This week on our We Are Chelsea podcast, Maren Mjelde and Melanie Leupolz sat down to preview our penultimate Women’s Super League fixture against Tottenham Hotspur.

The Blues travel to Brisbane Road this evening knowing victory in our game in hand would see Emma Hayes' side go top of the table.

We are currently second in the WSL and three points behind leaders Manchester City but boast a superior goal difference of one. That means a victory at Spurs would move level on points with City going into the final game of the campaign at Manchester United.

After a rollercoaster run-in to the end of the season, a resounding 8-0 win over Bristol City got us back in contention for a fifth consecutive WSL title - and Mjelde and Leupolz are raring to get back to it against Spurs.

‘I think exciting is almost the right word because it almost felt like we lost the title race and now we’ve got the second chance – now we just want to make sure we win this title,’ said Leupolz.

‘We’ve got two games left and two hard games against Tottenham and United, but now I feel like it is back in our hands,” added Mjelde. ‘We kind of know how to win these type of games. The girls are super ready.’

On the latest episode, Mjelde also reflects on her time as a Blue as she prepares to say goodbye to Chelsea after seven years at the club.

It has been a successful spell for the Norwegian international who will be looking to add another WSL medal to her current collection which includes 11 major trophies.

‘It has been an amazing journey,’ said Mjelde.

‘I remember the first time I met Emma, she said to me ‘if you sign for Chelsea, you will become a winner’ because before I came to Chelsea I had never won any trophies before.

‘I signed and the rest is history. I will forever be grateful for having had the chance to play for Chelsea and especially playing amongst so many good players has helped me develop every day.'

Leupolz also paid tribute to her team-mate who was celebrated at her final home game at Kingsmeadow alongside the outgoing Fran Kirby and manager Emma Hayes.

‘I saw a few tears in Kingsmeadow when we celebrated them,’ added Leupolz.

‘We wish them all the best. It is really sad that football is like that – people move on and move to different clubs, but they will be really missed in our locker room.’
