Chelsea 1-0 Servette: Sam Kerr signs new contract with Champions League goal

With Emma Hayes’ side claiming a 7-0 victory in the second leg earlier this month, Chelsea were not too convincing for much of the game and struggled to convert their dominance into terms of possession in something significant on several occasions. .

Still, Kerr, who recently signed a new two-year contract with the club, proved the difference after hanging on to a brilliant pass from Fran Kirby.

Hailed as “one of the best strikers, if not the best striker in the world” by Hayes in preparation for the match, the Australian helped her side take a four point lead over Juventus in Group A in a otherwise difficult evening for Chelsea.

To their credit, Servette defended well and could have easily pulled something off in what would have been a major shock, although their task was made much more difficult in the finals when Amandine Soulard was sent off for two remaining infractions.

As frustrating as it may have been at times, the result crowns a brilliant few days for Hayes, having beaten Manchester City for the first time in the WSL on Sunday.
