Chelsea boss Emma Hayes says her side will treat Sunday's final match of the season against Reading like a "cup final" after a 2-0 win at Tottenham moved them two points clear at the top of the Women's Super League.

The Blues are in pole position to secure back-to-back Super League titles after Australia international Sam Kerr netted a brace against Spurs, taking her tally for the season to 20.

Looking ahead to the weekend, Hayes said: "It'll be a cup final for us and I'll approach it as such. We have to win the game.

"As coaches we want everything. Some people have played a lot of football in recent weeks and this is another real credit to the whole squad for getting the win.

"The Bayern game took a lot out of us emotionally, so I was wondering what our performance would be like today."
