Lawrence to the rescue
Just as we looked to have earned a point from the evening, Lawrence was on hand to fire Chelsea back into the lead. The chance again came from Livramento’s cross which found its way to our opposite wing-back who took a touch to settle himself before powerfully striking home the winner.
The three points propels Myers’ men to second in the table, a point off leaders Manchester City.
We’re back at Kingsmeadow next weekend to take on Tottenham in PL2 action.
