LAMPARD SWUNG IN a beautiful, curving corner into the box. Drogba’s marker was no match to him as the Ivorian climbed high to guide the ball into the back of the net. Some crazy defending from the Bolton player on the far post helped the cause.
That pretty much describes Chelsea’s second goal against Bolton. Precise and on point. But it leaves out very interesting details that happened in the build-up – how corner was won and how the move started. Essien played a huge role in the build-up that led to the corner and here we will look at how it went down.
