Having been told that set piece would be a chance of him to score, with Chelsea rather subject when it comes to defending them, Maguire replied, “Yes I’m going to score around back tonight. Watch [sic].”

Maguire even specified it would be from an in-swinging corner and he was right!

Laurence tweeted the screenshot!

Hopefully the first of many!
