As Chelsea nears its third straight Women’s Super League (WSL) title, manager Emma Hayes is having missed feelings after Sunday’s 2-0 win over Arsenal.

More Details

Chelsea Women captain Magdalena Eriksson announced earlier this week that she will be leaving Kingsmeadow at the end of this season, along with Pernille Harder, calling time on a long and illustrious Blues career.

It was Eriksson’s close-range finish that completed the scoring in Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Arsenal, which maintained the team’s two-point lead at the top of the Women’s Super League table, guaranteeing that another win in the last game against Reading next week will crown the Blues champions.

However, the obvious joy at such an important win was tempered at the end by the passionate farewells for Eriksson and Harder, as the Kingsmeadow crowd gave them a fine send-off after the final whistle.

“I’m really happy that we won but I’m really sad that we’re losing two amazing people. That’s how I felt at the end of the game,” explained Emma Hayes on Chelsea FC website.

“They’ve had amazing years here, an amazing time here, they’re not going to be here and we’ve had a chance to replace them with something different – not the same as them because you can’t do that.

“If there’s going to be a separation they’d want nothing more than for Chelsea to continue to thrive. I respect them both so much as people that I would never say a negative word about it. I’m proud of them and I wish them well.”


With one match weekend left, Chelsea still sits in the top spot on the WSL table.

Both Chelsea and Manchester United won last weekend, leaving both teams in the running for the top spot at 55 and 53 points, respectively.

Any non-losing result (without losing a +5 goal differential) against likely relegated Reading would win Chelsea the title.

Manchester United have secured a Champions League spot for the first time in club history, and their league hopes sit on a win over Liverpool.

Arsenal already have all but solidified third in the standings and the WSL’s final UEFA Women’s Champions League (UWCL) spot ahead of their season finale against Aston Villa.
