Chelsea fired a warning to the rest of the Women’s Super League with a comfortable 2-0 victory over Manchester City in the Women’s Community Shield.

Millie Bright fired in a 30-yard stunner on 66 minutes to put Chelsea ahead before Erin Cuthbert made sure of the victory in the first minute of stoppage-time.
