Not up to two weeks after being named “The Best Club in The World” Chelsea football club has added another trophy to their collection, through their women football team.

The Chelsea women tore it apart at Wembley when they met Arsenal women in the FA cup final, coming out on top with a 3:0 win, with Fran Kirby and Sam Kerr scoring the goals.

Chelsea women football team who lost their opening fixture this season against Arsenal team, couldn’t afford losing against them in FA cup and thereby putting their shooting boots on during yesterday’s final.

The Chelsea women were ‘simply purring’ after Sam Kerr scored their third goal of the afternoon to wrap up a convincing victory at Wembley.

Chelsea women coach Emma Hayes’ reference to cats, complete with purring noises, was actually a reference made for the Arsenal coach ahead of their encounter on Sunday.

Ahead of match, the Gunners boss had revealed his one superstition is to not let black cats cross his path before, saying: “If Emma sees this she will probably buy a thousand black cats with the money Chelsea have and send them all over our training pitch.”

Unfortunately, the black cats were the least of Eidevall’s problems. Kerr and Fran Kirby tore Arsenal’s defence apart and the Gunners failed to force Chelsea keeper Ann-Katrin Berger into a save.

During the post match interview, the Chelsea women head coach, Hayes was asked: “Are we dominant – the most dominant team in England right now?” “Yes of course, a quadruple suggests that. I thought we were like a machine, everything about us – we just purred from start to finish,we couldn’t give them a breathing space to explore our weaknesses.

“I felt so happy we got it right, We got it spot on. We predicted what they were going to do and they did what we thought they were going to do.

“Am very happy today because we painted Wembley blue,our performance today was superb, am sincerely happy to be a Chelsea coach”.

The team two prolific forward Sam Kerr the Australian and Fran Kirby the English player,won it for them, with a brilliant performance, and the coach Hayes lavished praises on them.

“For me as the manager this match was Fran’s best game in a Chelsea shirt, I thought she ran the show, she got on the ball in dangerous situations, she thread Sam in on numerous occasions, but also herself was a real threat, a real handful throughout the game. She’s a national treasure, so look after her.

“When we bought Sam Kerr many wondered how she’s going to handle the intensity of English football,but look now she has been good and consistent since years, well for me and many other football fans, She’s the best female striker in the World.”
