Chelsea Women 5-0 Yeovil Town Ladies: Five different scorers for Blues

Chelsea Women celebrate a goal against Yeovil Town
Chelsea Women have won their past three games in the WSL

Chelsea thrashed Yeovil Town to move up to third place in the Women's Super League as the Glovers had Nicola Cousins sent off before half-time.

The Blues led 2-0 through Millie Bright and Ji So-Yun when Yeovil centre-back Cousins got a straight red for fouling Erin Cuthbert, who was through on goal.

Cuthbert then volleyed in acrobatically and Ramona Bachmann's finish gave the hosts a 4-0 lead at the break.

Beth England came off the bench to put the gloss on the victory late on.

The Blues have now won three in a row and are two points behind second-placed Manchester City, having played a game more than the Sky Blues.

Yeovil lost for the seventh time in the league this season, but the Somerset side remain 10th in the table, one point ahead of bottom club Everton.
