Key moments from our WSL title-winning campaign

The Blues went into the final game of the season knowing a victory would seal the title and we got off to the perfect start at Kingsmeadow.

Jess Carter picked out Melanie Leupolz from a corner and the German international executed a first-time strike to perfection to give Chelsea a 1-0 lead with less than two minutes played.

As they’ve done so often this season, Sam Kerr and Fran Kirby combined once again to create another goal for Chelsea.

Kirby slipped the ball into Kerr and the Australian returned the pass into the path for Kirby to provide a first-time finish into the top corner and give the Blues a two-goal cushion.

The duo were involved once again as Chelsea made it three just before the hour mark as Kerr fed the ball to Kirby and the No.14 took one touch before directing a thunderous drive beyond Reading goalkeeper Grace Moloney.

Kerr then got herself on the scoresheet which her performance certainly merited and of course it was Kirby with the assist. A delightful chip from Kirby to find Kerr, and the No.20 volleyed home her 21st goal of the league and seal the WSL Golden Boot.

Substitute Erin Cuthbert netted with 15 minutes to go as Moloney palmed Kerr’s header into the path of the scot and she bundled the ball over the line to make it five and complete the scoring on a title-winning day for Chelsea.
