Emma Hayes concedes WSL title after latest Chelsea loss


Emma Hayes admits the Women’s Super League title race is over after Chelsea’s loss to Liverpool leaves them six points behind leaders Manchester City.

The Blues had the chance to draw level in the standings with Gareth Taylor’s side but they had to win their two games in hand.

After their disappointing exit from the Champions League on Saturday, it was more misery for Hayes on her farewell tour as Liverpool scored a stoppage-time winner to win 4-3.

The Chelsea boss is set to leave her role in West London this summer and take up the head coach vacancy with the United States Women’s National Team.

She will have been hoping for a more successful end to her glittering tenure at the club and admits it will be a huge task to overcome the current leaders in the remaining three games.

Hayes said: “I think the title is done.

“Of course, mathematically it’s not, but I think the title is done.

“Our job between now and the end of the season is to keep pushing until the end, but I think it will be very difficult.’

“This team has done a tremendous job in my time here to really compete and push for titles.

“We looked exhausted but I don’t make excuses.

“I want to remind our fans how much success we have brought over the years.

“It’s not to be this year but I’m sure Chelsea will continue to be at the top of the game and it’s important that we go out in the best possible way.”
