FA WSL 1 Matchday 1 preview

Liverpool 1 Sunderland 2

Arsenal v Bristol P-P

Birmingham v Manchester City

An early test of the credentials for both teams. Their first competitive games ended up with a win, against Liverpool for the Blues and against the Belles for the Citizens funnily enough on the same scoreline. The big question is how quickly the City squad has gelled as a team and can they produce quality football straight from the start of the season. Blues will be without Chelsea Weston on a long term injury and Karen Carney still suspended after her incident with Natalia Sanchon while City will miss Abbie McManus who was sent off for violent conduct against Chelsea in the final League game was season.

Notts County v Chelsea Ladies

Another game with two teams expecting to compete for a top two place. Both side have recruited well during the winter and have won their FA Women’s Cup tie last week-end. As they have big ambitions, this another game where loosing is not a real option if they want to win the title.

As a reminder, the previous FA WSL champions were crowned three times with only two defeats and the other time with an unbeaten side.

We actually might see two draws this Sunday and Sunderland might still be top of the League by Sunday evening.
