Chelsea Women will be looking to bounce back from their recent UEFA Champions League defeat to Barcelona when they take on Liverpool Women in the Women’s Super League match on Wednesday. Despite losing to Barcelona, Chelsea Women put up a courageous performance at Camp Nou, and they will now return to domestic action to keep the WSL title fight alive.

The league title is still in Chelsea Women’s hands, with seven points separating them from league leaders Manchester United, who have played three games more. The Blues have not suffered a defeat in their last 22 home league games, with 21 wins and one draw since losing to Brighton & Hove Albion in February 2022. With such an impressive home record, Chelsea Women is expected to come out on top with a victory over Liverpool Women.

Liverpool Women has struggled on the road this season, with four draws and five losses in their nine away league games, making their hopes of winning against Chelsea Women very slim.

However, Liverpool Women has drawn inspiration from their opening day win over Chelsea Women earlier this season, where they narrowly claimed a 2-1 victory. Liverpool Women manager Matt Beard will be seeking to achieve another victory against Chelsea Women to improve his side’s position in the table.

Meanwhile, Liverpool Women’s Melissa Lawley is set to undergo surgery on a hip issue and will be sidelined for six months.

In conclusion, Chelsea Women has a lot of motivation to get a result against Liverpool Women, and they will be looking to secure a victory to keep their title hopes alive. Considering Liverpool Women’s struggles on the road, the Blues are favored to clinch a win, and the final scoreline could be Chelsea Women 3-0 Liverpool Women.
