Chelsea have retained their WSL title following a thrilling final day victory over Manchester United which has confirmed their standing as the most dominant outfit in England.
The Blues have now claimed the Women’s Super League crown in three successive campaigns, and four of the last five seasons.
Emma Hayes’ side appeared to be making hard work of things as 2021-22 came to a close, with Arsenal waiting to pounce on any untimely stumbles, but they got the job done in a 4-2 victory over United.
The Blues knew that victory over the Red Devils would be enough to see them over the line in first place, regardless of how Arsenal got on away at West Ham.
The Gunners did their best to make things interesting, with a 2-0 victory carrying them close, but Chelsea were never going to give up their crown without a fight.
They were made to work for the right to claim another major trophy, with Martha Thomas firing United in front after 13 minutes at Kingsmeadow.
Erin Cuthbert restored parity five minutes later, but the Red Devils restored their lead in the 25th minute through Ella Toone.
Chelsea needed a hero to step forward, with Sam Kerr once again prepared to answer those SOS calls.
The Australian forward netted a spectacular brace – with her second effort looped over the United goalkeeper from 25 yards out – to give the Blues much-needed breathing space.
