WSL season finale: Hayes relaxed as Chelsea bid to hold off Arsenal

Hayes pleased with Chelsea’s effort in transitional season‘How many teams would have coped with that and be there?’Emma Hayes has said she is pleased Chelsea remained competitive this season despite having a squad in transition as she prepared for the Women’s Super League title to be decided on Sunday.“We’re in a healthy place,” said the manager, who will say goodbye to the long-serving Ji So-yun, Jonna Andersson and Drew Spence at the end of the campaign. “I think we had an ageing squad, we’ve had to try and address that balance and to compete while you’re transitioning. That’s really tough. As a coach it’s why I’m pleased we’re in the position to compete, because that’s the hardest thing to do, trust me, when you’re transitioning ages.”
