Emma Hayes makes four changes from the side that started against Manchester City before the international break.

The Blues are aiming to bounce back from defeat in that last outing and with Lauren James suspended, Johanna Rytting Kaneryd comes into the side.

There is another enforced change with Ashley Lawrence still away on international duty at the Gold Cup. She is replaced by Eve Perisset.

Fran Kirby, who was rated an injury doubt before today’s game, drops to the bench, as does Melanie Leupolz, so there are starts for Jelena Cankovic and Sjoeke Nusken. Niamh Charles’ place in the starting line-up continues her record as the team’s league ever-present this season, and she wears the captain’s armband today.

Catarina Macario is named on the Chelsea bench for the first time since signing, having been out with injury.

Leicester make one change from a big home win against Bristol City last time out. Courtney Nevin comes in.
