Drew Spence lead Chelsea Ladies at the front against the city of Bristol

The Chelsea Ladies gained the Women's Super League title, in addition to a domestic double, through defeating the Bristol City Women 2-0 on Tuesday evening.

In the initial half, Drew Spence lead visitors Chelsea ahead, and Jonna Andersson fired in what was a late second goal as Chelsea advanced a nine point clear at the table head.

For Emma Hayes', the manager's team, the victory meant that they contributed silverware for the league to the Women's FA Cup.

The Chelsea captain, Katie Chapman, said to BT Sport: "It's great to be in this team. You can see what it means to the team. We performed really well this year and I think we deserved another double.", as her fellow team-mates celebrated their success.

"To go out with two trophies is unreal. I love this team and I love this club and I think we're deserving of that. Hopefully we can go the whole (league) season unbeaten - so we've still got one game to go (against Liverpool on Sunday)." , said Chapman, who announced last week that she'd be retiring at the end of the season.

"I've loved ending my career at Chelsea. These girls are great and our team is fantastic. What an honour for me to play in a team like this and to do the double with them.

"I'm sure we can celebrate a little bit (tonight). But we have got one more game and we do want to go unbeaten - that's me being competitive - so we'll focus on that game too."

"We were happy when we won the FA Cup but it wouldn't have been a complete season without winning the league.", said Goalscorer Spence.

"Get in. A pleasure to watch that from home. Champions of England, we know who we are. Love you girls x", wrote Hayes, who was not present as she gets ready for the twins' birth, stated in a tweet: 

Chelsea striker Fran Kirby won the Professional Footballers' Association and Football Writers' Association women's player of the year awards this term.

She said to BT Sport following Chelsea's collection of the WSL trophy, that: "This is something we set out for at the beginning of the season. We wanted to win as much as we can and we've got the team that can do it."

She named the display team against Bristol City, "a bit average, but we won", and said further: "I'm really delighted with the way I've been but the most important thing is that we've lifted that trophy."

Her message for her boss, Hayes, was: "We wish her well and we're glad we could get the job done now for her and she didn't have to wait and panic until Sunday. Everyone sends their best and we're just glad we could win the trophy for her."
