Manchester City 2-0 Chelsea

Manchester City gained a comfortable victory at home to a Chelsea side who never really got going at The Academy Stadium. Chloe Kelly was instrumental, particularly in the first half, which saw goals from Filippa Angeldahl and Lauren Hemp earn Gareth Taylor’s side the points which adds further fuel to the WSL title race. Emma Hayes’ side badly missed Millie Bright, and they now await news about a worrying looking injury to Erin Cuthbert.
