Chelsea’s Under-21s won their Premier League championship on Wednesday night beating Manchester United 2-1 at Old Trafford.
The Blues had to claim the gold the hard way after they fell behind to a wonderful goal from Man United starlet Tom Lawrence in the first half.
Lawrence, 20, made his senior United debut along James Wilson against Hull in the Premier League last week.
Against Chelsea, Lawrence added to his glowing reputation when, in the 12th minute, he ghosted into the box to collect a pass from James Wilson before curling a left shot into the corner of the Chelsea net.
Wearing the #11 shirt, Lawrence continued to search for a second goal as the evening progressed, and the United forward caused problems for the Blues backline as he looked to take on defenders and run in behind them.
