Chelsea secured a third FA WSL title in four years in style as they ran out 5-0 winners over Reading FC Women on Sunday.
The Blues went into the match needing a win to be confirmed as Champions and got the start they wanted when Melanie Leupolz gave them a second minute lead. Fran Kirby then scored either side of half time to put them three ahead, before Sam Kerr and Erin Cuthbert rounded off the scoring.
Manchester City did all they could but will once again have to settle for the runners-up spot. Ellen White scored the only goal of the game with fifteen minutes remaining to give them a 1-0 win at West Ham Utd but with matters out of their hands, it was not quite enough overall.
Arsenal picked up the point they needed to take the final Champions League spot when they shared a goalless draw with Aston Villa, who in turn got the result they wanted to stay up. A game of few chances saw a determined and resilient Villa side defend strongly to keep the Gunners at bay and secure a place in the top flight next season.
Despite a 2-0 win against Everton, Manchester Utd end up in fourth place, just missing out on European football by a single point. Ella Toone opened the scoring for United after six minutes and they never relinquished the lead from that point, wrapping up the points late on when Kirsty Hanson scored the second.
Tottenham Hotspur ended their campaign on a winning note, with a 1-0 success away to Birmingham City who were able to celebrate survival at the end of the match. Kit Graham scored the only goal of the game for Spurs, nineteen minutes from time.
Bristol City's battle to stay up ended in vain as they were beaten 3-1 by Brighton & Hove Albion, who claimed their highest ever finish and a top half place. Maya Le Tissier put the Seagulls in front after seven minutes, and their lead was doubled by Lee Geum-Min early in the second half. City fought back and gave themselves hope when Abi Harrison pulled one back just after the hour but their fate was sealed as Brighton made the points safe through a deflected free kick from Inness Kaagman with fourteen minutes remaining.
