This has cheered me up immensely. Just a fantastic performance by the whole team, and yet another great reward for all the good Emma Hayes and her staff have done at the club. This was a tactical masterclass on her part, especially after the defeat early in the season. The tactical adjustments were remarkable: going form 343 to 442 out of possession with helped preventing the overloads on the wings Arsenal cause so many times, introducing Ingle again which allowed Leupolz to play her more natural game, and the purposefully direct attacks that led to many 2v2 in attack - Kerr and Kirby's pace doing the rest. Arsenal were clearly taken by surprise.

A big statement. Arsenal are out for blood this season, trying to catch up to Chelsea, this was a reminder of who's boss. 

Very lucky to have superstars like Sam Kerr & Pernille Harder at our club, and of course Fran Kirby. Should have been 2nd at the Ballon d'Or. 

Great atmosphere at Wembley and always love a Chelsea title celebration.

That was some finish by Sam Kerr for that 3rd goal.  

Doesn't matter what side it is representing us, it's always good to beat Arsenal.  Especially in a Cup Final.  Has there been an AFTV meltdown yet? 😄

 

Emma Hayes and her players really do a fantastic job.  Long may it continue

Don't normally watch the women's yet did this time.

Kirby was different class and Kerr's first reminded me of a Costa finish and her second was sublime.

At half time and just 1-0 ahead thought Arsenal would make us pay for all those missed chances yet not to be.

Generally thought we did not give Arsenal any time on the ball within our half and it paid off.

Sam Kerr an absolute legend, not only scoring world class goals, but doing the stewards' job for them as well! Smashing a pitch invader to the ground at Kingsmeadow against Juve !

DO we know why she got a card?

There was contact and it was deliberate.

A bit of a cheap shot actually as he was already leaving the field having got his selfie.
