Emma Hayes' charges hammered Arsenal 3-0 during their meeting on Sunday, December 5, to lift the trophy for the third time.

The triumph saw them complete a belated 2020/21 domestic treble having also won the Super League title after hammering Reading 5-0 on the final day of the Women's Super League season.

The domestic crown was their fourth title, the most has ever won in the Women's Super League.

During the Sunday encounter, Chelsea were the dominant side from the onset and took a deserved lead via Fran Kirby after just three minutes of action.

Sam Kerr doubled the advantage after the break before she put the game to bed with 15 minutes remaining.

The victory was enough to see the Blues complete a domestic treble that was put on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic. Speaking after the victory, Kerr noted Chelsea deserved to lift the title having played well.

"I think we deserved it – I think we played really well, as we have done in the past few weeks. We knew that if we kept pushing at some point they would go in and they did. I’m paid to score goals but our defence was amazing and it was a team effort – I can’t wait to party."

Incidentally, the two London teams are currently involved in an intriguing title race in the Women's Super League and are already six points clear of their closest challengers with just eight matches played.

Thomas Tuchel responds to calls to drop key Chelsea star after West Ham defeat

In another sports report, Briefly News reported that Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has dismissed calls from a section of fans and pundits to drop Edouard Mendy following his side's 3-2 defeat to West Ham.

Mendy has managed to establish himself as one of the most solid shot-stoppers across Europe since his switch to Stamford Bridge from Rennes in 2020.

However, he had a game to forget during the Blues' trip to West Ham as he conceded a penalty midway through the match after he brought down Jarrod Bowen in the area.
