Eni Aluko scored twice as Chelsea hit Yeovil for six in the Women’s Super League leaders Chelsea on Sunday.
Just 11 days on from speaking before a Digital, Culture, Media and Sport committee hearing regarding the Football Association’s handling of her complaints against former England boss Mark Sampson, Aluko scored the second and sixth goals of the rout.
There were also two goals apiece for Crystal Dunn and Karen Carney in a victory that extended Chelsea’s 100 per cent start in the league to a fourth win.
Also on 12 points are Manchester City, who scored twice in stoppage time to claim a dramatic 3-1 victory over Birmingham.

The visitors took the lead in the sixth minute when a superb strike from Lucy Quinn punished sloppy play at the back from City.
Izzy Christiansen equalised with a penalty in the 76th minute and Birmingham had Kerys Harrop sent off two minutes later.
Christiansen then headed the home side in front in the first minute of time added on, and in the eighth, Jen Beattie added City’s second spot-kick to wrap up the win.
Arsenal are up to fourth after they triumphed 2-0 at Everton, Vivianne Miedema and Beth Mead getting on the scoresheet in what was the visitors’ first match since the departure of manager Pedro Martinez Losa.
