Man City 0-3 Chelsea: Emma Hayes ‘team qualify for women’s FA Cup final at the incumbents’ expense
VS

Chelsea beat Manchester City on Sunday afternoon to advance to the Women’s FA Cup final at the expense of the incumbents.

Cuthbert controlled a corner with one touch, then kicked the ball past Karima Benameur Taieb in the 23rd minute, setting the tone for what was a relatively comfortable afternoon.

The goal sparked questions as to whether the goalkeeper could have done better, and it was again five minutes later when Melanie Leupolz beat Taieb with a low shot from the edge of the box.

Chelsea’s penalty calls failed when Jess Carter came under Lauren Hemp’s attention, and Taeib then made good saves to turn down Sam Kerr and, after the break, Cuthbert.

Caroline Weir and Vicky Losada sent off-target efforts to the other end before an 89th-minute header from Beth England, brought just before the hour mark, sealed Chelsea’s place in the delayed final of the 2020-21 competition at Wembley on December 5.

Jess Park then saw a superbly knocked down stoppage effort against the post by Ann-Katrin Berger as Gareth Taylor’s City, who took just four points in their first five games of their 2021-22 Super campaign. Women’s League, suffered another disappointing exit.
