Elsewhere, Birmingham City beat Oxford United 3-0 courtesy of goals from Kirsty Linnett, Freda Ayisi and Melissa Lawley, while Rachel Williams’ first-half strike gave Notts County a 1-0 win over FA WSL 1 strugglers Bristol Academy.

 

And the former Barcelona forward’s second came after more confusion in the Chelsea backline. This time Chelsea full-back Ana Borges collided with Hourihan and Corredera made no mistake to slot home from close-range.

 

Corredera’s opener came after 18 minutes into the game after a defensive mix-up between centre-back Gilly Flaherty and goalkeeper Marie Hourihan allowed the Spaniard to poke home into an empty net.

 

Marta Corredera’s first-half double gave Arsenal Ladies a 2-0 win at league leaders Chelsea, ensuring the Gunners stayed top of Continental Cup Group One.
