The result comes on the heels of Eastern losing 7-0 to Guangzhou Evergrande last week, and is a truly historic one, with Chan writing her name in the history books.

Chan led Eastern to the Hong Kong Premier League championship in 2016, and will now hope to guide the club to victory when they face Suwon Bluewings in their next AFC Champions League fixture.
