Watford 1 (Natkiel 34) Chelsea 5 (Rowell og 16, Ogimi pen 25, Chapman 28, So-Yun 42,51)
South Korea international Ji So-Yun scored twice as Chelsea claimed their second win in the FA WSL Continental Cup this week by beating Watford at Berkhamsted FC.
The Blues had the result in the bag with something to spare as the strong line up named by manager Emma Hayes outclassed their FA WSL 2 opponents, ruthlessly punishing their mistakes.
Christiane Endler made her debut in goal for Chelsea whilst there was the welcome sight of Claire Rafferty returning to the starting line up following a long term injury.
Chelsea were presented with the lead when Eniola Aluko's low cross from the right was turned into her own net by the unfortunate Cally Rowell.
The Golden Girls were the architects of their own downfall again when Ellie Butterwick bundled into the back of Hannah Blundell in the area with Yuki Ogimi dispatching her penalty. The game was over as a contest after just 28 minutes when Chelsea captain Katie Chapman beat Lauren Davey to a through ball and passed into the empty net.
Watford pulled one back when Renee Hector flicked on Sarah Wiltshire's corner and Kate Natkiel turned the ball in from close range at the back post.
But Ji resumed normal service for Chelsea when she nodded the ball over Davey before she smashed her second - and Chelsea's fifth - into the roof of the net six minutes after the restart.
Watford: Lauren Davey, Ellie Butterwick, Chloe Gunn, Bonnie Horwood, Renee Hector, Josie Green (sub Georgia Mays 45mins), Cally Rowell (sub Megan Wynne 45mins), Emma Beckett, Magda Mosengo (sub Emily Heaslip 70mins), Sarah Wiltshire, Kate Natkiel.
Chelsea: Christiane Endler, Hannah Blundell, Claire Rafferty (sub Emma Wilhelmsson 45mins), Laura Coombs, Gilly Flaherty, Laura Bassett, Yuki Ogimi, Katie Chapman (sub Jenna Dear 45mins), Eniola Aluko (sub Millie Farrow 55mins), Ji So-Yun, Jackie Groenen.
