Lauren Hemp scores Man City's second

Manchester City leapfrogged defending champions Chelsea to go second in the Women’s Super League with an impressive victory over the Blues on Sunday.

Filippa Angeldahl’s brilliantly lofted 20th-minute strike put City ahead, before Lauren Hemp doubled the lead.

City’s first league win over Chelsea since 2017 means they only trail leaders Manchester United on goal difference at the top of the table.

Chelsea are a point back in third but have a game in hand.

This was their first WSL defeat since the opening game of the season, while City remain unbeaten in the league since a defeat by Chelsea last September.

The meeting of the title contenders, which marked Women’s Football Weekend, was watched by 5,222 fans at Academy Stadium, just shy of City’s record crowd at their home stadium.
