Managers’ reaction

Chelsea manager Emma Hayes: “I’m so happy, I really am. That was so amazing for the women’s game today. Two teams who respected each other going toe-to-toe. I loved the game plan, I thought it was really aggressive, but we had to grind and work.

“I think Man City are a top team, but they underestimated us today. our team, from the loss in the Continental Cup final, had a point to prove and I thought we did really well with that.”

Manchester City manager Gareth Taylor: “Of course I’m going to be biased, but I felt like we were the dominant team in large periods of the game.

“We were the only team in extra time that I felt like were going to go on and do it. We make a slight error, which ends up costing us. It’s difficult then, because Chelsea can see the finish line.

“Supremely proud of the team – it was just unfortunate we couldn’t quite get our noses in front when we had the ascendancy.”
