Chelsea scored two goals in four minutes to end Manchester United’s perfect start to the Women’s Super League season at Leigh Sports Village.
United had won five consecutive games without conceding a single goal.
But one sloppy passage of play gave Sophie Ingle the opportunity to pick out Sam Kerr, who fired her shot into the bottom corner past goalkeeper Mary Earps.
United were opened up again when a long ball got behind the defence and found Kerr in space on the edge of the area and Lauren James coolly converted her simple pass.
United pulled one back through Alessia Russo’s swept shot but Erin Cuthbert sealed the deal for Chelsea in injury time.
Chelsea move level on points with Arsenal at the top of the WSL.
