• Chelsea 0-2 Manchester City
• Parris scores twice in second half
The Manchester City manager was full of praise for Nikita Parris after she scored twice against Chelsea to secure a place in the Continental Cup final. “She has a ridiculous intensity to her play and at the minute she’s on form and her mentality is high, it’s a real asset to have someone like that on your team,” said Nick Cushing.
Parris’s 18th and 19th goals of the season punished a wasteful Chelsea, who have never reached the final of this competition, and Emma Hayes was left ruing chances missed in the first half. “I‘ve said it all along, you’ve got to take your chances,” the Chelsea manager said, wearily. “We had three glorious chances in the first half and we didn’t take them. We made an error, conceded a penalty and I think it affected us mentally. Goals win football matches. A year ago we were converting those chances.”
