Match ends, Bristol City WFC 0, Chelsea Ladies 2.
Chelsea Ladies secured the Women's Super League title with a hard-fought victory against Bristol City.
The Blues, led by assistant Paul Green with manager Emma Hayes advised not to travel at this stage of her pregnancy, were rarely troubled by the Vixens.
Drew Spence headed Chelsea in front, before City's Millie Farrow fired right at Hedvig Lindahl from six yards out.
Jonna Anderson fired in a late second to secure the result as FA Cup winners Chelsea wrapped up a domestic double.
Ji So-yun cracked a long-distance effort against the bar in added time, with Bristol City unable to respond.
The visitors, who beat Arsenal in the FA Cup final earlier this month, are now only one game away from finishing the season unbeaten in the league.
Unbeaten Chelsea secure famous five
Chelsea's title success gave them their fifth major crown in the club's history and their second in 11 days.
Hayes' side - who reached the Champions league semi-finals this term - had never won a trophy prior to her arrival in 2012, but this is the second double of her tenure, matching their efforts from 2015.
The Blues also won 2017's transitional WSL 1 Spring Series, but were not awarded the WSL trophy because of the event's one-off eight-game format.
They had looked set for a close battle with 2016 WSL champions Manchester City, but three defeats in their past five games left Nick Cushing's side out of contention.
Chelsea will have to replace a number of key figures when they attempt to retain their title in 2018-19, with England midfielder Katie Chapman, 35, retiring and defender Claire Rafferty, 29, leaving at the end of the season.
But their immediate thoughts will turn to their final game of the season against Liverpool as they aim to finish a remarkable season unbeaten in the league.
Chelsea midfielder Gemma Davison:
"We knew that we'd have to stay focused on this game and we wanted to make sure we got the result as well to keep winning and stay unbeaten.
"We stayed focused and patient throughout the game. Good teams do that, and we put the pressure on in the last 30 minutes and got our rewards.
"We all know that every player in our changing room can make a difference. Drew Spence has had a phenomenal season and she deserves a lot of credit for that goal.
"This whole squad's got a good character about it and we've displayed it all season."
