Chelsea bag WSL title in Hayes’ last game

85

Chelsea clinched their fifth consecutive Women’s Super League title with a decisive 6-0 victory over Manchester United on the final day of the season.

Emma Hayes’ squad edged out Manchester City for the title on goal difference, as the 47-year-old manager concluded her tenure with a seventh WSL championship as Chelsea’s head coach.

Starting the day level on points but two ahead of City on goal difference, Chelsea triumphed at Old Trafford with a brace from Mayra Ramirez, and goals from Johanna Rytting Kaneryd, Sjoeke Nusken, Melanie Leupolz, and the departing Fran Kirby.

Despite Manchester City’s 2-1 win at Aston Villa, courtesy of goals from Mary Fowler and Lauren Hemp, they finished seven goals short of Chelsea on goal difference.

Hayes is set to take over as manager of the United States women’s team before this summer’s Olympic Games in Paris.

Throughout her career with Chelsea, she has amassed seven league titles, five FA Cups, two League Cups, and a Community Shield.
