Chelsea's Lewis Baker scores behind goal, no-look crossbar challenge

Ruben Loftus-Cheek may have established himself as the most promising home-grown Chelsea prospect since John Terry's breakthrough 16 years ago, but he's not the only breathtakingly gifted youngster to come out of the club's vaunted academy in recent years.

A new video has emerged showing Lewis Baker, currently on loan along with fellow Chelsea starlets Dominic Solanke and Izzy Brown at Vitesse, showcasing some pretty impressive ball skills with both feet.

The former England under-20 captain does everything from ball juggling and volleys to pinpoint free kicks, but the standout moments consist of a spectacular curling effort from behind a five-a-side goal and an outrageous successful no-look crossbar challenge attempt.

Baker is yet to make a Premier League appearance for Chelsea but his talent his highly regarded at Stamford Bridge and, on this evidence, it's easy to see why.
