Man. City Women vs Chelsea women Highlights
The Man. City women vs Chelsea women Highlights includes the Filipa and Lauren’s performance after Chelsea’s victory over Lyon in the champions league quarter finals first leg. The Chelsea defense was looked fragile during the first half of the match. But after the end of the first half, their defense improved in the second match. But their attacking skills were too fragile as they failed to cut through the defense of Man. City.
It was Filippa Angeldahl’s arrowing strike which deservedly put City in front on 21 minutes. Lauren Hemp doubled city’s lead with a marvelous goal, forcing Chelsea manager Emma Hayes into changing the players before interval. Hayes had stern words with her players at the break but the hosts only a second league defeat of the season on their opponents.
The result moves city with WSL leaders Manchester united while Chelsea slip to third place, and they are ahead of their second leg match against Lyon against Thursday.
Emma Hayes postmatch interview
“We lost. I was proud of the second-half performance. It’s important now we get all our thoughts into Thursday. It’s a tough loss but well done Manchester City.
But I’m not going to say a negative word about my players. I love them. I know how hard they pushed in the second half. This was one game too many.
“It’s so hard to win a league when you’re in all competitions with a game every three days. Today’s performance reflected that.”
Chelsea tried to apply pressure after the break but were unable to create a real chance until stoppage time, when Melanie Leupolz volleyed over. Man City have not won the WSL since 2016 and had not beaten Chelsea in their previous 11 attempts.
For Chelsea, there will be plenty of soul-searching ahead of their second meeting with Lyon. They responded well to the Continental Cup defeat to Arsenal, winning their next four in all competitions, and they will have to show similar resolve again.
Gareth Taylor on postmatch interview
“In the second half I felt quite calm. We surrendered a little bit of possession but I didn’t feel much threat and that’s a nice position to be in said Gareth Taylor in an interview.
“Two-nil is always a dodgy scoreline I spoke to the girls at half time about that. If we score the third the game is done. It was nice to be able to come in at half time against Chelsea positive.
“We were really encouraged today by the way we pressed. Both goals came from us winning the ball high and making good decisions. We had a few more opportunities.
“Overall really pleased. It’s three points. It’s still Chelsea’s title to lose, but it’s a real positive step for us. It gives us good confidence going into the next period.
“To get to this position after losing the first two games of the season is pretty remarkable. The players need to take great credit for that. We’re a new team, with new players, but we’ve got high levels of confidence.”
Alex Greenwood was awarded with the play of the match, she is such an accomplished passer and has a natural ability to bring out, turning Chelsea to focus on defense rather than attack.
