Chelsea win Women’s Super League after beating Manchester United 6-0 in Emma Hayes’ last match | UK News

Chelsea Women have secured their fourth Women’s Super League title in six years after a dominant 6-0 victory over Manchester United on Sunday. The win also marked the final match for manager Emma Hayes, who is set to depart the club after nine successful years in charge.

The Blues were in scintillating form from the start, with Pernille Harder opening the scoring in the 12th minute. Fran Kirby doubled the lead just two minutes later, before Harder added her second of the match in the 25th minute. The first half ended with Chelsea holding a commanding 3-0 lead.

The second half saw more of the same from Chelsea, as Kirby completed her brace in the 54th minute to make it 4-0. Beth England and Melanie Leupolz added two more goals in the 68th and 81st minutes, respectively, to seal a comprehensive 6-0 victory.

The result sees Chelsea finish the season with 57 points, six points clear of second-placed Manchester City. The Blues have been in fine form throughout the campaign, losing just two matches and scoring a league-high 73 goals in 22 games.

For Emma Hayes, the victory was a fitting end to her tenure at Chelsea. The 44-year-old has been instrumental in the club’s success, winning four league titles, two FA Cups, and one League Cup during her time in charge. Hayes will now take on a new challenge as the head coach of the England women’s national team.

Speaking after the match, Hayes expressed her pride in the team’s performance and thanked the players, staff, and fans for their support over the years. She also praised the club for their commitment to women’s football and expressed her confidence in the team’s ability to continue achieving success in the future.

The victory is a testament to Chelsea’s dominance in women’s football in recent years. With a talented squad and a successful manager at the helm, the Blues look set to continue their winning ways in the seasons to come. As they celebrate their latest league title, Chelsea Women have once again shown why they are one of the top teams in the Women’s Super League.
