Chelsea fired a warning to the rest of the Women’s Super League with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Manchester City in the Women’s Community Shield.

Millie Bright fired in a 30-yard stunner on 66 minutes to put Chelsea ahead before Erin Cuthbert made sure of the victory in the first minute of stoppage-time.

City had Jill Scott sent off just four minutes before Bright’s opener and saw new signing Chloe Kelly hit the post and Janine Becker have a goal ruled out for offside in the first half.

But Chelsea took charge after the break and if it had not been for the woeful finishing of striker Sam Kerr, they would have been ahead long before Bright’s superb long-range strike.
