The Manchester United WSL title charge following 6-0 win over Liverpool illustrates how 2022/23 has been an excellent season for Manchester United WFC. Following a dominant win over their bitter rivals Liverpool on Sunday, United could be lining up for title charge.
They’re just three points behind the team in first – Chelsea – and United also have a game in hand. Should they win that game, they’ll leapfrog the Blues, as they also have superior goal difference.
Manchester United WFC did not join the Women’s Super League until 2019 – as such, they have yet to pick up the league title. This year could well be a groundbreaking season for Women’s Football at Manchester United.
The Red Devils’ top scorer, Alessia Russo, found herself on the scoresheet in the game against Liverpool. Amongst the other goal scorers were Lucia Garcia, Hayley Ladd, Martha Thomas and Rachel Williams.
United have only lost one game in the WSL so far this season. They were beaten 3-1 by Chelsea, with Russo scoring their only goal of the game.
In their next match, United will take on Reading. The Royals are currently tenth in the league, one place below Liverpool – the team that the Red Devils just demolished by six goals to nothing.
Can Manchester United WFC make history and win the WSL for the first time? They still have to contend with a quality Arsenal outfit led by manager Jonas Eidevall plus Emma Hayes’ top quality Chelsea side with Man City still a potential thorn in United’s side too.
A first WSL title for Manchester United – it seems eminently possible.
