FT: Chelsea 3:1 West Ham; Watch full match highlights as kerr shine like Eden Hazard
Chelsea fought back from an early setback to register an impressive 3-1 win over West Ham to kick-start their Women’s Super League campaign at Kingsmeadow on Wednesday night.
After suffering defeat at Liverpool on the opening weekend, Emma Hayes’ side have recorded back-to-back home wins to give a far brighter complexion to the start of the new season.
Dagny Brynjarsdottir headed the visitors into an early lead (3), but Fran Kirby levelled prior the break (40) before Sam Kerr (58) and Millie Bright (62) completed the turnaround.
Chelsea dominated the second half and should have scored more as substitute Lauren James won a penalty but could not beat goalkeeper Mackenzie Arnold from the spot.
There were positives for Chelsea as James, watched by brother and fellow England international Reece, was impressive again in a short appearance from the bench.
Kerr, meanwhile, had a frustrating evening, but she caused plenty of problems for the West Ham defence.
