Leicester manager Jonathan Morgan and Crystal Palace goalkeeper Chloe Morgan are among the guests on this week’s Women’s Football Show on Sky Sports.

Morgan was full of praise for Chelsea Women and their manager Emma Hayes, as they look to secure a quadruple this season.

They play Barcelona in the final of the Champions League on May 16, while Wednesday's 2-0 win at Tottenham saw them return to the top of the WSL, where they face a thrilling finale on Sunday as they look to defeat Reading and edge out Manchester City to secure the title.

"What Emma Hayes and Chelsea have done for the women's game and Super League (WSL) is massive by getting a British team into the final," said Morgan.

"I just hope they go on and win it. It will inspire the next generation of girls across the country. They are definitely trailblazers for all teams to aspire to.

Morgan also praised the sense of camaraderie Hayes has developed among her star-studded squad.
