“She’s so good.”


Gareth Taylor on the win 🗣

“I am super proud of the girls. They really deserved that today.

“I just felt we mixed our game up. We seemed to be at their back four all of the time. I really felt we could have been five or six up at half-time.”


Chloe Kelly on getting her form back 🗣

“Gaz is giving me confidence. He’s letting me play free and I’m just enjoying myself out on the pitch.

“When I’m enjoying myself, I think that’s when I’m at my best. I’m having fun really, like I’m a little girl again playing football.

“I’m playing with such a great bunch of girls. It’s brilliant.”


Chloe Kelly on Lauren Hemp scoring 50 goals 🗣

“What a girl. What a player. She’s unbelievable for us.

“When you have that link-up with such a special player, it’s brilliant.

“She’s a great player. She’s a great person. And I’m incredibly pleased to share the pitch with her.”


Chloe Kelly post-match thoughts 🗣

"It was a brilliant performance and a brilliant day. 

"I think we really set the tone with our press today. When we win the ball back, we know the class that we have. We showed that today."

We're nearly there!
