BIRMINGHAM, England, May 18 (Reuters) – Manchester City beat Aston Villa 2-1 on the final day of the Women’s Super League season but it was not enough to secure the title as Chelsea, who face Manchester United with defeated 6–0 at Old Trafford, sent them to the trophy on goal difference

Australian striker Mary Fowler opened the scoring for City, but when Chelsea scored four goals in the first half at Manchester United, City came out of the break knowing they would need a six-goal haul on goal difference to clinch the title .

Rachel Daly leveled for Villa in the 68th minute, but Lauren Hemp put City back ahead eleven minutes later and rushed to get the game going again in a vain attempt to overtake Chelsea.

In London, striker Viviane Miedema came off the bench to score one goal and set up another in her last match for Arsenal as they beat Brighton & Hove Albion 5–0 to finish third with 50 points.

Liverpool’s strong season was rewarded with a fourth-place finish as they won 4-0 at Leicester City, while their Merseyside rivals Everton finished with a 4-0 thumping of relegated Bristol City to finish in eighth place.
