Before the match, Liverpool boss Matt Beard said of facing defending champions Chelsea: “We want to play against the best players and I want to play against the best managers. It will be a big test for us. We want to win the game, but we understand that we are facing one of the best teams not only in Europe, but in the world in club football.

Chelsea boss Emma Hayes reflected on all the positives of the summer break was for her, saying, “I had an off-season enjoying life and enjoying everything from a walk to a drink. It’s no surprise that it’s the coolest I’ve felt. I always find a way to read, to study, to be interested. But this summer, my study was life. I’ve also reached a point in my career where I really appreciate it. I had years where I didn’t, but now I like the job. There is a rapprochement of a football model on which I have worked all my career. All the pieces of the puzzle are in sync and there is a great energy in the team where it is certain that we will continue to compete.

Preamble

Welcome back to our coverage of the Women’s Super League and to complete the first round, defending champions Chelsea take on newly-promoted Liverpool at Prenton Park.

Chelsea lost stars who were instrumental in their three straight WSL title wins at the end of last season with Ji, Jonna Andersson and Drew Spence all starting. But they had a good transfer window, bringing in Eve Perisset and Kadeisha Buchanan.

Liverpool also enjoyed a good summer of business, bringing in six players after winning the Championship last season. Among the stars in their ranks are former West Ham captain Gilly Flaherty and former Wolfsburg star Shanice van de Sanden.

Many will be predicting a win at Chelsea this afternoon, but with the results we’ve already seen in the first round, it could go either way. Team news to come before the 5 p.m. kick-off.
