Sport: For Chelsea, there are six points up on Manchester City with a goal difference that is eight goals weaker than the competitor’s. Two games remain for City, while Chelsea still have one to go.

Chelsea have won the series four years in a row. Now it looks like Manchester City will win for the first time since 2016.

Guro Reiten came on after 66 minutes and made a good figure. Maren Mjelde sat the entire game on the bench for Chelsea.

Liverpool’s Sophie Román Haug equalized at 1-1 five minutes into the second half. Liverpool then took the lead through centre-back Gemma Bonner before the game completely took off in the 80th minute:

Reiten hit a lovely breakthrough pass to Marie Höbinger who then found Aggie Beever-Jones in the field, and then the game was tied at 2-2. Liverpool hit back in the next minute through Leanne Kiernan. An own goal ensured even more drama on the eve. Bonner headed in his second goal, and the 4-3 victory was a fact.

Manchester City again has Arsenal in 3rd place and Aston Villa (7). Chelsea face Bristol City, Tottenham and Manchester United.

The season ends on 18 May.
