Servette 0-7 Chelsea: Player ratings as Blues run riot in Women’s Champions League

Chelsea completely outclassed Swiss champions Servette as they moved top of their Women’s Champions League group with a 7-0 victory in Geneva on Tuesday night.

The Blues were 4-0 up inside 20 minutes. Melanie Leupolz opened the scoring early on with a thumping left-foot strike before Fran Kirby made it two, finishing from Sam Kerr’s cute flick around the corner.

Kerr got on the scoresheet herself just two minutes later, tapping in after more good work from Leupolz. Then after Servette lost the ball from the restart the ‘Kerrby’ combination struck again, with the Australian striker running onto Kirby’s lofted through ball to prod home.

Chelsea managed to find two more before the break. First, Kirby rounded off a fine move by dinking the goalkeeper to get her second, before turning provider again as Jessie Fleming somehow squeezed her shot in from an acute angle.

Guro Reiten completed the rout four minutes into the second half, side-footing into the back of the net after good work from Kerr and Drew Spence in the build-up. Chelsea took their foot off the gas thereafter, but the work was done.

The result leaves Chelsea top of Group A in the Women’s Champions League. Juventus and Wolfsburg go head to head later on Tuesday, although the Germans would need a healthy victory to reclaim top spot. 90mins
