Watch Full Highlight: Sam Kerr scored two brilliant goals as Chelsea Women defeat Aston Villa

Chelsea FC Women have returned to the top of the WSL table after defeat Aston Villa 2-0, in which in-form striker Sam Kerr scored both of stunning goals.

The Blues started slowly, with their first attempts took 10 minutes before registered as Fleming had her shot deflected wide.

Despite dominating possession, it took them into 24th minutes before Sam Kerr broke the deadlock with a perfectly placed header into the top corner from a Fran Kirby cross.

The Blues started second-half perfectly, in which Sam Kerr added a second goal in 57th after Lisa Weib cleared the ball straight to Kirby’s feet, and she delivered a pinpoint pass to set up Kerr’s looping left-footed effort.

Sam Kerr should have scored a hat-trick as she received a through ball shortly after, but she dragged her effort wide.

The Blues will travel to Wolfsburg in the second-leg of their Champions League quarter-final on Wednesday at 1pm, leading 2-1 from the first leg, before hosting Birmingham City in the league next Sunday at 2pm.
