How Chelsea Women Have Lined Up Recently

Through tactical tweaks, injuries, resting players, and new signings getting starts the starting eleven hasn’t been very settled this season. Ann-Katrin Berger has wrestled the starting goalkeeper spot from Zecira Musovic, the centre-back pairing of Millie Bright and Jess Carter has been unshakable.

For the match with Everton at the weekend the team was without Guro Reiten, Melanie Leupolz, Kateřina Svitková, and Cat Macario. It is safe to assume that none of the four will be fit in time to start this key match with Real Madrid.
