GK: Ellie Roebuck - 6/10 - Palmed away a dangerous, deep cross from Reiten in the second half and made a great save to keep out James. Couldn't have done much about either goal.RB: Kerstin Casparij - 6/10 - Making her WSL debut. Got beaten by Reiten on a couple of occasions and struggled when the Chelsea winger had a go at her. Looked promising going forward; sent Kelly scampering away with a cracking ball in the first half. CB: Steph Houghton - 5/10 - Fortunate to not be punished after her loose back pass was picked up by Kerr early in the first half, but beaten all ends up by Fleming in the build up to Chelsea's opener - with Sarina Wiegman in the stands.CB: Alex Greenwood - 6/10 - Typically tidy in possession and solid defensively.LB: Leila Ouahabi - 5/10 - Making her WSL debut, beaten by the quick feet of James on a number of occasions and struggled against the impressive Chelsea forward. Conceded a penalty for handball for Chelsea's second.CM: Laia Aleixandri - 6/10 - Tidy in possession, flicked an effort just the wrong side of the post early in the second half. Growing into the deep lying midfield role after struggling a bit last week.CM: Laura Coombs - 6/10 - Had a fizzing strike deflect over following a flowing team move and saw an effort kept out by Berger on the stroke of half time. CM: Deyna Castellanos - 5/10 - Making her maiden WSL start and looked lively in the final third. Faded in the second half.RW: Chloe Kelly - 6/10 - Fired low at Berger and saw another effort kept out by a Mjelde block, having worked the opportunity herself. Quieter in the second half after being largely starved of service.ST: Bunny Shaw - 7/10 - Looked bright from the off, riding three challenges with a burst forward deep in the Chelsea half and having an effort narrowly deflect wide in the opening 45. City's most dangerous player.LW: Lauren Hemp - 5/10 -
