The quality of Emma Hayes’ squad was superb as Arsenal failed to prove any matches with double Fran Kirby and Sam Kerr pulling the Blues into the trebles.

The 2020/21 FA Cup had been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Kirby gave Chelsea a goal lead just three minutes into the game as Hayes’ side came out of the blocks.

Arsenal failed to clear the ball and Kirby was able to get through to goal and didn’t make any head-to-head mistakes with the goalkeeper.

Chelsea dominated the opening rally and Kirby and Sam Kerr had chances to double their lead, but were thwarted by goalkeeper Manuela Zinsberger.

Both teams saw penalty calls denied in the first half, but saw their appeals dismissed.

Arsenal developed further in the match as the half progressed, but the Blues were good for their lead at the break.

Kerr clinched a deserved second place in the 57th minute as his shot caught Zinsberger with a flat foot and the ball passed to his near post.

Kerr then ensured the result by scoring an outrageous chip on the Arsenal keeper to bring the score to 3-0.
