Chelsea back in Women’s FA Cup final as Emma Hayes’ side punish Arsenal’s waste to book a date against Man City


Chelsea made Arsenal pay for their missed chances in the Women’s FA Cup semi-final as Emma Hayes’ side cruised to a 2-0 victory.

Excellent goals from Guro Reiten and Ji So-Yun booked the Blues’ place at the showpiece event at Wembley Stadium where they will face Manchester City.

With these two teams facing off in the Women’s Super League (WSL), the competition was shaping up to be very exciting at Meadow Park.

In the WSL, the two have played 18 games and are separated by just one point, with Hayes’ side currently on 44.

And in the cup contest, these two teams showed the quality that placed them first and second in the league.

However, the hosts, backed by their supporters at home Boreham Wood FC, had to pay for not taking the chances they had in the first half and second when the game was still scoreless.

Stina Blackstenius received the ball down the left channel before making her way into the penalty area.

She rounded goalkeeper Ann-Katrin Berger, but no Arsenal player made it to the end of the cut and Chelsea were able to clear.

Vivianne Miedema also closed in when her ranged effort was slightly too high.

More soon.
