Chelsea recorded back-to-back Women's Super League wins for the first time this season as Ramona Bachmann's second-half brace downed West Ham.

Bachmann tucked home the rebound after her initial shot hit the post as heavy Chelsea pressure was finally rewarded.

The Swiss striker sealed the win late on, curling home from about 15 yards.

United keeper Becky Spencer had earlier kept Chelsea at bay, denying Fran Kirby one-on-one and making fingertip stops from Hannah Blundell and Beth England.

Chelsea, who reached the Champions League quarter-finals in midweek, remain in fourth place, level on points with Birmingham but with an inferior goal difference.
