Sam Kerr leads Chelsea to Women’s FA Cup win against Manchester City1 min read
Chelsea Women have won the Women’s FA Cup for successive seasons after a 3-2 victory over Manchester City in the final.
Sam Kerr’s back post header put Chelsea in front in the 33rd minute, before Lauren Hemp scored a wonderful equaliser for City just before half-time.
Erin Cuthbert then scored a thunderous goal in the 63rd-minute with a 20-yard thunderbolt, which crashed in off the underside of the bar from distance but City once again equalised, with Hayley Raso making it 2-2 in the 89th minute.
Kerr put Chelsea ahead for the third time in the game in extra-time, with her 99th-minute deflected effort ultimately giving the West London side victory.
The final game at Wembley Stadium attracted 49,094 fans, making it a record attendance for the Women’s FA Cup final.
This is Chelsea’s third FA Cup triumph, having also won the competition in the 2014-15, 2017-18 and 2020-21 seasons.
The win over City also sealed a domestic double for Emma Hayes’ Chelsea, who won the Women’s Super League last weekend.
