The Blues eventually lost 2-1 at Stamford Bridge but put in a performance to be proud of, and none more so than the 19 year old.
Unsworth said. “Morgan Schneiderlin was taken ill so I had no hesitation in playing Beni Baningime, he’s been terrific for the U23s and that was some debut tonight.
“He likes a tackle!
“He’s very humble and we’re all proud of him tonight. You have to have the confidence to play young players, and I know them.
Beni Baningime is boss. Pass it on.

“Nobody likes losing games, I’m a bad loser but I have to say I’m proud of the performance, they were terrific.
“We are disappointed to lose, we think we had chances to get something from the game.
“We knew James McCarthy could only play for 60 minutes so we were always going to change things then. We limited Chelsea and then opened it up.
“We were camped in the Chelsea half, there is loads to work on.”
