      Liverpool beat Chelsea in seven-goal thriller to thwart Chelsea title hopes

      2024/05/01 21:42

      Chelsea's hopes for the Women's Super League title suffered a huge blow with a 4-3 defeat against Liverpool at Prenton Park.

      Agnes Beever-Jones initially gave Chelsea the lead in the ninth minute with a header from a Catarina Macario cross. 

      Liverpool's patience paid off in the second half, with Gemma Bonner and Sophie Roman Haug scoring from corners to turn the game aroung.

      With 10 minutes to play, Beever-Jones scored her second to level the game, but shortly after Leanne Kiernan put the Reds back in front again.

      Despite an 83rd-minute own-goal by Liverpool's goalkeeper Teagan Micah, which seemed to salvage a draw for the Blues, Bonner's stoppage-time header sealed Liverpool's victory in a thrilling seven-goal thriller.

      With this result, Emma Hayes' side sit six points behind leaders Manchester City, with a game in hand. They must rely on their rivals to stumble in their final two matches in order to win their fifth WSL title in a row.

      As a Chelsea fan, it's gutting to see our hopes for the WSL title take such a big hit with this loss against Liverpool. We started off strong with Beever-Jones' header, but Liverpool's persistence paid off in the second half. It was a rollercoaster of emotions with our team equalizing twice, but ultimately, Liverpool came out on top. Now, we have to rely on other teams to slip up if we want a chance at the title. Disappoint

      As a Chelsea fan, this loss against Liverpool is a huge disappointment. We had the lead but couldn't hold on, and now our chances for the WSL title are slim. Tough game, but we can't give up hope just yet.

      As a Chelsea fan, I'm absolutely gutted by this result. We had such a strong start and I thought we were on our way to securing the WSL title. But Liverpool's resilience and determination proved too much for us in the end. Still, I have faith in our team and we'll keep fighting until the very end. It's definitely not over yet, but it's going to be a tough battle for us.

We still have a chance, but it's definitely going to be a tough battle. Fingers crossed our rivals slip up in their remaining
