Hayes will be keen to bow out on a high

After losing the FA Cup semi-final to Manchester United earlier this month, the Blues are now unable to win a historic treble.

The Blues had already lost the Conti Cup final to Arsenal so manager Emma Hayes will be determined to ensure she wins at least one piece of silverware before she leaves Stamford Bridge after 12 years in charge.

The 47-year-old is set to take over as the United States head coach this summer but, in addition to winning the WSL for the seventh time, she would be ecstatic if she could also guide Chelsea to their first Champions League crown.
