Another weekend of WSL action is almost upon us. Who will come out on top when Manchester United face Everton at home in one of the biggest games of an important weekend in the WSL?
United are currently top of the WSL, though only just – they are only ahead of the team in second, Chelsea, on goal difference. United will be looking to widen the gap when they play Everton – however, the Toffees are no pushovers.
Everton are fifth in the league, having won their last three games in the division. Despite this, when they played the Red Devils earlier in the season, it was United who emerged victorious by a score of 3-0 away from home.
Additionally, Chelsea will take on local rivals Spurs at the weekend. While the Blues are on the up, it has been a tough season for Tottenham – they’ve lost all of their last five WSL games.
It’s not the only London derby to be played at the weekend – alongside this, Arsenal will take on West Ham United. Arsenal are just three points behind Manchester United and will be looking to make up the ground. West Ham, on the other hand, are currently marooned in mid table, losing 3-0 to Everton in their last outing.
Manchester City will play Leicester in their next game, which should be a comfortable three points for the Citizens. Leicester had lost all of their WSL games this season until their previous fixture, where they beat Brighton 3-0.
Elsewhere in the WSL, Liverpool will take on Reading in a relegation scrap, while Aston Villa will play Brighton.
