Chelsea remain on course to defend their Women’s Super League crown after securing a second victory over Tottenham in the space of five days.

The Blues had beaten Spurs 3-1 away from home on Sunday and triumphed again in the return fixture, this time running out 2-1 winners at Kingsmeadow thanks to goals from Sam Kerr and Beth England.

The result sees Emma Hayes’ side move four points clear of second-placed Arsenal, though the Gunners have three games left to play compared to Chelsea’s two.

The hosts went in front after 19 minutes when a short corner routine saw Jonna Andersson cross and England head home.

Pernille Harder almost added another for Emma Hayes’ side before Spurs equalised through Kerys Harrop’s header on the stroke of half-time.

But Kerr met Harder’s cross moments later to restore Chelsea’s lead.

Erin Cuthbert struck a post late on as the hosts, who have remaining games at Birmingham and at home to Manchester United, claimed a precious three points.
