Chelsea edged out London rivals Arsenal 4-3 in extra time to reach the final of the NextGen series in Lake Como, Italy, on Friday afternoon.

Chuba Akpom gave the Gunners a first half lead but Chelsea were back on level terms soon after the break through Islam Feruz before Nathan Baker put the Blues ahead for the first time in the match. Jeremie Boga then made it 3-1 to put Chelsea on course for the final but two late goals from Andreas Christensen and Serge Gnabry made it 3-3 to force extra time.

Both sides looked tired in over-time and penalties were only minutes away when Baker made himself the hero by grabbing the winner for Chelsea in the 116th minute. Chelsea will now play Aston Villa in the final while the Gunners face Sporting Lisbon in the 3rd-place play-off. Watch all the goals from a thrilling match below:
