Chelsea picked up their second Women’s FA Cup title after the west Londoners deservedly beat Arsenal 3-1 at Wembley.

Playing in front of a record crowd of 45,423, the game came to life in the second-half, with Ramona Bachmann bagging a fine brace.

The first of Bachmann’s two goals came on 48 minutes, via a thumping effort.

On the hour-mark, the Swiss attacker scored again, this time courtesy of a deflected effort.

Dutch forward Vivianne Miedema got the Gunners back into the game, after impressive play from Beth Mead.

However, the north Londoners’ hopes of staging a cup final comeback were extinguished when PFA Player of the Year Fran Kirby superbly curled home from just inside the box.

Emma Hayes’ side would ultimately win the game 3-1, and with the WSL 1 title still very much a possibility for the west Londoners, it could be quite a finale to their season.
