SUMMARY

Marta Corredera’s first-half double ensured Arsenal left Chelsea with a 2-0 victory in the FA WSL Continental Cup to go top of their group.

The visitors - who suffered a disappointing loss to Manchester City in the FA Women’s Super League - capitalised on two errors at the back for their goals before the interval.

FIRST HALF

Corredera took advantage of a slip-up by Chelsea goalkeeper Marie Hourihan and centre half Gilly Flaherty on 18 minutes, the Spaniard collecting the loose ball and rounding the keeper to slide home.

Her second 20 minutes later was almost a carbon-copy, Ana Borges this time finding herself in a mix-up with Hourihan, leaving Corredera space to slot the ball in.

Drew Spence went closest for the FA Women's Cup winners in the first half, firing over the bar in injury time, and Fran Kirby, on her first start for the Blues, also caused some problems for Arsenal.

SECOND HALF

Ji So-Yun and substitute Eniola Aluko combined well for the hosts after the interval, but lacked the final ball to draw their side level.

And Sari Van Veenendaal in the Arsenal goal looked confident and was quick off her line to smother any threats from Chelsea’s forwards.
