Chelsea manager Emma Hayes Speaking to BBC Sport about the win:"We have to work hard for every game in this league, you have to earn it. The league, I have been saying all year is getting more and more competitive. It's a great product because games are tight, and Tottenham on the back on a cup final put in a great effort especially second half. I'm really happy with the performance, especially in the first half but we might have to do a little shooting practice this week.

On putting Lauren James during the second half:"It's been a long season, players across the league have put in great shifts over a period of time and it's a slog this time of the year so we need the whole bench no matter who starts, we are always going to need the whole bench."

On Maiko Hamano:"I'm not afraid to put young players in and we see players for the future, so I'm really happy to see Maiko get on. She's in on merit, she's been outstanding in training. She's been clinical, getting goals in training. It doesn't matter who you are you still have to produce those performances and Maiko for me has been scoring goals like that all week in training."

On if the title race odds are in Chelsea's favour:"I think we have the tougher of the two games. We have to go to Old Trafford and it's a fitting finale for me, being my final game. As I said to the players if someone gives you a second chance in life, make sure you don't need a third one. We're in the position we want to be in, and we'll give it everything on Saturday no matter what."

On if she is emotionally ready to say goodbye to Chelsea: "I won't swear but I'm absolutely knackered."
