Chelsea travel to Manchester United in the WSL finale with Manchester City facing Aston Villa as the title race goes to the wire. The champions will be crowned on Saturday with just goal difference splitting the sides in what has been a thrilling battle.

Emma Hayes is hoping to end her Blues dynasty with a title before taking over the US Women’s National Team and tackling the Olympics this summer in Paris.

After a testing couple of months, with defeat to rivals Arsenal in the League Cup final and a crushing loss to Barcelona in the Women’s Champions League semi-finals, Chelsea have shown their resilience and stand 90 minutes away from a famous title triumph. Follow all the action below plus get the latest from both Man Utd v Chelsea and Aston Villa v Man City:


15’ – Man United 0-2 Chelsea

The home team trying to get a foot on the ball and pass in areas where Chelsea cannot immediately turn them over – the tempo has been low from United and they haven’t managed to get any kind of numbers into the final third.

Understandable that they may struggle a little after the high of the FA Cup final perhaps, but still more required on the day.

11’ – Man United 0-2 Chelsea

Almost a third! Kaneryd gets in down the right again, behind the defence and cutting the ball unselfishly along the six-yard box – but this time Riviere just about gets back in time to make a last-ditch challenge and deny a simple tap-in.

Chelsea absolutely bossing United at the moment, the hosts need to really step it up physically as much as anything else.

GOAL! 8’ – Man United 0-2 Chelsea

Brilliant goal! Chelsea double their lead and it’s Ramirez with the assist this time, feeding Ryyting Kaneryd on the overlap and while the first touch is marginally heavy, she still beats Earps to the ball and dinks a glorious finish over the onrushing keeper’s dive and into the corner off the post. 2-0 to the visitors already!

4’ – Man United 0-1 Chelsea

Well, they simply couldn’t have had a better start, could they? First real attack, Ramirez absolutely bullied Turner there to fire that header in. Title very much in Chelsea’s hands as it stands…but a long, long way to go yet.

United trying to settle and pass the ball around to get themselves back into matters.

GOAL! 2’ – Man United 0-1 Chelsea

Wow, what a start!! A break down the left, an absolutely perfect cross from Reiten and Ramirez is racing in to rise hightest and bury a header past Earps from six yards out – amazing start for Chelsea!

1’ – Man United 0-0 Chelsea

Underway! Almost an error at the back between Riviere and Earps but they get away with it at the back.

WSL final day – LIVE

Man United will be hoping for additional investment in the women’s team now that Ineos have completed their buy-in at Old Trafford, perhaps. They’ve won the FA Cup this term but they are way off the pace in the WSL and will almost certainly finish behind Liverpool back in fifth this term.
