Women's Super League: Fairytale farewell for Chelsea's 'pivotal' captain Magdalena Eriksson

It is a moment that comes rarely for defenders so when Eriksson poked in Sam Kerr's header for Chelsea's second goal shortly before half-time, she opened her arms and ran towards the stands, welcoming a roar of adoration from the Blues faithful at Kingsmeadow.

"I love you guys," Eriksson said to them afterwards as she, alongside partner and forward Pernille Harder, were honoured in a presentation.

The 29-year-old has made 184 appearances since joining from Linkopings in 2017 and has been a key figure in the driving force behind Chelsea's three successive WSL titles.
