Women's Super League: West Ham United 1-2 Chelsea

Ji So-Yun scored a brilliant long-range goal as Chelsea came from behind to beat West Ham United and go top of the Women's Super League table.

Adriana Leon gave West Ham a surprise lead, slotting in with her first touch after coming on as a substitute.

Sophie Ingle then side-footed into the top corner following Ji's pass to level for the visitors.

Ji completed the turnaround by smashing in from 20 yards two minutes later, before Drew Spence made it 3-1 late on.

Victory lifted Chelsea above Manchester City to the top of the table after their unbeaten start was ended by Arsenal earlier on Sunday.
