Chelsea floored by mighty Reds show
 Women's Football News 19 May 2013
Chelsea 0 Liverpool 4 (Dowie 11,12, Rolser 30, Williams 85)
Liverpool gained full revenge for last week's league defeat by Chelsea with a four-goal demolition of the Blues in their Continental Cup group match to earn a semi final place. 
Dominating from first to last, the only possible disappointment for the Reds was that they did not add to their tally, having created at least a dozen clear cut chances through great attacking fluidity.
Ironically, Chelsea had the first effort on goal through Kate Longhurst's snap shot from an Eniola Aluko pass but Liverpool were soon attcking from all angles. Katrin Omarsdottir had a shot blocked then twice put headers wide from corners. Nicole Rolser hit the bar with a shot from wide on the right, then had an effort deflected for a corner.
Dunia Susi forced Sarah Quantrill into action for the first time but Liverpool then struck twice in as many minutes through Natasha Dowie. First, the striker lobbed a delicate finish past Shannon Lynn after clever play from Amanda da Costa and Fara Williams, then she nodded a close range finish after a superb Whitney Engen crossfield pass had allowed Lucy Bronze space to cross.
Dowie and Da Costa both missed decent chances before Rolser beat the offside trap from Louise Fors' pass to finish calmly for a three goal lead on the half hour. Aluko nearly pulled an immediate goal back but shot straight at Quantrill after beating two defenders on 33 minutes. Corina Schroder exploited acres of space on the left to close in on goal but was foiled by a fine Lynn save at her near post to keep the half time score down to three.
It seemed that the pattern would be unchanged on the restart as Lynn again denied Williams. Schroder crossed for Rolser to volley wide from ten yards, Dowie missed an easy chance for her hat-trick and Da Costa blasted another chance wide in the first ten minutes. Chelsea manager Emma Hayes bought on Ester and Helen Ward, changing formation to allow Susi to show her attacking flair. The Brazilian hit a half chance out of the ground but Susi brought out a good save from Quantrill after a fine run and shot on the hour.
Understandably, the Reds were content to absorb the Chelsea attacks, but were still dangerous on the break. Williams curled in an inviting cross which evaded both Dowie and Bronze, Rolser lobbed wide after hesitation in the Blues defence, Susi tracked back 70 yards to deny the same player then substitute Lillie Fenlon-Billson was brought down by Olina Vidarsdottir for Rolser to shoot inches wide.
The final goal on 85 minutes came when Lynn was booked for bringing down Fenlon-Billson outside the area and was then beaten at her near post by Wiliams' free kick.
Chelsea completed their third game in seven days a well beaten side. Unable to cope with the pressing tactics of the Liverpool midfield and constantly undone by the movement and interplay of the Reds' attack, they may well feel relieved to have escaped with only four conceded. The Blues must have put in an immense effort to have overcome Liverpool seven days earlier but the visitors certainly found the performance to turn the tables in style.
Chelsea: Shannon Lynn, Dunia Susi, Naomi Cole (sub Helen Bleazard 70mins), Laura Coombs, Olina Vidarsdottir, Katie Holtham, Edda Gardarsdottir (sub Ester Dos Santos 51mins), Danielle Buet, Eniola Aluko, Kate Longhurst (sub Helen Ward 51mins), Sofia Jakobsson. Subs not used: Jessica Myers, Drew Spence, Hannah Blundell.

Liverpool: Sarah Quantrill, Lucy Bronze, Whitney Engen, Fara Williams, Gemma Bonner, Corina Schroder (sub Sophie Riccio 77mins), Amanda Da Costa (sub Jess Holbrook 77mins), Katrin Omarsdottir, Natasha Dowie (sub Lillie Fenlon-Billson 82mins), Louise Fors, Nicole Rolser. Subs not used: Danielle Gibbons, Becky Easton, Hannah Keryakoplis.
