Chelsea Win Record Third Straight League Title
Chelsea clinched the historic Women’s Premier League title for the third time in a row in impressive fashion on the final day of the season with a victory over Manchester United.
Sam Kerr scored two best goals in the second half as Chelsea came from behind with six exciting goals.
The Blues, who won the league by one point against second-placed Arsenal, knew victory would give them the title.
Manchester United led 2-1 until the break before Kerr scored twice and Guro Reiten scored Kingsmeadow.
Arsenal won 2-0 against West Ham but had to salute them for second place.
It is the first time in WSL history for a club to win the trophy in three consecutive seasons and Emma Hayes’ side can qualify for a double home victory with a victory over Manchester City in the World Cup final. The FA Cup next Sunday at Wembley.
Manchester United end the season in fourth place with a Champions League qualification next year – although Manchester City’s 4-0 win over Reading meant United’s victory would not be enough.
