Looking ahead in women’s football!

Womens Super League

With the Women’s Super League heating up, the players have the next week to prepare for their upcoming matches.

Manchester City are looking strong in their current leading position but last year’s league winners, Chelsea are not far behind as they sit in second place on sixteen points, just one win shy of the top spot.

There will be plenty of action to keep an eye out for next week as Yeovil Town prepare to take on Birmingham City on Friday the 26th, a match which could prove vital for City as a win could see them creep up into fourth place.

With Yeovil having not put a point on the board yet this season, they will be looking to find their first win going into the end of the month.

Liverpool will then take on Bristol City, and both teams are going to be fighting for the three points, with Liverpool having not brought any new players in during the transfer window, they now have this final week to be on the search for some new fuel to add to their squad.

Bristol on the other hand, have brought in midfielder Kylie Nolan from Cardiff City on a short-term deal; she made her debut against Everton a couple of weeks ago.

League leaders, Manchester City will take on Sunderland next week, where a win could see them potentially go five points clear should Chelsea lose out at Everton, who will play the day after.

Arsenal are eyeing up third place as they come head to head with Reading next Sunday, who have also not been on bad form this season so far as they have two wins and two draws out of five.

In other news, members of the WSL1 who are valuable players in the England squad, could see themselves with a new manager this week as Phil Neville is set to take on the role, following the dismissal of Mark Sampson in September last year.

England currently sit third in the world ranking so no doubt if Neville gets the job, he will be keen to ensure a continuously positive performance from the England ladies as they look ahead to the 2019 World Cup in France.

It’s been a fantastic season so far and there is plenty to look out for in the coming weeks so don’t miss a thing and keep yourself up to date with the all latest from women’s football – the best is yet to come!
