Aluko nears England exit, in advanced talks with PSG - FCNaija

Eniola Aluko was on target as Chelsea moved within just one point of the Women's Super League One title with two games to go following Saturday's 2-1 win over Sunderland soon after rivals Manchester City lost.

Victory ensured that Chelsea can secure a league and cup double if they avoid defeat at Bristol City on Tuesday.

Fran Kirby's deflected strike in the first-half and Aluko's close-range finish after the break gave Emma Hayes's side a two-goal lead.

Sunderland pulled one back through Keira Ramshaw's late, crisp finish off the post, but defeat kept them ninth.

Aluko and her team-mates who beat Bristol City 6-0 on the season's opening weekend in the reverse fixture are bidding to reclaim the title they first won in 2015.

Saturday's win over the Lady Black Cats on a wet night at Kingsmeadow put them six points clear of City, whose defeat at Arsenal was their second in a row since going above Chelsea on goal difference on 3 May.
