England plays as a striker for Chelsea who overturned a 2-1 first leg deficit by beating Bayern Munich 4-1 on Sunday.

The 5-3 aggregate win put them in the Champions League final against Barcelona in Gothenburg on May 16.

They then won 2-0 at Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday to go two points clear at the top of the Women’s Super League which concludes on Sunday.

If they beat Reading, they will retain their title.

England, who has scored 12 goals this season and hopes to play for Great Britain at this summer’s Olympics, was an unused substitute against Bayern then played 90 minutes at Spurs.

Meanwhile, Stones helped Manchester City beat Paris St Germain 2-0 on Tuesday to record a 4-1 aggregate semi-final victory.

The Thurlstone man played 90 minutes in both legs.

They will now play Chelsea in the final on May 29 which is due to be in Istanbul.

City can secure the Premier League title with victory over Chelsea tomorrow.

Stones has been serving a ban in domestic games after being sent off at Aston Villa last month, which meant he missed the League Cup final victory.

He has played a key role for City this season, earning a place back in the England squad ahead of this summer’s European Championships.
