Chelsea Women vs Leicester Women Match Preview

Chelsea Women was eliminated in the Champions League semi-finals by Barcelona, but they’ve bounced back with two consecutive league victories against Merseyside clubs. They came from behind to defeat Liverpool 2-1 before crushing Everton 7-0 on Sunday, extending their unbeaten home league run to 24 games.

In the first half of their match against Everton, Guro Reiten, Sam Kerr, Pernille Harder, Sophie Ingle, and Jessie Fleming all found the net in a dominant display. Harder scored her second goal of the game in the 81st minute, and Erin Cuthbert rounded off the scoring in stoppage time.

Chelsea’s comprehensive victory propelled them to second place, four points behind leaders Manchester United with two games in hand. This ensures they control their own fate with four games remaining in the season.

After consecutive wins, Leicester Women fell to a narrow defeat against Arsenal, despite putting up a spirited performance. Although Janina Leitzig saved Katie McCabe’s seventh-minute spot-kick, Leicester’s resistance was eventually broken just after the hour-mark when Frida Maanum scored the only goal of the game, condemning the Foxes to a 1-0 loss.

With three games left in the 2022-23 campaign, Willie Kirk’s squad are two points clear of Reading, who are currently bottom of the league, with one game in hand. Leicester Women have lost eight of their nine away league matches this season and possess the second-worst away record in the top flight.

Worryingly, the Foxes have lost their last three competitive encounters with Chelsea by a combined 24-0 scoreline, highlighting the tough test that awaits them on Wednesday.
