's Anjorin On Wonder Goal Vs Wolves
Anglo-Nigerian midfielder Faustino Anjorin scored a spectacular goal as Chelsea thrashed Wolverhampton Wanderers 7-0 to seal their progression to the quarterfinals of the FA Youth Cup.

Five minutes before halftime, the England U19 international waltzed his way past several Wolves players and clipped the ball delicately over the onrushing goalkeeper to give Chelsea a 3-0 lead.

The Blues' captain for the FA Youth Cup explained that he had to go for goal when he spotted gaps in the Wolves defence.

"I saw it open up – at first I tried to play in Armando [Broja] but the ball came back to me and I saw the space in the corner of my eye, so I turned past one player and went in-between another two and just reversed the ball to finish it off,'' said Anjorin to Chelsea's official website.

"We actually wanted double figures because that’s the Chelsea mentality, to push and never ease up.

"The message from Ed [Brand, Under-18s manager] at half-time was to keep fighting and keep on going. Even though it took us a few minutes in the second half, we did that."

Anjorin and his Chelsea teammates will face Millwall at Stamford Bridge in the next round of the competition.
