Chelsea Women 1 – 3 Manchester City Women

Manchester City ended Chelsea’s dominance of the Women’s League Cup and lifted the trophy for the first time in three years after an emotional second-half comeback led by Caroline Weir saw them claim a 3 win -1 against the Blues.

Chelsea entered the game looking for their third successive triumph in the competition, but ended up handing the trophy they had held since 2020 to City after a sweet second in 45 minutes was heavily punished by the team by Gareth Taylor.

The Blues’ poor second-half performance was particularly surprising given they had the upper hand in a frenetic first half, which saw Sam Kerr give them the lead after a mix-up between Ellie Roebuck and Demi Stokes.

But Man City were a different team after half-time and blew Emma Hayes’ side away with two Weir strikes, which came either side of a poacher finish from Ellen White.
