    A proud Chelsea manager Emma Hayes watched on from home tonight following advice not to travel at the end of her pregnancy. She may have been at home, but she wasn't left out of the celebrations, as assistant Paul Green explained.

    "I haven't spoken to Emma, but one of the girls Facetimed her during the celebrations," he said.

    Green took charge in her absence and completed the job. He's now aiming to complete the domestic season unbeaten.

    "We've got one game to go and we want to remain unbeaten," he added to BT Sport. "We go to Liverpool looking to make that happen."

  3. Kirby: Champions League the next aim

    FT: Bristol City 0-2 Chelsea

    Chelsea forward Fran Kirby has scored 25 goals this season to win the Player of the Year award.

    She admits that Chelsea were off the boil this evening, but they still managed to get the job done to cap a wonderful season for her and the team.

    "I wanted to come back and stay fit (this season) and that was my main goal and whatever else happened was a bonus," she told BT Sport.

    "The most important thing is that we lifted that trophy. We are at a stage now where can can say the Champions League is our ambition.

    "We are still behind the likes of Wolfsburg and Lyon, but we've learnt a valuable lesson and we will come back stronger."

  4. Champagne is flowing

    FT: Bristol City 0-2 Chelsea

    Captain Katie Chapman and vice-captain Gilly Flaherty lift the WSL 1 trophy high into the sky.

    The champagne is popped and the chants of "champions" begin. Chelsea have wrapped up the title with a game to spare, going 17 games unbeaten.

  5. Fairytale ending for Chapman

    FT: Bristol City 0-2 Chelsea

    Chelsea's Katie Chapman has seen it all. The midfielder has won countless trophies over her glittering career and will retire at the end of the season.

    It's not a bad way to go out for the 35-year-old.

    "We've performed really well this season," she told BT Sport.

    "It's an easy decision to end on a high with his club. I've loved ending my career with Chelsea. It's an honour to play in a team like this with these girls.

    "I'm sure we can celebrate a bit, but we've still got one more game to go (against Liverpool on Sunday.)"

  6. Chelsea do the double

    FT: Bristol City 0-2 Chelsea

    Chelsea have the WSL 1 title to go with the FA Cup trophy they claimed 10 days ago against Arsenal.

    It's a perfect end to an impressive domestic season for the Blues and goalscorer Drew Spence is delighted with how it played out tonight.

    "We've been working all year for this," she told BT Sport.

    "We had the FA Cup, but the season wouldn't have been complete without the league to go with it - I think we've deserved it.

    "We had to make sure we got the last two wins to close it out."

  7. Post update

    The full-time whistle may have blown, but don't head off just yet.

    We'll hear from some of Chelsea's newly-crowned champions in just a few moments' time...

  8. FULL-TIME

    Bristol City 0-2 Chelsea

    Drew Spence

    Chelsea are WSL 1 champions, with the win enough to seal the trophy with a game to spare. Manchester City are nine points adrift in second place with two games left.

    Drew Spence's first-half header gave them the lead at the Stoke Gifford Stadium before Jonna Andersson's late strike added gloss to the score-line.

    Seventh-placed Bristol City fought hard but were unable to delay the coronation.

    Just Sunday's trip to Liverpool stands between the Blues and an unbeaten Super League season.

  9. GREAT SAVE!

    Bristol City 0-2 Chelsea

    What a save from Bristol City's Sophie Baggaley!

    Ji So-Yun hits a lovely shot from distance, but the City keeper tips it onto the crossbar.

  10. GOAL Bristol City 0-2 Chelsea

    Jonna Andersson (88 mins)

    Finally Chelsea have their second goal.

    Fran Kirby gets to the byline on the right-hand side and cuts the ball back across the six-yard box for Jonna Andersson to blast high into the net.

    The title is surely theirs now.

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    Bristol City 0-1 Chelsea

    Right-back Hannah Blundell head to the bench, with striker Eni Aluko coming on.

    Can she add to her five WSL 1 goals this season to cap it off?

  12. Post update

    Bristol City 0-1 Chelsea

    Gemma Davison shoots... and the ball ends up going out for a throw-in by the corner flag.

    Yana Daniels is replaced by Carla Humphrey for the final 10 minutes.

  14. CLOSE!

    Bristol City 0-1 Chelsea

    A double save from Chelsea stopper Hedvig Lindahl.

    Bristol City 0-1 Chelsea

    Another chance for Erin Cuthbert, but the Chelsea forward leans back and spoons a volley well wide off the outside of her foot.

  17. SUBSTITUTION

    Bristol City 0-1 Chelsea

    A second change for Bristol City as Olivia Fergusson comes on to replace Millie Farrow, who squandered City's best chances in the first half.
