The excellent strike of beth England gave Chelsea victory over Tottenham in their first Women’s Super League game at Stamford Bridge.
England, that made her international debut against Belgium for Phil Neville’s team last week, fired into the top-left corner.
Chelsea might have extended their lead when Drew Spence and Guro Reiten possibly struck the woodwork.
The hosts dominated the match in front of 24,564 fans in the scene of the men in parts but they were analyzed from the side.
Spurs have been a danger going forward – Rachel Furness and Gemma Davison both had opportunities.
However, it was going to be a challenging day for Tottenham if Chelsea captain Magdalena Eriksson withdrew inches broad by an unmarked position, and they were up against it from the off.
There was a carnival feel during the game, set in place around Stamford Bridge before kick-off using a DJ set from JLS singer Marvin Humes and popcorn stands.
And on the pitch, the 24,000 lovers who’d picked up tickets were rewarded with a feast of World Cup talent in the Blues line-up, including England defender Millie Bright, South Korea’s Ji So-yun and Norway’s Maren Mjelde and attacking soccer.
The presence was just over 6,000 short of this album WSL figure placed at the Manchester derby in the Etihad Stadium on Saturday.
