Match Preview: Chelsea Ladies v Liverpool Ladies

Chelsea Ladies face Liverpool Ladies at Saturday lunchtime in the biggest fixture yet for both sides.

Recent Form

Chelsea are top of the league with an excellent goal difference after consecutive 6-0 thrashings of Bristol City Women and Sunderland Ladies respectively. They won the Spring Series and are strong contenders to win the first Women’s Super League in the winter calendar.

Liverpool Ladies won their first game of the season, a Merseyside Derby, 2-0 against Everton Ladies. However, they are looking to bounce back from a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Reading Women. Facing an inform Chelsea Ladies side is probably not the fixture they would have chosen.

Previous Meetings

Chelsea Ladies annihilated Liverpool Ladies 7-0 when the sides met in the Spring Series. Emma Hayes’ side also beat Liverpool both times during last season’s Women’s Super League 1 campaign.

Prediction

Chelsea are in fantastic form and I think they will maintain their fine start against Liverpool. However with Liverpool looking for a positive result, Chelsea won’t have it all their own way. My prediction is Chelsea Ladies 4-1 Liverpool Ladies.

Chelsea Ladies v Liverpool Ladies will be live on BT Sport 1 (KO 12:30) and on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra.
