Chelsea and Manchester City face off today in the biggest game of the Women’s Super League season so far.

Emma Hayes’ side were awarded the title last season on a points-per-game basis due to the coronavirus pandemic despite the campaign ending with Man City above them as they had played one game more.

Will Gareth Taylor’s side exact revenge today?

Chelsea v Manchester City

Someone’s undefeated record could go today. Chelsea did not lose at all last season so they have not been beaten in well over a year. Could this afternoon be the end of a sensational run?

12 min: Sam Kerr chases a loose ball but Steph Houghton does well to nod back to Roebuck.
