WSL title race: Chelsea in driving seat ahead of final day

Chelsea can edge ahead of Manchester City in the WSL title race with their game in hand against Tottenham on Wednesday evening ahead of the final day on Saturday...

To secure the Women's Super League title, Man City will likely require a win at Aston Villa on the final day, Saturday May 18.

The three-point cushion to second-placed Chelsea is substantial, but not decisive. City's superior goal difference was also blown after Chelsea routed Bristol City 8-0.

The Blues, however, still have two games to negotiate, the first of which will be at Tottenham on May 15 - a must-win.

If that doesn't happen, City can as good as clinch the title without kicking another ball. Chelsea then face a final-day meeting with Manchester United, where the title could be decided on goal difference.

Highlights of the Women's Super League match between Chelsea and Bristol City

A disconsolate Emma Hayes had already conceded the title to City. It looked to be all over. Boy has that changed.

A mood of deflation was rife in the Blues camp after that dramatic loss to Liverpool - it was positively jubilant after thrashing Bristol City.

Chelsea are back, and the four-times reigning champs will take some stopping now.
