Chelsea take a two-point lead into the last day of the Women’s Super League One season after thrashing Liverpool.

Two goals from South Korea forward Ji So-Yun and strikes from England duo Fran Kirby and Eniola Aluko saw the Blues move ahead of Manchester City.

Liverpool were thwarted by the woodwork twice with the score at 0-0 before the visitors took control with some clinical finishing.

Chelsea will be crowned champions if they beat Sunderland next Sunday.

The result saw Emma Hayes’ side secure Champions League football for winter 2016-17, while also ending Arsenal’s title hopes.

Chelsea began the night second in the table, after Manchester City’s

resounding 6-1 win

over Bristol Academy in the day’s early kick-off.

But in they not only reclaimed top spot but also gave themselves a better goal difference than City going into the final weekend.
