Sunderland U21s 2 Chelsea U21s 2: Watmore breaks duck with double

Have your say

Sunderland Under-21s came from behind to maintain their impressive form at the top of the Barclays U21 Premier League with a 2-2 Stadium of Light draw against Chelsea today.

Summer signing Duncan Watmore finally grabbed his first Sunderland goal with a spectacular opener, but the Blues hit back to level through Islam Feruz, who made the most of a mistake by centre-back Modibo Diakite.

Alex Kiwomya put Chelsea in front, but former Altrincham striker Watmore made it all square for Kevin Ball’s side.
