Women's Super League talking points: Chelsea show their champions mentality in victory over Manchester City while Jess Park stars for Everton

For 45 minutes, Chelsea looked every inch the powerful side that clinched a third consecutive WSL title last season. But the 45 before that was another worrying display on the back of a humbling opening-day defeat at Liverpool.

Manchester City chalked up 10 efforts at goal before Fran Kirby put Chelsea ahead with their first shot on target. Even then, City immediately struck a post in search of an equaliser.

Chelsea were fortunate to be in the game, let alone leading at half-time, yet it felt like a hallmark of champions that, somehow, they were ahead.

"Sometimes you've got to do that," said Chelsea manager Emma Hayes. "First half, I thought we overplayed, we overdid it and went from underplaying a week ago to overplaying this week. We've got to find the balance, but it is the second game, I thought it looked like a second game of the season.

"Our performance second half was what I was expecting from us, it was much more controlled, we dominated all areas."
