Aussie Sam Kerr has blown the world away again with a stunning performance and highlight that’s going viral.
Sam Kerr, we are not worthy.
Chelsea had to sweat before clinching their third consecutive Women’s Super League title on Sunday night, recovering twice by beating Manchester United 4-2 and dismissing the Arsenal challenge.
Kerr showed why she was crowned Player of the Year by the football writers this week with two incredible flurries in the second half when the Blues pushed back twice by going behind before half-time.
One of those goals was simply bizarre.
Martha Thomas and Ella Toone scored on both sides of Erin Cuthbert’s Chelsea equalizer as United fought to keep their Champions League hopes alive next season.
Kerr led the fight by scoring within 60 seconds of restarting. Guro’s driving then gave Chelsea the lead before Kerr struck the title in style with his 20th goal in as many games.
“In the first half I thought we were a little nervous. I was definitely feeling nervous, ”Kerr said.
“In the second half it was just about playing how we play. That’s why we are champions, when we play like this nobody can stop us. ”
Kerr now has seven Golden Boot awards in three leagues over six years.
BBC’s Emma Sanders summed it up on Twitter: “She was promised trophies if she joined Chelsea. This was her sixth major trophy in two years with the club and it’s clear the 28-year-old is having a great time. Kerr does the unthinkable and produces “mundanes”.
Arsenal finished just one point behind the champions after finishing the season with a comfortable 2-0 win at West Ham.
Manchester City’s 4-0 win in Reading also meant that United’s result was irrelevant in the Champions League run as City took third place.
