Hello and welcome back to our Women’s Super League coverage as we look to see if defending champions Chelsea can bag an away victory over Everton following a bumpy start to the season.
They lost their season opener against newly promoted Liverpool but have managed to steer the ship back on track with two wins over Manchester City and West Ham. They will be without manager Emma Hayes though for the foreseeable future after the boss underwent emergency surgery with Denise Reddy taking over on-field decisions.
Everton meanwhile will be looking to cause an upset after a bright start to their campaign. They have registered two wins and a loss and are just one place behind Chelsea in the table.
But who lines up for each team? The starting XI’s will be announced shortly so stay tuned ahead of kick off at 1pm BST
