WOMENS SUPER LEAGUE: Week Five PREVIEW

The WSL kicks off once more on Sunday with two teams still protecting their 100% starts to the 2020/21 campaign.

Here’s a preview of the fixtures…

West Ham United v Manchester United 18/10 12.30pm

West Ham will go into this one as huge underdogs having earned just one point from their opening four matches. Despite their home advantage the Irons will have it all to do if they are to stop a star studded Man Utd side looking upwards in the table after three consecutive wins.

The visitors will be looking to last weeks match winner Millie Turner to provide the inspiration once more as they look to close the gap on the top of the table.

Everton v Brighton & Hove Albion 18/10 13.00pm

The Toffees are one of the sides looking to maintain their 100% record when they welcome Brighton to Walton Hall Park.

Star player Lucy Graham has bagged four goals so far this term and will be hoping to add to her tally this weekend against a mid-table Brighton side.

Bristol City v Birmingham 18/10 14.00pm

Bristol City need to use home advantage to kick start their season having lost four games on the bounce and are left bereft at the bottom of the table without a point.

Birmingham on the other hand have made a reasonably strong start to the season and sit eighth with four points.

Reading v Manchester City 18/10 14.00pm

Despite the early season favouritism, City haven’t made the most auspicious of starts to the 2020/21 season and sit just one point above Sunday’s hosts.

This clash at the Madjesdki Stadium promises to be a tigh affair going off the early season form.

City will be hopeful the likes of Rose Lavelle, Georgia Stanway and Demi Stokes can re-find their form and get their title challenge back on track.

Arsenal v Tottenham 18/10 14.30pm

A huge London derby rounds off the WSL action on Sunday as the Gunners look to continue their perfect start to the season at Meadow Park.

Spurs go into the match in need of some positivity after a disappointing start sees them sit ninth after the opening four rounds of fixtures.

Arsenal boast the top two goal scorers in the division with Vivianne Miedema sitting top on seven and Jill Roord in the wings just one goal behind.

Womens super league weekend preview

The Women’s Super League has been awash with action across its opening three weekends with Arsenal and Everton setting the early pace with their perfect records.

Here’s your preview for the fourth round of matches including the huge clash between two teams full of world stars, Chelsea and Manchester City.

Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United 10/10 12.30pm

Spurs go in search of their first win of the season as they host Manchester United at the Hive Stadium to get the weekend’s fixtures underway at 12.30pm on Saturday.

Having won their previous two league matches, United were well beaten by Championship side Liverpool in their opening Continental Tyres Cup match midweek and will be looking to bounce back with a win.

Brighton v Arsenal 11/10 12.30pm

Sunday’s early kick off sees seventh place Brighton welcome table topping Arsenal to the Broadfield Stadium in what looks to be a difficult task for the south coast club.

The Gunners have started the 2020/21 season in scintillating form and currently occupy the top three goal scorers in the league with Dutch midfielder Jill Roord setting the pace with six goals in the first three games.

Everton v West Ham 11/10 13.00pm

Everton are the only other side with a 100% record, not unlike the men’s side, and will be hopeful of continuing in the same vein at Walton Hall Park.

New signing’s Claire Emslie and Hayley Raso have spearheaded the Toffee’s strong start with two goals apiece. Whilst The Hammers need to recapture their form after back to back losses in the Super League.

Reading v Birmingham City 11/10 14.00pm

The Royals will be hoping for home advantage as they look to move up the table following an improvement in their performances of late leading to consecutive wins and a well earned place in sixth position.

For Birmingham City, manager Carla Ward knows her side need a victory sooner rather than later following a dismal start to their season has seen the midlands club lose all three of their league fixtures.

Chelsea v Manchester City 11/10 14.30pm

Perhaps the clash of the weekend as the defending champions Chelsea host the much fancied Man City at Kingsmeadow to round off the weekends action. Both sides have taken seven points from the opening three matches and will be hopeful of cutting the gap to the leaders.

Two teams brimmed full of star quality, Chelsea, managed by Emma Hayes, will look to the likes of Fran Kirby, Magdalena Eriksson and new arrival Pernille Harder to be pivotal to the home sides chances.

For Man City boss Gareth Taylor, he will be looking towards star signing Rose Lavelle to fire them to victory. Forward Georgia Stanway is the sides leading scorer this term with two goals from the first three games.
