Liverpool deal title blow to Chelsea

Chelsea’s hopes of retaining their Barclays Women’s Super League title received a huge blow when they were beaten 4-3 by Liverpool after an astonishing finish which produced four goals in the last ten minutes.

The defeat leaves Chelsea six points behind leaders Manchester City, with only one game in hand, and after being firmly in contention for a quadruple only a couple of months ago, there is now a strong possibility that they will end the season trophyless.

Looking determined to put their UEFA Women’s Champions League semi final defeat to Barcelona behind them, the Blues took the lead after nine minutes when Aggie Beever-Jones headed home from a Catarina Macario cross.

The Blues took their lead into the half time interval but by the midpoint of the second half, the game had been turned on its head as Sophie Roman Haug and Gemma Bonner both scored from corners to put Liverpool ahead.

Beever-Jones then scored her second with ten minutes remaining but the Reds’ response was swift, Leanne Kiernan firing them back in front moments later. An own goal by Liverpool goalkeeper Teagan Micah looked to have salvaged a point for the reigning Champions but former Chelsea skipper Bonner was to have the final say, steering a header home in injury time to seal a result for her side which takes them level on points with fourth placed Manchester United.

On Sunday, Manchester City play host to third placed Arsenal whilst Chelsea are at home to Bristol City.
