The midfield pairing has featured Erin Cuthbert, Sophie Ingle and Sjoeke Nüsken with Melanie Leupolz sidelined. Offensively, Lauren James, Fran Kirby, Jessie Fleming, Aggie Beever-Jones, Jelena Čanković, and Johanna Rytting Kaneryd have taken to the pitch in starting roles.

Sam Kerr has fended off all competition for the starting striker spot.

Chelsea Women Recent Form and Tactics

A 4-2-3-1 has been the standard setup for Emma Hayes this term although it has occasionally shifted to a 4-1-4-1 which stands out as more of an attacking 4-3-3. They have also set up with a back three on occasion but it’s a rarely seen formation.

As of now, they have a spotless record with only a draw with Manchester City stopping them from winning every single match so far. They have been free-flowing in attack with 20 goals scored in their past five outings.

Chelsea Women Injuries to Consider

The club was without Melanie Leupolz, Millie Bright, Cat Macario, Guro Reiten, and Kateřina Svitková. All five are likely to miss this weekend’s clash.
