his triumph marks a remarkable milestone for Chelsea, as it represents their 13th major trophy under the guidance of manager Emma Hayes. On the other hand, Manchester United’s dreams of securing their first major silverware were dashed.

The magnitude of the occasion was evident in the stands, with a staggering attendance of 77,390 spectators at Wembley. This unprecedented turnout set a new world record for attendance in a women’s domestic game, signifying the growing popularity and recognition of women’s football.

The final began in dramatic fashion, with Manchester United seemingly finding the back of the net within the first 20 seconds. However, their joy was short-lived as Ella Toone was deemed offside during the buildup, resulting in the disallowed goal. Despite this setback, Manchester United dominated the first half, effectively neutralizing Sam Kerr’s influence and creating promising opportunities through Millie Turner and Leah Galton.

However, Chelsea displayed resilience and determination as the match progressed. Kerr, renowned for her ability to shine in crucial moments, once again delivered when it mattered most, scoring the decisive goal that secured victory for her team.
