Sam Kerr delivers Women's FA Cup to Chelsea in front of over 77,000 at Wembley

In front of a record crowd of 77,390 at Wembley, Chelsea lifted the Women's FA Cup for the third successive time after Sam Kerr's goal in the 68th-minute gave the Blues a 1-0 victory over Manchester United.

The Red Devils, in their fifth year of existence, are left chasing their first major piece of silverware, and it's Kerr who crushed their dreams on Sunday and who's also put United to the sword in league play (scoring in both WSL fixtures between the sides this season).

Credit also has to go to midfielder Pernille Harder, who entered the FA Cup final as a 57th-minute substitute before creating Kerr's match-winner with an excellent low cross.      

Kerr is the ultimate big game player: she has 10 goals in eight cup finals with Chelsea. Kerr also scored the winner in last year's FA Cup final

"We didn't have our best game today but it's a sign of a good team to still get the win," Kerr said after the match. "The team did amazing, I would be lying if I said it was all me. I'm just lucky to be the nine in this team."

The attendance was the largest ever for a domestic match of women's football in England.

Manchester United and Chelsea are also both competing for the Women's Super League title. The Red Devils have a one-point lead over Chelsea but the Blues maintain a game in hand. Man United have two fixtures remaining while Chelsea have three.
