Second-half rally sends Aarons' Norwich past Chelsea

8 May 2020
ePL Invitational: Max Aarons 3-1 Emerson

Canaries' right-back scores three goals after the break to beat Emerson 3-1 to reach ePL Finals Day

Norwich City's Max Aarons completed the line-up for the ePremier League Invitational Finals Day as he beat Chelsea defender Emerson 3-1 to reach the last four.

After a goalless first half Aarons scored three times through Teemu PukkiKenny McClean and Emiliano Buendia.

A late mistake by Tim Krul allowed Olivier Giroud to tap in a Chelsea goal but it was only a consolation.

In the semi-finals the Norwich right-back will face Sheffield United's John Egan, who beat Brighton & Hove Albion striker Aaron Connolly 4-2 in the penultimate quarter-final.

Aarons said he was delighted to qualify for Finals Day and said he plans to call team-mate Todd Cantwell, who was knocked out at the last-16 stage of the inaugural competition.

“I’ll probably give him stick now because obviously I have got further than him!" Aarons joked.
