Manchester City 2, Chelsea 2: Blues remain atop FAWSL standings


The WSL title decider between Manchester City and Chelsea was everything fans hoped it would be. 

Despite being somewhat overshadowed by the European Super League drama, the two teams still managed to put on a show and play to a 2-2 draw.

The first half was highlighted by bright attacking and at times chaotic defending. 

Chelsea struck first off a header by Sam Kerr in the 25th minute.

Four minutes later, Manchester City responded with a goal from Chloe Kelly.

Pernille Harder broke the tie when she capitalized on her own penalty in the 33rd minute to give the Blues a 2-1 lead heading into the half. 

Not one to go quietly, Manchester City capitalized in the 75th minute off a Lauren Hemp goal to even the score at 2-2.

Heading into the final 10 the Blues keeper Ann-Katrin Berger made a monster save to deny Manchester City their third after a bullet header from Lauren Hemp.

A foul on Jess Carter in the 86th minute led to a free kick for Chelsea that they were unable to capitalize on. 

In the 94th minute, a Lucy Bronze header went just wide of the post to keep the score locked at doubles. It would remain tied as the horn sounded to end the game.

With the tie, Chelsea keeps their two point lead over City in the FAWSL standings with two games remaining.
