FA Women’s Super League: Week 22 Review

It was the final day of the WSL campaign and all matches kicked off at the same time. Less than two hours later Chelsea were crowned League Champions for the second successive year, Brighton would achieve their best ever league position at the expense of Bristol City who were relegated. Spurs would win for the first time in eleven matches, while Villa would do something Everton couldn't all season - get a point off a top four side. West Ham didn't manage to get that elusive home win, but against Manchester City was that really much of a surprise? We're doing it slightly differently this week. Here's a minute-by-minute on how week 22 played out in the FA Women's Super League...

Chloe Kelly equalised just before the half hour, but the reigning champions were back in front four minutes later when Pernille Harder converted from the penalty spot. City were much the better side after the break and Lauren Hemp got them back on terms with 16 minutes to go. Chelsea keeper Ann-Katrin Berger then made two outstanding stops from Hemp and Georgia Stanway, before Lucy Bronze headed agonisingly wide in the dying seconds...

Chelsea Retain the Continental Cup

Chelsea successfully defended their Continental Cup title on Sunday, hitting Bristol City for six in a completely one-sided final at Vicarage Road. Sam Kerr led the way with a hat-trick, while player of the match Fran Kirby bagged a brace of goals, as well as setting up ALL of the others – with Guro Reiten the beneficiary of her final assist.
