Manchester United must beat their rivals Manchester City To keep hopes of the Women’s Super League titles alive, or chelsea will win the championship with a spare game.

Chelsea closed their fourth consecutive Women’s Super League title with Guro Reiten’s goals in the first half and captain Magda Eriksson’s 2-0 home win against Arsenal.

Reiten took the Blues lead with a hit in the 22nd minute and Eriksson, who announced earlier this week that he would leave the club at the end of the season, added a finish just before the break.

Katie McCabe had a chance to retract the goal with a penalty in an hour, but Emma Hayes’ side widened the lead when they were five points ahead of Manchester United at the top.

Unable to win the penultimate game of the season, United will see Chelsea win the Manchester City derby, which starts at 6:45 pm at Leigh Sports Village, and will add it to the FA Cup they won with their victory over the Red Devils at Wembley last weekend.
