It was a good weekend at every level for Chelsea Football Club, as all four teams recorded solid-to-excellent wins.

Chelsea U23, fresh off their excellent 5-0 win over League One Plymouth Argyle in midweek to advance to the Checkatrade Trophy knockout round, recorded a madcap 5-4 win over Arsenal — Hudson-Odoi and Ampadu both started, but it was Billy Gilmour who bagged the later winner. Chelsea U18s took care of Norwich City, 2-1, for their seventh straight win. And the senior men’s team beat Crystal Palace, 3-1 after a bit of consternation, to make it 16 in a row unbeaten.

But it was Chelsea Women’s Ramona Bachmann who produced the Chelsea goal of the weekend, with this effort against West Ham. Pick that out!

After a rough start to the season, including a 5-0 hammering at home by league leaders Arsenal (who maintain a 100 per cent record after seven matches), Chelsea Women are getting back on track. They have kept five clean sheets on the bounce, and beat Fiorentina 6-0 away on Wednesday to advance to the quarterfinals of the Women’s Champions League. Yesterday, they beat West Ham 2-0 to move to within five points of second place Manchester City. Scoring goals in the WSL has been a bit of an issue however, which has meant that Emma Hayes’s history-makers of last season have drawn 4 of their first 8 league matches.

So there’s plenty of work to do to salvage the Super League season. Goals like that certainly won’t hurt!

UPDATE: Bachmann's effort may only be second best. Check out this obscene piledriver from the U18's Jack Wakely.
