Drew Spence has stated that their midweek League Cup win was a great opportunity for Chelsea Women in having kept their high standards up before adding they are focused on going all the way at the tournament.
The Blues continued their superb form in the cup competition with a 7-0 demolition of Yeovil Town at Kingsmeadow on Wednesday that sees them as Group One south winners with a game to spare. After their final group match against Tottenham Hotspur next week, Chelsea Women are guaranteed a home tie against one of the second-placed teams in the quarterfinals scheduled to be played starting January next year.
The smiting of Yeovil was the biggest winning margin for the Blues so far this season, with Spence, as well as Bethany England, netting a brace, while Adelina Engman, Erin Cuthbert and an own goal rounded off a remarkable night at Kingsmeadow and the London-born Spence, who will mark the 10th year anniversary of her senior debut with the club next month, has expressed his delight at the near-flawless display of Emma Hayes’ side.
“We rotated the squad and as well as being pleased with my goals, I was also pleased with our performance,” said the twice-capped England midfielder.
“I think all the girls that came in for the game have all worked hard every week and obviously not everyone can play every game, so it was nice for them to play and they did us well.”
Spence then added that the Yeovil Town match was a perfect opportunity for them to keep their usual standards of professionalism before adding that they are determined to win the League Cup.
“We wanted to keep up our high standards, going from a good win in the league on Sunday to a cup competition, and we just want to keep going from there,” added Spence.
“We take every competition seriously. We haven’t won this trophy yet, it’s something we want to win, so we’re happy we’re in the quarter-finals now.”
