The 2022/23 WSL season is entering its dying embers. With just a handful of games remaining, can Chelsea and Arsenal bolster their respective positions at the top of the table? Or will they fall foul of a banana skin?
Chelsea’s game against Leicester appears to be a straightforward task for the Blues at first glance – the Foxes are mired in relegation problems, while Chelsea are aiming for the WSL title. However, Leicester have enjoyed resurgent form as of late.
In their last game, they put up a spirited effort against Arsenal – in the game before that, they thrashed Liverpool by a score of 4-0. As such, the Foxes will be looking to spring a surprise against Emma Hayes’ team.
Arsenal will also take on a team threatened by relegation in midweek – Brighton and Hove Albion. The Gunners are currently nine points behind league leaders Manchester United, but they also have two games in hand over the Red Devils – they will need to win them both to remain in title contention.
Brighton, despite their league position, are no pushovers. They overcame West Ham United in their last WSL game, winning by a score of 1-0 – Arsenal were likewise victorious in their previous league fixture, as they beat a stouthearted Leicester outfit also by a score of 1-0.
