Chelsea 3-2 Man City: Emma Hayes’ team defend FA Cup in five-goal thriller

Chelsea Women have completed the domestic double by winning the FA Cup 3-2 against Manchester City after extra time. The game was decided by a goal from Sam Kerr, and the Blues have now successfully defended their FA Cup title. 

Only one day after the men’s team failed to win for the third consecutive time in the finals of the competition, the women’s team went on and defended their championship. Chelsea boss Emma Hayes has now won 13 trophies during her time in charge of the club. 

Chelsea win women’s FA Cup after extra time 

A record crowd of 49,094 watched one of the finals for the ages played out. After 120 minutes of pure entertainment, the Women’s Super League champions were able to get the edge over Manchester City in a very competitive game from start to finish. 

Sam Kerr opened the scoring shortly after the half hour mark, but her opener was cancelled out by Lauren Hemp’s curling shot into the top corner. Erin Cuthbert restored Chelsea’s lead in the 63rd minute with an unstoppable effort, but Manchester City were able to get level once again with a goal from Hayley Raso to send the game into extra time.

Both the trophies won under the Todd Boehly era at Chelsea have been by the women’s team, which shows their clear dominance in the division right now. Chelsea will now be aiming for a stronger performance in the Women’s Champions League next season, after making it to the finals last year.
