Erin Cuthbert believes a fifth consecutive Women's Super League title triumph would be 'the sweetest yet' for Chelsea.

The finale of our WSL campaign takes us to Old Trafford to face Manchester United. Secure victory – and match or better Manchester City's result against Aston Villa – and a fifth consecutive title is guaranteed.

It has been a rollercoaster campaign for the Blues, and we only moved back into top spot on Wednesday night after defeating Tottenham Hotspur. Cuthbert believes our position heading into the final day is testament to the character of our squad.

‘We started a bit of a domino effect when we went out the different competitions, but when you get the second chance – which we have done with the title – then you have a renewed energy, a renewed hunger and desire,’ said Cuthbert.

‘We will give it everything. The fact we’re still in it says a lot about this group. We’ve had leaders who have had to step up and we’ve been missing big characters - and the value they add on and off the pitch.

‘If we do it, it would be the sweetest title yet.’

Cuthbert is relishing the opportunity to end Emma Hayes' 12-year tenure with another league trophy. And to add another WSL medal to her own collection, which currently stands at five.

‘We’re really looking forward to it,’ said the Scottish international. ‘These are the games you want to be involved in as a professional footballer. You work so hard every day and these are the days you work for – it’s why you get out of bed in the morning.’

The pressure of reclaiming the title, Cuthbert insists, won’t affect the players against United and our midfielder has backed the squad to give it everything they have got to get the job done.

‘This is a position we’ve been in before,’ added Cuthbert. ‘We know the pressure and what it feels like. I want to look around the dressing room and know that everybody gave their best no matter what happens. We go out there and leave absolutely nothing on the pitch.’

Cuthbert expects the Blues to be in for a difficult afternoon at Old Trafford as United return to league action after winning a first major trophy - the Women's FA Cup - last weekend.

‘It is a tough place to go and they are not going to want the title to be won on their patch,’ said Cuthbert. ‘They will be doing everything they can, especially coming off the back of a FA Cup final win.

'They will be very aggressive like they were at their place when we played them in the semi-final. It’s going to be a tough game, so we have to make sure we show up and give it absolutely everything.’
