The FA Women’s Super League returned last weekend bigger and better as 12 clubs fight it out across the nine-month campaign. The expanded top-flight welcomes the arrival of Tottenham and Manchester United, but will they be competing for glory in their debut seasons come May.
Second week of FA WSL fixtures: here’s a look at the upcoming fixtures.
Everton LFC – Bristol City WFC
Everton have the upper hand between the two teams following opening weekend, with three points on the board thanks to a win away to Birmingham City. Bristol were held at home to a 0-0 draw by an impressive Brighton side.
Reading Women VS Manchester City Women
Both sides will be looking to keep the momentum going when they go head to head at Adams Park on Sunday. The last time Reading beat City was back in the 2017/18 season, where goals from Allen and Pearce were enough to see them steal three points away from home.
Brighton & Hove Albion Women vs Chelsea Women
This season is Brighton’s second season in the WSL. The three times they met last season – including once in the FA Cup – Chelsea were comfortable winners on all occasions.
Tottenham Hotspur Women vs Liverpool Women
Spurs and Liverpool were subject to 1-0 defeats in their opening games of the WSL season, the former losing away to Chelsea and the latter at home to Reading.
West Ham United Women vs Birmingham City Women
Both West Ham and Birmingham City did not manage to get points on the board last weekend following defeats to Arsenal and Everton respectively. They’re two of five sides without points so far.
Man Utd Women v Arsenal Women.
Manchester United Women faced rivals Manchester City last weekend. They will now play their first home game in the FA WSL at Leigh Sports Village against reigning champions Arsenal.
Casey Stoney’s side were defeated 1-0 as their cross-city neighbors recorded the victory.
What time is the Man Utd Women v Arsenal Women game?
Man Utd Women v Arsenal Women will kick off at 9:30pm on Monday 16th September 2019.
