Chelsea v City: Match highlights

Manchester City suffered an afternoon of frustration as Gareth Taylor’s succumbed to a first FA Women’s Super League loss of the season away to Chelsea.

The reigning champions took a first half lead in controversial circumstances through Maren Mjelde’s penalty after Ellen White was adjudged to have handled the ball.

However, TV replays showing the ball had instead struck Demi Stokes below the elbow and our hopes of staging a fightback were then dealt a further blow when Sam Kerr doubled the Chelsea advantage 12 minutes into the second half.

Gareth Taylor’s side summoned up a response through Chloe Kelly’s 73rd minute penalty after Millie Bright had handled a Caroline Weir cross.

But Frank Kirby sealed the deal for the hosts by firing home 11 minutes from time.
