Our first match of the season was already one of the biggest upsets in the Women’s Super League, when recently promoted outfit Liverpool beat Chelsea 2-1 and made many start to question whether the Blues would be able to reclaim the title.
That episode was quickly proven to be an outlier. Chelsea sit atop the WSL table despite the referee’s best effort to hand it to Arsenal last weekend, and our great form at home should be a good enough basis to dispatch Liverpool today.
