Arsenal Women 1-3 Chelsea Ladies

Republic of Ireland internationals Louise Quinn and Katie McCabe's were left disappointed as Chelsea beat their Arsenal side 3-1 to win the FA Cup final at Wembley.

Quinn started in central defence while Ireland captain McCabe was a late substitute.

Ramona Bachmann scored twice and Fran Kirby netted a fine individual effort for the victorious Blues.

Switzerland international Bachmann broke the deadlock three minutes into the second half with a neat finish after being set up by Kirby.

Bachmann soon curled home a second, via a slight deflection, before Arsenal pulled a goal back through Vivianne Miedema in the 74th minute.

England forward Kirby, though, ended any hopes of a recovery when she swiftly netted a third Chelsea goal as the Blues gained revenge for their 2016 final defeat in front of a record crowd of 45,423.

Emma Hayes' side could yet go on to claim the Double as they look to edge ahead of rivals Manchester City, whom they beat in the FA Cup semi-final, over the closing weeks of the Women's Super League.
