Chelsea Ladies top after thrashing Reading

Chelsea Ladies went top of the Women’s Super League after thrashing Reading 4-0 at Adams Park.

Karen Carney, Drew Spence, Ji-So Yun and Hannah Blundell scored as Emma Hayes’ side maintained their perfect start to the season.

They were on top from the start and Carney headed them into the lead just after the half-hour mark.

Eni Aluko and Carney both had chances double the lead before two goals in the space of five minutes midway through the second half put the game beyond Reading.

Spence scored from close range after being set up by Ramona Bachmann, before Ji fired home soon after coming on as a substitute.

Blundell added a late fourth after pouncing on a defensive mix-up.
