Kirby gave Chelsea an early lead and Carr finished an out-of-class arsenal After winning the Women’s Super League and the League Cup last season, he clinched the domestic treble in the second half of the double.
Hayes tasted what she called “a day to be proud of as Chelsea’s manager” and praised England’s international Kirby and Australian striker Carr.
“I thought it was Fran’s best match in a Chelsea shirt. She ran the show,” Hayes said. “She got on the ball and was a threat throughout the game and was really a handful.”
Hayes noted the contribution of the two-goal car and added: As far as I am concerned, she is the best striker in the world.
“She is courageous and confident. You can do that after you get off the plane from Australia on Thursday.
“they [Kirby and Kerr] Two of the many characters in this dressing room that deserve attention in today’s performance. “
Hayes admitted that he was very confident in his last chance to enter Wembley’s showpiece against Arsenal, who won the FA Cup 14 times.
“I saw it coming,” she said. “I look at the standards every day. Today I thought it was like a machine from start to finish.
“True credit must be given not only to the player, but also to the staff in the back room.
“It’s been in the treble since last year and I didn’t really believe it would produce different results.
“The self-confidence and calm nature of our dressing room was incredible before the match.
“I know everyone is talking a lot about the first day of the season [when Arsenal beat Chelsea in the Women’s Super League].. I won today. I can’t read it anymore. “
Arsenal coach Jonas Ideval was left to think of a disappointing show from his side that didn’t provide quality commensurate with their efforts.
Arsenal improved after the break, and Vivian Midema had a few chances, but rarely threatened Chelsea’s well-organized defense.
“In this game, we’re doing better in the second half, but we had the same problem of losing the ball at a very bad time,” Eidevall said.
“At that moment, Chelsea could expose us to a counterattack.
“If they have the time and space to compete against you, they are world-class players and you can’t let Chelsea do it over and over and expect good results.
“It wasn’t an effort to make the mistake. The players tried to do everything on the pitch, but the quality for us as a team wasn’t there today.”
Chelsea opened the scoring three minutes later when Arsenal let go of the ball and Kirby hit home from the edge of the penalty area.
The two goals in the second half of the car ensured that there was no way back to Chelsea.
The first match was 57 minutes past Arsenal defender Lotte Uben Moy and keeper Manuela Zinsburger.
Her second 77 minutes came via the subtle subsidence of Zinsberger.
