Chelsea starlet Izzy Brown made a name for himself on the club's preseason tour - and he's back in the spotlight again after a stunning individual strike against Leicester under-21s.

Earlier this week Chelsea's under-21 side earned a 1-1 draw against their East Midlands opponents, maintaining their unbeaten start to the new season.

Brown, who joined Chelsea from West Bromwich Albion, is one of the club's top young prospects and he showed why with an incredible piece of skill on 35 minutes.

With half time approaching, Brown picked up the ball just inside the Leicester half. Skipping past two defenders, he approached the 18-yard box before cutting right and unleashing a thunderbolt into the top right corner of the net. The Leicester keeper had no chance.

But Chelsea, who sit top of the under-21 table, were pegged back by bottom side Leicester when Gary Taylor-Fletcher popped up with the equaliser. The experienced pro is not part of Nigel Adkins' plans at the moment and is getting minutes in the reserve teams.

Over the summer Izzy Brown was name checked by Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho as one to watch from the Blues academy, along with Lewis Baker and striker Dominic Solanke.

Brown, 17, is a regular England under-17 international. He joined Chelsea from WBA in the summer of 2013 with the fee decided by a tribunal after the two clubs could not agree.

He has already made his Premier League debut, although that was for West Brom before he made the move to Stamford Bridge, where he is yet to crack Mourinho's first team.

He scored the first goals of his Chelsea career in the 5-0 preseason win over Wycombe Wanderers in July 2014.

Mourinho a fan

At the time, Mourinho said: "My conscience tells me that if, for example, Baker, Brown and Solanke are not national team players in a few years, I should blame myself.

"They are part of a process the club started without me. In this moment, we have players who will be Chelsea players. And when they become Chelsea players, they will become England players, almost for sure."
