The battle for the Champions League places after Matchday 7

The battle for the Champions League is tight with nearly all of the FA WSL  sides still in it except Birmingham and Bristol who will fight to avoid relegation.

We are halfway through the season and Chelsea Ladies are in pole position to qualify for the Champions League 2016/07 season.  They are five points ahead of Arsenal and Sunderland, six points ahead of Notts County. They are also eight and nine points ahead of Liverpool and Manchester City, but those two teams have a game in hand and the winner of that game will be back in the mix for the runner-up place.

The table looks like this :

  1. Chelsea 17 pts + 10
  2. Arsenal 12 pts + 4
  3. Sunderland 12 pts 0
  4. Notts County 11 pts + 4
  5. Liverpool 9 pts +1
  6. Man City 8 pts 0

Goal difference might be crucial as it was last year, with Liverpool and Chelsea finishing level on points and Liverpool winning the title with a better goal difference. All the teams ranked second to sixth cannot afford to drop any point, if they want to compete in the top European club competition next season.
