Sam Kerr at the double as Chelsea return to the top of the Women’s Super League

A brace from Sam Kerr earned Chelsea a comfortable 2-0 win over Aston Villa and moved them back to the top of the Women’s Super League.

The Australia international opened the scoring for the Blues in the 24th minute, getting above her defender to head a looping Fran Kirby cross from the left against the right-hand post and into the net.

The second goal also came from a Kerr-Kirby combination in the 57th minute as Emma Hayes’ team moved two points clear of Manchester City at the summit.

Hayley Raso scored a hat-trick as Everton thrashed in-form Brighton 5-0.

The sixth-placed Seagulls had won their last four matches but had no answer to Australian midfielder Raso at the Broadfield Stadium.
