Chelsea's senior team may not be in Champions League action until tomorrow, but on Tuesday afternoon the club's youngsters were providing a masterclass in beating a team from the continent after a thumping 4-1 victory against AC Milan at Cobham saw them progress into the quarter-finals of the UEFA Youth League.

A double from 18-year-old Lewis Baker helped the Blues to advance in the competition and the second of those goals was truly one to treasure.

With Chelsea already leading 3-0 thanks to his first-half penalty and an effort from Jeremie Boga, the England U19 international made sure of the victory after the break with a truly stunning strike.

After a Chelsea attack was hastily cleared by a panicky Milan defence, Baker picked up the ball from all of 35-yards and hit an absolute peach with his second touch that looped high up over the despairing dive of the visiting goalkeeper.

Now, while Chelsea do not exactly boast the greatest record of bringing youth players through to the first-team setup in recent years, Baker's claims will be impossible to ignore if he keeps up this sort of blistering form.

Check out footage of Baker's incredible strike above - with thanks to the Daily Mail for bringing it to our attention.
