UPDATE: Chelsea would go on to WIN 4-1, with Reiten adding a fourth and Arsenal scoring a late consolation.


I had wondered if Emma Hayes would ever start her best five attackers (England, Kerr, Ji, Cuthbert and Reiten) all at the same time against quality opposition. She did, and this is what happened in their first 45 minutes.

First goal, ‘10 – BETHANY ENGLAND

Second, ‘13 – SAM KERR

Shoutout to Sam Kerr waiting until a match versus Arsenal to score her first Chelsea goal. Blood doesn’t get any bluer than that.

Then, one of my favorite things: When a team is struggling to cope with your attack, their DM hits a sublime strike from outside of the box just to further demoralize you. You NEED to see this Sophie Ingle goal. Hang it in The Louvre.

Third, ‘20 – Sophie Ingle

Absolutely stunning.
