Chelsea Ladies booked a spot in the fifth round of the Women’s FA Cup after a 10-0 win against London Bees away from home.
The Chelsea ladies were dominant against the second-tier WSL opponents as Erin Cuthbert scored a hat-trick, with Chelsea taking complete control from the moment the Scottish forward clipped home a delightful lob in the 20th minute. By the half-hour mark our lead was three, courtesy of a fine build-up and finish by Ji So-Yun and an unfortunate own goal following a teasing cross by Karen Carney.
Fran Kirby took advantage of a goalkeeping howler to tap-in our fourth shortly after half-time and she added our fifth midway through the second period, finishing smartly at the near post after creating a yard of space for herself. The England striker then played in the cross for Katie Chapman to make it six, and minutes later Millie Bright added her name to the scoresheet.
Two late goals from Cuthbert secured her first hat-trick for Chelsea and there was still time for Chapman to add a 10th.
