Chelsea Women win fourth consecutive Women Super League title after 3-0 victory at Reading

Goals from Sam Kerr and Guro Reiten fired Chelsea Women to a fourth successive WSL title on the final day of the season, beating Reading Women 3-0 as the Royals were relegated.

The Blues were two points ahead of Manchester United heading into the last fixtures of the 2022/23 season, knowing a win would see them to another league trophy.

It was ultimately an easy victory for Chelsea, with Kerr firing them ahead inside 18 minutes after a superb pass from Reiten. The Norway international then took advantage of an error at the back to score herself just before the break.

The second half was a quieter affair but was rounded off in style in the 88th minute as a superb ball over the top found the run of Kerr, who scored on the rebound after her initial effort hit the post.

It is also a third domestic double in a row for Emma Hayes’ side, having secured the Women’s FA Cup trophy two weeks ago.

There was despair for their opponents, though, as Kelly Chambers’ Reading were relegated to the Women’s Championship after eight seasons in the WSL.
