Lauren James’ high pressing gets West Ham in trouble, and the visitors lose possession quite close to the box. From that it was only a matter of Fran Kirby laying it to Niamh Charles on an overlapping run, putting a good cross to find Sam Kerr in the area. All the Chelsea striker had to do was connect her header and direct it towards the goal and across the keeper — all of which she did very well.
