Chelsea women defeats Manchester City women to win the FA community shield today.

The Blues struck two unreplied goals to claim their victory against the citizens.

Millie Bright fired in a 30-yard stunner on 66 minutes to put Chelsea ahead before Erin Cuthbert made sure of the victory in the first minute of stoppage-time.

City had Jill Scott sent off just four minutes before Bright’s opener and saw new signing Chloe Kelly hit the post and Janine Becker have a goal ruled out for offside in the first half.

But Chelsea took charge after the break and if it had not been for the woeful finishing of striker Sam Kerr, they would have been ahead long before Bright’s superb long-range strike.

The Blues now win the Shield after their Women super league triumph towards the end of last season.
