Chelsea made a convincing start to their Women’s Champions League campaign with a 5-0 win against SFK 2000 in the first leg of their round of 32 tie in Sarajevo.

Millie Bright, Drew Spence and Maria Torrisdottir gave the Women’s Super League champions a commanding half-time lead.

Ji So-Yun and Adelina Engman added further goals late in the game to complete a resounding victory for Emma Hayes’ side.

Chelsea, WSL title and FA Cup double winners last season, were in control from the first whistle and could have won by a bigger margin, with Fran Kirby seeing a 81st-minute penalty saved.
