Women's Champions League

Women’s Super League big guns remain on course for silverware

With the football season approaching the final few weeks three of the biggest teams in the Women’s Super League remain in the hunt for silverware.

Arsenal, Manchester City and Chelsea can each win trophies in three different competitions to complete what would be regarded as successful seasons for each club.

Read on as we assess the trio’s chances of glory.

Arsenal set to secure the title

Victory over Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday, April 28, will seal the Women’s Super League title for Arsenal and end a run of three successive third place finishes.

Arsenal defeated Brighton 4-1 at Meadow Park earlier in the season and it’s difficult to imagine them slipping up this weekend.

Vivienne Miedema scored her 30th goal of the campaign with a stunning effort against Everton last Sunday and she has been a major part of their success this term.

With Danielle van de Donk and Kim Little also in fine form at the moment, Arsenal are fully expected to clinch the title with ease at the Amex Stadium.

Manchester City can clinch cup double

City remain unbeaten in the league, but too many draws has proved to be their undoing in the title race this season.

However, they already have the League Cup in the bag after defeating Arsenal 4-2 on penalties in the final back in February and they are fully expected to make it a double in the FA Cup.

City face West Ham United in the final of that competition on Saturday, May 4, having smashed 10 goals past their opponents in two league meetings this term.

Missing out on the league title will frustrate City’s hierarchy, but a cup double would certainly be a nice consolation prize for the team.

Chelsea on course to snap Lyon dominance

Erin Cuthbert’s away goal gave Chelsea plenty of hope for the second leg as they lost 2-1 against holders Lyon in their Women’s Champions League semi-final.

The French club are chasing their sixth Champions League success, while Chelsea are bidding to reach the final for the first time.

The winners of the tie will face either Barcelona or Bayern Munich in the final on Saturday, May 18, with the Spanish side holding a narrow 1-0 lead after the first leg.

Chelsea have been extremely tough to beat in Europe this season and it would be no surprise to see them triumph in the Champions League.
