Hayes 'over the moon' as Kirby returns for Women's FA Cup final

Chelsea manager Emma Hayes says she is "over the moon" as Fran Kirby returns to contention for the Women's FA Cup final against Man City on Sunday.

Around a month ago, it was announced Kirby would be ruled out for an indefinite amount of time due to injury and fatigue concerns that were being investigated by Chelsea, having taken various periods out over the last few seasons due to health issues.

However, Hayes revealed in her pre-match press conference that Kirby will be involved in the squad for Sunday's match at Wembley - which is set to break the record for the highest attendance at a Women's FA Cup final - having been involved in training this week and heaped praise on the England forward.

"I don't want to put any pressure on her because I love that kid and she's been through a lot, but it looked like she hadn't even been away - she looked that good in training," Hayes said
