Manchester City Women are champions….

Manchester City won the Women’s Super League title for the first time, with a 2-0 victory over Chelsea Ladies confirming them as champions. Unbeaten City just needed to avoid defeat to guarantee top spot. Chelsea captain Katie Chapman, under pressure from Jill Scott, diverted Toni Duggan’s corner into her own net 12 minutes before half-time. Duggan added the second from the penalty spot after full-back Lucy Bronze was fouled by Gilly Flaherty. City’s victory – in front of a crowd of more than 4,000 – took them 10 points clear of second-placed Chelsea, who will secure Champions League qualification if they take two points from their final two WSL games.
