Steph Catley and Caitlin Foord’s Arsenal overcame an early Sam Kerr goal to lift the English Continental League Cup with a 3-1 win at Selhurst Park on Sunday.
Catley and Foord both played full games as the Gunners snapped their recent poor form and ended a four-year wait for silverware.
Kerr had put the Blues ahead with a second-minute header, but the Gunners produced a strong display and were deserved winners.
Foord put in a determined display down the flanks, while Kerr was dangerous and lively throughout but unable to lift Chelsea, who also lost the cup final last season.
