Chelsea and Bristol City to meet in Final
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 5 Feb 2021
FA WSL news - Chelsea and Bristol City to meet in Final - 5 Feb 2021 - Women's Football NewsFA Women's Continental Tyres League Cup holders Chelsea will play Bristol City, who are appearing in their first final, following semi final victories over West Ham Utd and Leicester City respectively.
The semi finals were played as a double header on Wednesday with Chelsea first in action against West Ham at Kingsmeadow and they produced a strong display to run out 6-0 winners.
Emma Hayes' side were quickly out of the traps and took a third minute lead when Pernille Harder sprung the Hammers' offside trap and coolly lobbed home, then Sophie Ingle drilled home a low shot from 25 yards for the second. Harder then seized on a bad clearance to score her second and Beth England turned in a cross from Fran Kirby to leave Chelsea four goals ahead at half time.
West Ham started the second half well but could not reduce the arrears, going closest when Maz Pacheco's shot was saved by Ann-Katrin Berger, but Kirby was to extend Chelsea's lead shortly afterwards and Harder fired home from the edge of the area to complete her hat-trick and a fine night for the Blues.
The other semi final was a much closer affair and a late goal was to give Bristol City a 1-0 win over Leicester City to ensure the club reached its first major Final for eight years.
The Robins were seeking to continue their recent revival under interim manager Matt Beard whilst Championship leaders Leicester aimed to make history by becoming the first second flight side to reach the Final. The first half was goalless although Leicester goalkeeper Kirstie Levell did make a superb save, tipping a rasping Charlie Wellings shot onto the bar.
Leicester came into the game more as an attacking force after the break but the Robins produced the decisive moment with eighteen minutes remaining, a quickly taken corner saw Ebony Salmon's cross met with a firm header from Kiera Skeels past Levell for the opening goal.
Leicester tried to respond late on as they piled forward for an equaliser but the Bristol City defence stood firm to hold on for a result which gives their season a huge boost, coming on the back of their first league win of the season four days earlier.
