Chelsea's U-21 team beat Arsenal 2-1 on Tuesday with a goal from Lewis Baker that some have compared to the famous backheel magic of club legend Gianfranco Zola. With Chelsea down 1-0 in the second half, Baker equalized with a spinning backheel finish that froze Arsenall keeper Matt Macey just long enough to get by him. Chelsea then scored a winner shortly before full time, but it was Baker's goal that was the standout.

The match was also notable as it marked Abou Diaby's return from yet another injury. Shockingly, he did not immediately re-injure himself.
