Arsenal Beat Chelsea Late in Extra-time to Retain Conti Cup

Stina Blackstenius scored late in extra-time as Arsenal beat Chelsea 1-0 to win the Conti Cup for a second successive year.

Play stopped for seven minutes in stoppage-time of regulation time after Frida Maanum collapsed off the ball, but she is now in a stable condition, conscious and talking.

Arsenal were able to overcome this adversity and struck in the 116th minute as Blackstenius redeemed herself after missing a good chance earlier in extra-time to seal a record seventh Conti Cup win for the Gunners.

Chelsea could not keep up with Arsenal, who beat them 3-1 in last season's final, in what was their eighth game in March and the defeat ends their chances of winning the quadruple in Emma Hayes' final season in charge.

Tensions boiled over at the end of the game as Arsenal boss Jonas Eidevall and Hayes clashed, bringing this managerial rivalry to an end with a bitter taste.
