In the Premier League International Cup clash against Celtic, Mark Robinson anticipates a distinctive challenge for Chelsea Under-21s. Despite the recent 2-1 loss to Liverpool, the team aims for victory at Kingsmeadow tonight at 7pm UK time.

Watch the match live on the Official Chelsea App for enhanced stats. A win would bring the Blues closer to the top two and secure a quarter-finals spot. Robinson acknowledges the difficulty, given Celtic’s experience at the senior level, but remains focused on maximizing the team’s chances for a positive outcome before the Christmas break.

According to Robinson, facing Celtic poses a distinct challenge, given their B team football in a men’s league. A victory in this match is crucial for our progression in the competition. The aim is to head into Christmas strongly positioned across multiple competitions.

Reflecting on the recent game against Liverpool, the focus remains on building and sustaining our style and rhythm of play. Despite a promising start, maintaining a high level of performance for the entire 90 minutes is a priority. Robinson acknowledges the need to adapt to a recent formation change based on available players.

Looking back at the last match against Liverpool in the Under-21 Premier League, Robinson highlights the exceptional first-half play, expressing satisfaction with the rhythm, rotation, and sharpness. However, the challenge lies in extending that performance throughout the entire game to avoid setbacks like the late defeat against the Reds.

Despite missing three or four golden opportunities, Robinson believed converting them would have secured the game, considering the team’s dominance. Unfortunately, an early second-half lapse in build-up play led to an easy goal for the opponents.

However, the team rebounded, securing a well-executed equalizer through a transition play. Recognizing the chance to exploit the opposition’s vulnerabilities, the swift break resulted in a goal. Castledine’s quick break and a precise pass to Dylan, advancing from the full-back position, culminated in a superb finish.

Despite the hope for an upward trajectory, the match leveled off, appearing destined for a 1-1 draw. Unfortunately, a late setback occurred as we were punished for a ball giveaway during the back build-up.

However, Robinson remains positive, choosing to focus on the promising aspects from the initial stages. The first-half football showcased remarkable cohesion, presenting a solid foundation for future development. Identifying the lack of opposition answers in the first 30 minutes, he emphasizes the need to cultivate and extend such dominance. The team’s challenge now lies in sustaining relentless efforts and capitalizing on created opportunities.
