Women’s Champions League and Super League: weekend talking points

Chelsea fall agonisingly short in Europe while teenage goalscorer Issy Hobson grabs the headlines for Everton

Emma Hayes praised the Chelsea fans who watched the team’s Champions League exit to Barcelona at a sold-out Stamford Bridge on Saturday and urged them to return next season. “The crowd were fantastic, they really were,” said Hayes. “I could feel their energy and they were really pushing us. I hope the club builds on it and they make sure they return. The most important thing for me is that they keep coming back.” Hayes also expressed fury at the decision-making of the officials, with the defeat marred by the sending off of Kadeisha Buchanan and penalty awarded to Barcelona for a foul in Aitana Bonmatí that ensured a 2-0 defeat on the night and 2-1 loss on aggregate. “Tonight is a tough one to take as we felt we didn’t really get a chance to lose,” she said.
