Chelsea women’s despite second place declared national champions | Right away

The Chelsea women were beaten on Friday despite finishing second in the Women’s Super League. The average number of points per game was crucial for the English Football Association in the Blues’ selection.

Chelsea were one point behind leaders Manchester City (39-40) when the league was abandoned almost three months ago.

Since the London club has played one game less than City, it can still call itself champions. The average number of points per game is 2.60 to 2.50.

It is the third time Chelsea have won the Women’s Super League, which was founded in 2011. The club has no Dutch players under contract.

No Champions League for Miedema

Defending champions Arsenal finished third with an average of 2.40 points. The team of Dutch national players Vivianne Miedema, DaniĆ©lle van de Donk and Jill Roord grabs a Champions League ticket. Jackie Greens’ Manchester United finished fourth.

Liverpool, who can become champions in the men’s event this month, have been relegated as No 12. Aston Villa will replace the Reds.

Two weeks ago it was decided that the Women’s Super League would not be finished because of the coronavirus. The men will move on. The Premier League reboot is on 17 June.
