WATCH: Fran Kirby opens the scoring for Chelsea against Everton

New, comment

Ever present

Chelsea could have gotten a really early lead via penalty kick, but that was denied by Everton goalkeeper Tinja-Riikka Korpela who defended Melanie Leupolz’s effort from the spot. But that is no issue for the Chelsea steamrollers as they got things going via Fran Kirby, who received a sweet, defence-slicing, first-hit pass from striker Sam Kerr to set her up with a great chance against the Merseyside outfit.
