It was another joyful day for Chelsea fans as Chelsea Women’s team retained the FA Women’s Super League title after beating Reading 5-0 comfortably on Sunday. Chelsea and Manchester City women’s team played different sides on the final weekend, but they were actually going against each other. Before the final game week, Chelsea was at 54 points and City at 52. Man City needed Chelsea to lose their last game to have a chance at the title.

Eventually, Chelsea put their one hand on the title just after 70 seconds when Leupolz netted a shot after a poor clearance from the Reading defender. Later, Chelsea’s star winger Fran Kirby (16 goals & 10 assists) scored a brace that sealed the title at 57 mins. Kirby then assisted with a lob pass for striker Kerr (21 goals in the season), who took her chance on a volley and got the maximum reward as a goal.
After securing the Super League title, Chelsea has now won the second trophy of the season. Earlier in the season, they won the League Cup and now look to progress with high spirit towards their unprecedented target to achieve quadruple.
The team will go up next against Barcelona in the Champions League Final on May 16 at Gamla Ullevi, Gothenburg. Then they’ll play Everton in the round of 16 of FA Cup on May 20, which Emma Hayes team has won twice before.
