Chelsea FCW 7-0 Everton WFC, Women’s Super League: Post-match reaction
Although Chelsea Women were the home team versus Everton in today’s Women’s Super League match, the Toffees looked very comfortable in the first few minutes. As our midfield appeared to struggle against the visitors, Zecira Musovic was kept on high alert.

That didn’t last long, as Chelsea began to win duels and maintain possession for more than a few passes. Johanna Rytting Kaneryd assisted Guro Reiten for her sixth goal of the season during one of her greatest moments while retaining the ball.
The goal jolted Everton, who responded with improved midfield control and pushed higher up the pitch in search of an equalizer. Instead, they earned Chelsea’s second goal, with Niamh Charles’ cross colliding with Sam Kerr’s head in the box.
Everton just couldn’t find a solution from then on in the first half. While the sight of Sam Kerr being hauled off the field 30 minutes into the game was frightening, the fact that her replacement, Pernille Harder, scored less than a minute later was not.
Then it was Sophie Ingle’s turn, with the midfielder converting the opportunity with a superb long-distance strike to put us up 4-1.
Jessie Fleming scored the game’s last goal, capping off a wonderful team play that also summed up how powerful and in sync Chelsea looked while attacking.
Everton tried their best in the second half to get one back against us. But their intentions were stymied by a Chelsea club that was as strong as the ultimate champion. We even managed to add another goal to the scoreboard, thanks to an incredible Erin Cuthbert run on the right that set up Harder for her second goal of the day.
