Manchester City swarmed Chelsea to go second in the Women’s Super League after a commanding 2-0 victory over the west London side.
It seemed to be an even matchup in the opening minutes, but soon it was obvious that Manchester City were the better side.
Within 21 minutes they had scored their opening goal after Ann Katrin Berger sent the ball straight to Filippa Angeldahl who played a quick one-two with Lauren Hemp before firing a shot across Berger straight into the top corner.
After conceding, Chelsea looked more disjointed than ever, and City were happy to capitalise off their mistakes.
The visitors looked particularly vulnerable at the back, and it wasn’t long before City doubled their lead after Kelly was able to breeze past Chelsea’s defence, get a cross in to Laura Coombs who played it to Hemp who opted to smash it in first time.
Despite Emma Hayes making several changes throughout both halves, Chelsea never looked up for the match, and were overwhelmingly poor both with and without the ball.
The second half was a formality for Gareth Taylor’s side who continued to threaten until the final whistle and saw out the win.
The loss for Chelsea means that they lose their spot at the top of the table to Manchester United, and slip to third, though with a game in hand.
