Islam Feruz scored twice to underline his growing reputation as Chelsea set themselves up to win their second FA Youth Cup in three seasons.

The 16-year-old, who was involved in a controversial move from Celtic last  summer, capped a superb performance by the west London club.

The Scottish youth international showed he has the knack of being in the right place at the right time as his two second-half strikes gave Chelsea a huge safety  margin for the second leg at Ewood Park on May 9.

They were two up in half an hour as captain Nathaniel Chalobah glanced in a header from Amin Affane’s cross, then midfielder Lewis Baker bent in a brilliant shot from 20 yards.

Midfielder Lucas Piazon was the architect of both goals in the second period, twice playing precision passes that opened up Blackburn’s defence to give Feruz easy chances.

The two sides had shared 43 goals between them in a total of 12 games leading up to the final, and Rovers’  youngsters started well.

But Chelsea keeper Jamal Blackman saved superbly after Hugo Fernandez chipped the ball over  Chelsea’s back line to put Osayamen Osawe through, and Curtis Haley had a header cleared off the line by Todd Kane.
