Chelsea have gone top of the Women Super League after a convincing 3-0 win over Tottenham on Sunday.
The game against Tottenham Hotspur was played at Stamford Bridge, only Chelsea’s women’s second WSL game here.
Sam Kerr, who enjoys scoring against Tottenham Hotspur, gave Chelsea the lead in the 12th minute. Kerr latched on to Millie Bright’s long pass before shrugging off the challenge of Spurs defender Molly Bartrip and firing into the bottom right corner from a tight angle.
Chelsea midfielder Erin Cuthbert scored Chelsea’s second in the 26th minute. A deep corner came all the way through to the Scot who unleased a fierce, dipping volley from the edge of the box which Spurs goalkeeper Tinja-Riikka Korpela was unable to keep out.
About ten minutes before half-time, Guro Reiten scored Chelsea’s third from the penalty spot.
Lauren James’ marauding run down the right, similar to the ones her brother and Chelsea men’s player Reece makes regularly on Stamford Bridge, drew a clumsy foul from Tottenham’s Ashleigh Neville in the box. Guro Reiten stepped up and sent Korpela the wrong way from the spot.
Chelsea threatened regularly after the break and should have scored more in the second-half.
