The hosts go into the season finale off the back of a 1-0 victory at Birmingham City last weekend, a result that ensures they have won each of their last 10 games in all competitions, conceding just three times across that spell.
As for United, last Sunday’s 3-0 triumph over West Ham was the perfect way to build some further momentum ahead of this weekend’s visit south. It’s now six unbeaten for Skinner’s side in the competition, who have also not conceded in any of our last three outings.
The Reds will be hoping to record a first win in the fixture’s history when we visit the capital this weekend. Chelsea have got the better of five of the six clashes to date, the first coming back in 2019, with a 1-1 draw on the opening day of last season’s WSL the exception, as Leah Galton got on the scoresheet for United. In 2021/22, we have gone head-to-head twice already, with Hayes’s team triumphing 6-1 at Leigh Sports Village early on in the league campaign and 3-1 in February’s Continental League Cup semi-final at Kingsmeadow.
