The Blues will play FA Cup winner Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday, while City is away at Aston Villa.

"We will be leaving nothing on the pitch, we will be giving everything and no matter what the result is," Chelsea midfielder Erin Cuthbert said after Wednesday's win.

"At least we can look each other in the eye and say we gave everything."


It's a thrilling end to Chelsea's Emma Hayes era, as the decorated WSL coach will take over the United States Women's National Team (USWNT) in June.

Hayes all but conceded the title race early this month after Chelsea fell to Liverpool 4-3.

"I'd love to bring titles again to Chelsea but that's not going to be this year I'm afraid," she said at the time. "My job now is to prepare the team for the last few games to continue to compete and enjoy."

Whether it was mind games or true disappointment, Hayes lit something inside Chelsea, and their next two performances proved the Blues would not be denied a shot at silverware.

As for Saturday's end-of-season schedule, Hayes belives her team is facing the "tougher of the two games."

"It's a fitting finale for me, being my final game," she told BBC Sport. "As I said to the players if someone gives you a second chance in life, make sure you don't need a third one. We're in the position we want to be in, and we'll give it everything on Saturday no matter what."
