Chelsea's Erin Cuthbert in action against Hacken's Filippa CurmarkCuthbert has scored four goals in all competitions for Chelsea this season

Erin Cuthbert scored twice to help Chelsea move top of their Champions League group with a 3-1 victory over Hacken.

Sam Kerr opened the scoring after 14 minutes in Gothenburg, but the two sides entered the break level after Clarissa Larisey's bullet header ended a rapid Hacken counter-attack.

The Swedish side were unbeaten heading into Wednesday's game and a win would have seen them secure a place in the quarter-finals.

However, their hopes quickly faded when Cuthbert fired home two low strikes in the space of 13 minutes as Emma Hayes' side ended their last game of 2023 on a high.

In Wednesday's other Group D match, Paris FC inflicted a 1-0 defeat on Real Madrid to end the Spanish team's chances of qualifying.
