Chelsea Ladies on the verge of title glory

Chelsea Ladies will clinch the Women’s Super League title if they win at Manchester City on Sunday – it would also be the first major trophy of the team’s 22-year history.

Emma Hayes’ side are top of the table going into the final round of fixtures and would have been crowned champions with last weekend’s win against Everton had other results gone their way.

They are two points above second-placed Birmingham City and three clear of reigning champions Liverpool.

Their title rivals are both at home, with Birmingham hosting Notts County and Liverpool facing Bristol Academy.

“If we win the league I’ll be in dreamland, but we’ve got a really tough game to end the season and I’m not thinking beyond those 90 minutes,” Hayes said.

Even if they are pipped to the title, second place would earn them a place in the Champions League for the first time.
