Sam Kerr celebrates after scoring for Chelsea in the game against Man United in the Women’s FA Cup final
There was an injury concern around the Australian striker after she was on the bench for the midweek win against Leicester but slotted home from Pernille Harder’s squared pass 68 as the Blues made they win their first silverware of the season. Kerr had scored previously in the 2020/21 and 2021/22 finals as well as both Women League games against Man United this season, proving once again to be Chelsea’s Ms Dependable when it comes to match-winning moments.
It was a disappointing end for Man United in their first major cup final, having dominated the first half. Leah did have the ball in the net inside 20 seconds, but it was correctly ruled out for offside in the build-up.
But Chelsea’s strength in depth shone through in the end – especially after the introduction of Harder – as both teams now turn their attentions back to the Women League as they also battle for the league title on one of the tightest-ever races.
