Chelsea secured their fourth consecutive Women's Super League title by beating Reading on the last day of the season.

The Blues completed a double after winning the FA Cup earlier this month and did so despite the absence of players such as Millie Bright and Fran Kirby for the run-in.

Here, we take a look at some of the key players in their title-winning campaign.

Guro Reiten

An influential winger in the Chelsea set-up, Guro Reiten has had a sterling season for the club.

The Norwegian tops the charts in terms of assists in the league this season, providing 11 in total and linking up well with striker Sam Kerr.

Reiten has also found goals when needed, scoring nine across the campaign — including the opener against Arsenal last Sunday and the clincher against Reading after setting up Kerr's opener.


Erin Cuthbert

Playing in a variety of positions, including as a full-back and forward, Erin Cuthbert has settled into a regular role in central midfield.

Cuthbert, 24, has stamped her authority in this position but is also able to work across the pitch to fill gaps where needed for the Blues.

Sam Kerr

Kerr proved an important cog in the Chelsea machine once again — despite not returning her usual numbers in front of goal.

The Australian international only has 12 WSL goals this season compared to last year's Golden Boot season of 20, but has scored when it mattered.

Her strike proved to be the difference in the crucial 1-0 win over Manchester United in March and she scored an 86-minute winner against Liverpool earlier this month. 

Kerr also netted an 89th-minute equaliser against Arsenal back in January before netting twice against Reading as Emma Hayes' side clinched the title.

Niamh Charles

Operating as a full-back and occasionally higher up the pitch if needed, Niamh Charles made an impact on Chelsea's success in the second half of the season.

The last couple of months have seen the 23-year-old help keep clean sheets in the club's last four league matches.

Charles has really come into her own with her attacking threat, however, bagging two goals and three assists in her last seven WSL matches to help Chelsea as they hit the home stretch of the season.
