Emma Hayes has guided Chelsea to the Women’s Super League title with a brilliant comeback against Manchester United.
The Blues have won their third successive league title.
Martha Thomas opened the scoring for Marc Skinner’s side before Erin Cuthbert levelled proceedings at Kingsmeadow.
Ella Toone put United ahead just moments later as the title seemingly slipped into Arsenal’s hands, who relied on the west Londoners crumbling under pressure.
After two changes at the halfway mark, with Bethany England replacing Sophie Ingle and Ji So-Yun replacing Jonna Andersson, Chelsea roared back into action.
Sam Kerr fired Hayes‘ side level before the flood gates opened in Kingston-Upon-Thames; Guro Reiten scored the home side’s third of the afternoon before the player of the year doubled her account.
Hayes has now won 14 trophies at Chelsea and still has an FA Cup final yet to play.
The Blues finished the WSL campaign on 56 points from 22 games, winning 18, drawing two and losing two.
London rivals Arsenal, who needed to better the Blues result this afternoon but failed, won a silver medal and finished the season on 55 points, despite having won on the final day too with a 2-0 win over West Ham.
“Speaking to BBC Two, Gunners boss Jonas Eidevall described the heartbreak of surrendering the WSL title on the final day to Chelsea. He said:”It feels very empty right now.
I am very proud of the players and how they handled the situation.
“When you take 55 points, you know you can win it. We just feel empty that we didn’t do it. Obviously, you can feel the atmosphere here at the stadium. You feel the tension during the game. You love it, and it’s great to see how the players reacted under pressure. I loved that.”
