    The sending off has really hindered Manchester City. Losing one of your most experienced players. Chelsea are dominant in that midfield area. It’s 3 v 2 in there. What do you do if you’re Manchester City? If you match them up you have got no outlet.

  2. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Man City

    Chelsea continue to seek what would surely be a game-sealing goal, but Ji fires over from the edge of the box. Soon after, the same player has another attempt blocked. They have spurned some chances, the Blues.

  3. Scott sees red

    Red card or not?

  4. SUBSTITUTION

    Chelsea 1-0 Man City

    Here comes Ellen White to provide a bit more of a physical presence in attack for City. They’ve offered nothing in that regard in the last 15 minutes. She was joint top-scorer in the 2019 World Cup with six goals, so she certainly knows where the net is.

    Stanway departs.

    It comes after Steph Houghton received a bit of treatment for an elbow to the head by her own keeper as City cleared another Chelsea ball into the middle.

    Chelsea 1-0 Man City

    Chelsea come again. Ji finds England in the box but she fires over from near the penalty spot.

  6. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Man City

    Since the red card, City have barely been out of their own half. They’ve gone from bossing possession to chasing the ball. And the game.

    Emma Sanders

    BBC Sport at Wembley

    Sam Kerr’s Wembley nightmare is over. She’s clapped on the back by three teammates on her way off and Emma Hayes gives her a strong high five too. She looks devastated. It’s not been a good day.

  9. Post update

    Chelsea 1-0 Man City

    Changes for Chelsea.

    Fran Kirby departs after a very useful 70 minute reintroduction to the game. Sam Kerr is also off after what can only be described as an absolute nightmare in front of goal.

    Beth England and Erin Cuthbert are on.

    Chelsea 1-0 Man City

    It is all Chelsea now. Leupolz fires an effort from the edge of the box over before Ji punts an effort right into the midriff of Roebuck.

  13. SUBSTITUTION

    Chelsea 1-0 Man City

    City have a serious job on their hands now. Their first response is to call on a World Cup winner. On comes American Sam Mewis.

    Absolutely smashes it. Great strike. You can see the dip and curl, that’s what beats the keeper. Wonderful strike. Sam Kerr has had chance after chance and the centre-back steps up and does what she does best.

  15. GOAL – Chelsea 1-0 Man City

    Millie Bright

    Pick that out!

    Millie Bright, centre-back, scorer of one goal in 23 games last season, shows Sam Kerr the way to do it with an absolute screamer.

    She latches on to a square ball about 25 yards out and hits a fierce, dipping effort that flies over Roebuck and in.

  16. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 Man City

    The game has swung dramatically in Chelsea’s favour now. They shout for a penalty as Stokes looks to hold back Kirby in the box, but the referee isn’t interested.

    It was late. Is it a yellow card? Probably. It is high. That was two committed players going for it.

    It changes the game. Manchester City will have to be more defensive. They don’t eally have a centre forward now. Can Chelsea use the spare player wisely?

  18. RED CARD

    Chelsea 0-0 Man City

    We’ve got a bit of a Chris Kamara moment here.

    Jill Scott has been sent off but barely anyone seems to have noticed. It looks a very harsh decision to me. She has slid in to tackle Ji and caught the Chelsea player in the back with her knee on the follow-through. But both players went to ground. What could Scott do to avoid making contact?

    Another big moment. Good movement in behind, she beats the defenders for pace. You can see what she’s trying to do. She’s trying to wrap her foot around and curl it around but she’s got her toe on it. It’s another big miss. Sometimes as a centre forward it’s like ‘it’s one of those days, just get me off the pitch’.

  20. Post update

    Chelsea 0-0 Man City

    Anything Stanway can do, Kerr can do much worse.

    She is clear, has just Roebuck to beat and opens up her body to do just that. Instead of side-footing into the net, though, as you expect from a player of her quality, she fluffs it and sends the ball wide.

    Awful.
