Chelsea returned to winning ways in the Women's Continental League Cup with a 3-1 quarter-final win over Tottenham at Brisbane Road.

Spurs showed signs of improvement from recent games, but WSL champions were too strong and never looked back once Sam Kerr deflected an Erin Cuthbert effort beyond Tinja-Riikka Korpela not long before half-time. R ehanne Skinner's Spurs side battled hard and had good chances to draw level with both Drew Spence and Rose Ayane going close to levelling a tight cup tie.

But Fran Kirby came off the bench to produce a superb finish to end the tie, the England international curling home a first time finish after good work from Lauren James. Kerr then got her second late on after a quickly taken free-kick from substitute Jessie Fleming.

Drew Spence did score against her former club to give Spurs a late consolation with a sensational strike in the dying seconds, but it was too late. A deserved win in their first League Cup tie of the season keeps Chelsea on course for a historic quadruple this season, after the Blues were given a bye to the last eight due to their participation in the Champions League.
