4. Pernille Harder and Sam Kerr combine to seal FA Cup victory at Wembley

Date: May 14, 2023

There's nothing like bringing back a piece of silverware to west London from Wembley. In English domestic football, little compares. In front of over 77,000 people, Emma Hayes' side overcame a below par display to overcome a hungry Manchester United side. United challenged, but it was the combination of two world-class talents that proved to be all the difference.

It's difficult to beat coming out on top in front of that many people in women's football. With the largest crowd in Women's FA Cup final history, the Blues showed why they are the queens of the competition.

Eve Perisset, Guro Reiten, Pernille Harder, Kerr---goal. Sure, the cross from the Dane was brilliant and the finish matched it, but what transpired after made it that much more memorable. The backflip. The grab of the badge. Kerr did not hold back in the moments that followed her finish past Mary Earps. In what was a career in blue that was made up of a whole lot of injuries, Harder's assist sums up the impact she had when healthy in a Chelsea shirt---undeniably positive.
