And that is that. Football - 22 people kick a ball about for 90 minutes and in the end, Chelsea didn't win.

Liverpool did and they are the Women's Super League champions. Goodbye.

Imy Hussain: Congratulations, Liverpool!

Tom Young: Woohoo! Well done Liverpool! Excellent result!

Chuks Okoro: With more nerve-wracking ends to the season, the WSL should be televised more.

Can you take any more? Will Estonia v England provide the same drama as the conclusion of the WSL?

We're live now to find out.

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea

Sue Smith

Former England forward

"Chelsea must be so disappointed. I'm looking at the girls now and they are distraught, heads in hands. The championship was in their hands. Was the pressure a bit too much? Maybe so, because a lot of the players haven't been this situation before.

"An extraordinary end top the season, and that's fantastic, because for those of us who love women's football know this is exactly what we wanted. Liverpool have got better and better through the season as various injured players have come back, going about their business quietly and winning their games.

"It's a massive shock that the top two teams in the league both failed to get a win on the final day of the campaign. Extraordinary."

Liverpool manager Matt Beard: "I'm over the moon. The players deserve so much credit. They have dug deep.

"Our second-half performance, we dominated to get three goals. The other scores put pressure on us."

That motorbike can continue of its way to Widnes, where the champagne corks are popping. In Manchester, Chelsea are inconsolable.

Liverpool win the Women's Super League

What an amazing afternoon. From third place, Liverpool have retained the WSL, beating Bristol Academy and then watching other results go their way. Tears of joy in Widnes, tears of sadness in Manchester and Solihull. Both Chelsea and Birmingham had it in their own hands, but they could not grasp the title.

FULL-TIME

Birmingham 2-2 Notts County

All over. Birmingham have failed to beat Notts County. Unbelievably, Liverpool are the Women's Super League Champions.

FULL-TIME

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea

Chelsea's dream is over. The WSL has slipped away. Then there were two...

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea

Great save by Rachel Brooks! The teenager denies Yuki Ogimi's diving header. In Solihull, Notts County's Carly Telford continues to be a wall stopping Birmimgham.

Sue Smith

Former England forward

"The way this game's gone I still think there might be one more chance left..."

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea

...Rachel Williams heads over. Two teams in Blue search for a goal, with Notts County goalkeeper Carly Telford pulling off a brilliant save to deny Birmingham. Has that won the league for Liverpool?

FULL-TIME

Liverpool 3-0 Bristol Academy

All done in Widnes, Liverpool can do no more. Four minutes of stoppage time for Birmingham. Chelsea corner coming up...

Birmingham 2-2 Notts County

No news from Solihull. Birmingham need only one goal, but their chance of the title is slipping away. Three minutes of time added in Manchester. Three minutes for Chelsea to win the WSL.

Liverpool 3-0 Bristol Academy

Stoppage time in Widnes, Liverpool almost home. It looks like they will finish first, then they must wait.

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea

Groenen again! Finding space from Eni Aluko's cross. The Dutchwoman falls over her own feet when the goal is at her mercy, asking for a penalty. There's nothing it that.

FIVE TO GO

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea

Five to go in Manchester, the home fans getting noisy. Chelsea corner on the left, falling to Jackie Groenen, blazed over. How many more chances will Chelsea get?

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea

I wonder how far that motorbike has got to Widnes? Imagine how angry the driver will be if Chelsea score. "I'm past Warrington!"

Ric Bixter: This is amazing! Liverpool leading, but a goal in either of other matches changes everything. 10 minutes left!

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea

Chelsea pressing, Manchester City scrambling. Ball pumped into the area, cleared. Anywhere will do. Hannah Blundell with the strike, miles wide.

TEN TO GO

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea

What more can happen? We've seen the lot, but it still remains Liverpool's title. A goal in either Manchester or Solihull will change that, though. Manchester City's Toni Duggan is back up after requiring treatment, almost getting through on goal.

Chelsea have 10 minutes to win the league.

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea

Sue Smith

Former England forward

"This game is all Chelsea - they're dominating. And now Manchester City are down to 10, it's all in Chelsea's hands."

