WSL Midweek Preview

WSL Midweek Preview

The WSL is back! In this pair of midweek fixtures, Everton are gearing up to take on relegation-threatened Brighton & Hove Albion, while Manchester United will square off against Arsenal in what promises to be an all-time classic.

Manchester United are currently top of the WSL table. However, Arsenal are just three points behind them – they also have a game in hand over the Red Devils. United, despite this, have the superior goal difference.

Arsenal have a fresh injury concern ahead of their game with the Red Devils – captain Kim Little has been ruled out for the remainder of the WSL campaign, which could prove to be a very damaging absence.

In their last WSL game, Arsenal defeated Manchester City by a score of 2-1, while United breezed past Brighton by four goals to nil – with both teams in the ascendancy, it should be a highly-entertaining encounter.

Meanwhile, Everton will enter as the favourites for their game against Brighton on Wednesday evening. The Seagulls are currently bottom of the WSL, but they do have two games in hand over several of the teams directly above them.

Everton, meanwhile, have experienced a middling campaign in the WSL so far. With just five games to go, they are out of the title race, but are also in no danger of relegation.

In their last WSL fixture, the Toffees beat Tottenham Hotspur by a score of 2-1, thanks to a last-minute winner from Aggie Beever-Jones. Brighton, on the other hand, were thumped 4-0 in their last league game by Manchester United – can the Seagulls escape the drop zone, or will Everton compound their misery?
