Once the match commenced, Chelsea quickly asserted dominance. Guro Reiten’s midfield interception set up Lauren James for the opening goal. Minutes later, Erin Cuthbert’s effort found the net via a deflection off Sjoeke Nusken for Chelsea’s second goal. Johanna Rytting Kaneryd extended Chelsea’s lead with a deflected strike.

Arsenal attempted to turn the tide with three changes at halftime, but their efforts fell short. Chelsea’s goalkeeper Hannah Hampton thwarted Katie McCabe’s attempt, while James missed a chance to extend Chelsea’s lead.

Despite Chelsea’s dominance, Arsenal managed a consolation goal through Kim Little’s deflected strike. However, any hopes of a late comeback were dashed, as Chelsea held on to secure the victory.