RED CARD

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea - Abbie McManus (Man City)

You can't do that. Manchester City's Abbie McManus completely loses the plot, throwing an elbow into the face of Yuki Ogimi. At first, it's a mystery as to why the red card is shown, but replays show that is was the correct decision. City are down to 10 and Chelsea's title bid is boosted further. Madness.

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea

All of a sudden, Chelsea are buzzing, the dark blue all over the sky of City. Another corner only needs a touch to provide the equaliser, but it goes begging. Eni Aluko is running at the defence, trying to provide the spark. You feel this game has more goals in it.

GOAL

Manchester City 2-1 Chelsea - Gilly Flaherty

Game on! Gilly Flaherty's bullet header gives Chelsea a glimmer of hope. With 20 minutes to go, one more goal for Chelsea will return them to the top of the WSL. Birmingham are in the same position, while Liverpool are the team that is top of the lot. What an amazing finish to the season.

Manchester City 2-0 Chelsea

Sue Smith

Former England forward

"Chelsea train maximum three times a week, whereas Manchester City are full-time. And you can see that clearly whenever City get on the ball, with the precision of their passing and the quality of their movement. I'd love to see a time when all WSL teams go professional - that'll improve the standard even more."

GOAL

Liverpool 3-0 Bristol Academy - Fara Williams

Liverpool can do no more. Fara Williams does the business from the penalty spot after Natasha Dowie was fouled by Jemma Rose. They had to win their game and that is what they are doing. It seems that only Birmingham can stop them now.

Ah, I have an answer. There are two versions of the trophy, one in the Midlands and one in the North West. That version is currently on the back of a motorbike, heading from Manchester to Widnes.

Now then, the question on everyone's lips. Where is the trophy? Is there three different versions? Is it in a helicopter?

Sue Smith

Former England forward

"Manchester City's game plan seems just right at this moment in time. They keep hitting Chelsea on the counter-attack with all their quick players. The problem for Chelsea now is they have to go for it, but they're leaving massive gaps at the back. And Man City are finding all those spaces."

Brynley in Molesey: Real shame that Chelsea are down by two. I thought this would be Chelsea's men and women's year but clearly that isn't going to happen...

Sulaiman from London: Matt Beard, the Liverpool coach, clearly told his players not to let this chance slip in the half-time team talk. Let's see if they can hold their nerve and show the men how it's done.

Manchester City 2-0 Chelsea

Half an hour to go in the WSL season. Chelsea need to find two goals, Birmingham one. Liverpool need everything to stay as it is.

Manchester City 2-0 Chelsea

It just doesn't look to be happening for Chelsea. If anything, Manchester City look more likely to add to their tally. As it stands, Liverpool and Chelsea have 26 points, with Liverpool's goal difference two better. Birmingham have 25 points, with a goal difference the same as Chelsea's.

GOAL

Liverpool 2-0 Bristol Academy - Lucy Bronze

The outsiders are pulling away. Liverpool are 2-0 up on Bristol Academy, a great run down the right from Lucy Bronze somehow ending with the ball in the back of the net. Liverpool are top, Birmingham need only a winner to take their place and Chelsea look to be toast.

Andy in Worcester: Great to see such an exciting end to the season - without their injuries Notts County would have been challenging. Watch them go next year!

GOAL

Liverpool 1-0 Bristol Academy - Natasha Dowie

Now then, is this the goal that will take the title to Liverpool? The defending champions are ahead against Bristol, Natasha Dowie rolling the ball into an empty net to finally put the Reds ahead. As it stands, Liverpool are top of the WSL. Chelsea have to find something against Manchester City.

GOAL

Birmingham 2-2 Notts County - Hannah Keryakoplis

Hannah Keryakoplis scores Birmingham's second, as the ball ricochets to her and she places her effort past Carly Telford. The Blues are back on level terms and, with Chelsea losing, a winner would hand them the title.

Manchester City 2-0 Chelsea

Sue Smith

Former England forward

"I think manager Emma Hayes probably told Chelsea exactly what she thought of them at half-time. They were out very early for this second half - that's a sign of intent. It will be interesting to see how Chelsea start this half."

Manchester City 2-0 Chelsea

Replays of that penalty appeal show that the ball did bounce up to hit the hand of Emma Lipman, but there's not much the City player could have done. Chelsea have been camped in the City half, but are almost caught by a Toni Duggan counter.
