A Sam Kerr cap stunt helped the Blues set another Barclays Women’s Super League record for the most sequential home successes on an evening when fans got back to Kingsmeadow.

This was the first run through since February that fans were permitted into our KT1 home, which went through a ‘Chelsea’ makeover over the late spring after past occupants AFC Wimbledon moved out, and those in participation were blessed to receive a wildly challenged London derby that absolutely wasn’t lacking in amusement.

After an in any event, opening to the challenge, the Blues went in front through Kerr’s sliding completion, after the returning Fran Kirby had expertly chosen her inside a packed punishment box.

Regardless of overwhelming the remainder of the principal half, we couldn’t locate a subsequent objective and West Ham made us pay for that only two minutes in the subsequent half, as Rachel Daly tapped in at the back post to draw them level.

It end up being a fleeting relief for the Hammers, however, as Kerr’s second of the evening reestablished our lead. This time Pernille Harder was the maker, terminating in a low cross that the guardian could just palm into the way of the Australian.

Her third of the evening showed up 15 minutes after the fact, and indeed it was the least difficult of assignments to divert the ball home from short proximity, following another splendid pass from Kirby that was just asking to be scored.

Albeit West Ham are in ninth, with just four focuses to their name and an interval director in charge, they struggled gamely all through and a late own objective implied it was a cheeky last couple of moments for the Blues. We waited for an astounding three focuses for Emma Hayes and her side as we hope to update Manchester United at the highest point of the standings.

It likewise implied another bit of history was composed, as we set another WSL record of 12 continuous home triumphs. The last time we neglected to succeed at Kingsmeadow in the association was back in March 2019, when West Ham held us to a 1-1 draw.
