Sir Alex Ferguson, who led Manchester United to 38 trophies during 26 years in charge, has emergency surgery for a brain haemorrhage.
• Arsenal 1-3 Chelsea
• Miedema 73 | Bachmann 48 60, Kirby 76
A Ramona Bachmann double and goal from in-form Fran Kirby gave Chelsea their first silverware of the season and exorcised the ghosts of two years ago. This was a rematch of the 2016 final, which the Chelsea manager Emma Hayes said the Blues “didn’t turn up for”, when a curling Danielle Carter strike won Arsenal the trophy. This time Chelsea did show up and a goal from Vivianne Miedema to reduce the deficit to 2-1 wasn’t enough to turn the game for Arsenal.
The opening chances fell to Arsenal. Three minutes in Beth Mead was able to break free on the left, her teasing ball into the box was poked clear before it could reach a red shirt. Seconds later, Jordan Nobbs played an almost identical ball in, this time from the right, but Maren Mjelde got herself in front of a waiting Miedema.
