Emma Hayes wanted to finish the year with “a cracker for Christmas”, and the talismanic Sam Kerr and the young England star Lauren James provided the bang in a 3-0 defeat of Paris Saint-Germain that sent Chelsea into the Champions League quarter-finals as winners of Group A.
Kerr popped up at the end of the first half to power Chelsea in front from her weaker left foot before James scored twice in the second period, giving the Blues top spot in a group that also contained Real Madrid and the Albanian side Vllaznia.
