Emma Hayes fired a warning to Manchester City ahead of the finale of the Women’s Super League next weekend as she told Chelsea supporters on Sunday night: ‘It’s not f*****g over.’

Hayes claimed on Wednesday evening that the WSL title race was ‘done’ after Chelsea were beaten 4-3 by Liverpool.

However, WSL leaders City, who are looking to win their first league title since 2016, slipped up against Arsenal on Sunday afternoon as two late goals sealed a 2-1 win for Jonas Eidevall’s side.

Chelsea then demolished Bristol City 8-0 on Sunday evening to move three points behind City, who have played one game more.

Hayes’ side will pull level on points with City if they beat Tottenham on Wednesday evening, which would then set up a dramatic final day in the WSL next Saturday.

Chelsea face a tough test away to Manchester United, while City play away to Aston Villa.

Hayes was given a rousing send-off by Chelsea supporters in her final game at Kingsmeadow on Sunday night and in her speech to fans the 47-year-old, who was accompanied on the pitch by her five-year-old son, Harry, did not hold back.

‘Let me be clear, let me be clear… it’s not f*****g over,’ Hayes said, which was met with wild cheers from supporters.

‘There is no time for sentimentality. All work drinks are cancelled. There is a title to be won.’

Hayes, who is leaving Chelsea at the end of the season to become the head coach of the United States Women’s national side, added: ‘I’ve been here 12 years, but this group of players taught me something so special this week, you never, ever give up and this is what it means to be Chelsea.

‘So before I go, guess what, we need to win at Tottenham, so you better buy tickets. We need every one of you if we stand a chance of winning the title.’

In a separate interview with Sky Sports, Hayes said: ‘It’s emotional. I’ve got a lot going on thinking about it. It’s tough. I’ve spent a third of my life doing this.

‘This has been my home, my family. My son’s been born here. I’ve experienced my dad dying in the last year. This is a club that has been my entire heart.

‘It’s felt strange for me in the last couple of months, on a number of levels, but I am grateful. I look out tonight and see the fans and feel the love. I feel for the love for the team – and that’s all I’ve ever wanted.

‘These are my people, these are my community. I’d go to war for them. I wouldn’t change a single thing. I’m grateful to have been given the honour to be the manager of this team.’
