Hayes will treat WSL clash against Reading as a ‘cup final’

Emma Hayes has insisted that Sunday’s WSL clash against Reading is a must-win game for Chelsea after her side beat Spurs 2-0 on Wednesday.

The Blues are in pole position to secure back-to-back Super League titles after Australia international Sam Kerr netted a brace against Spurs, taking her tally for the season to 20.

Looking ahead to the weekend, Hayes said: “It’ll be a cup final for us and I’ll approach it as such. We have to win the game.


FEATURE:


“As coaches we want everything. Some people have played a lot of football in recent weeks and this is another real credit to the whole squad for getting the win.

“The Bayern game took a lot out of us emotionally, so I was wondering what our performance would be like today.”

Spurs boss Rehanne Skinner reflected on ’s impressive Champions League run and the potential quadruple they could win.

She said: “We’ve played them twice so I’m well aware of the challenges that you face when they’re in this kind of form.

“All credit to them, they’re still in the running for this quadruple and that will be a massive step for them and a real positive for women’s football.

“We’ve got to keep working on strengthening our side and continue on the journey that we’re on here at Spurs, to evolve our squad and be in a better position to compete next year.”

Chelsea 2-0 Real Madrid (3-1 agg): Tuchel’s men march on to Istanbul

Timo Werner and Mason Mount netted to book Chelsea their place in the Champions League final in Istanbul.

Both sides made a tentative start to the second leg but Chelsea had a goal chalked off in the 18th minute. Ben Chilwell put it on a plate for Timo Werner who found the net, but he had just strayed offside.

Karim Benzema forced Edouard Mendy into a fine save just before the hosts took the lead in the 28th minute.


OPINION:


Kai Havertz dinked the ball over Thibaut Courtois but his effort bounced back off the crossbar. Werner was on hand to head it into an empty net from close range.

Havertz hit the bar again shortly after the restart. His header looked to be top corner bound but it struck the woodwork. Chance after chance went begging for Chelsea in the second half until they eventually got their second in the 84th minute.

Mason Mount smashed the ball home from inside the penalty area after being set up by Christian Pulisic. Thomas Tuchel’s side advance and they will face Manchester City in the Champions League final.
