Chelsea set a new Women’s Super League record of 32 matches unbeaten after thumping Aston Villa on Wednesday.

Two years to the day since their last league defeat, Emma Hayes’ side surpassed Manchester City’s record of 31 games unbeaten between 2015 and 2017 will a 4-0 win over the Midlands side.

Sam Kerr broke the deadlock in the early stages, the Australian international producing a thumping left-footed volley past Aston Villa goalkeeper Lisa Weiss.

Kerr turned provider and executed a precise cross to find striker Bethany England, who headed the ball into the top corner as Chelsea doubled their lead before half-time.

In the second half, Emma Hayes' side continued from where they left off.

Pernille Harder glided a low drive into the bottom right-corner to give the Blues their third goal of the game.

And Chelsea claimed a four-goal cushion before the hour mark when Blues skipper Magdalena Eriksson slotted the ball into the far post to secure the three points.
