The form

Many of the Blues squad returned to camp yesterday following time away with their international home countries.

Following the opening season loss away to Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, the Blues bounced back with a dominant 4-0 victory against Everton at Kingsmeadow. Chelsea delighted the home crowd with a double from Sam Kerr as well as further goals from Fran Kirby and Bethany England.

Manchester United have won their last five home league games, their longest ever home winning run in the competition. They’ve started the 2021/22 season in strong form, winning their first two fixtures. The Red Devils finished last season in fourth, one point behind Arsenal.
