INTRODUCTION – WOMEN’S SUPER LEAGUE LONDON TEAMS

Arsenal, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United are the FA Women’s Super League (WSL) London teams taking part in the WSL 2023/2024 season

Chelsea (pictured below) are defending the title after sealing a fourth consecutive WSL title on the final day of last season with a 2-0 win over Reading.  Manchester United finished runners-up with Arsenal in third place.  Chelsea also added the Women’s FA Cup to their haul (beating Manchester United in the final) but were thwarted in their pursuit of a domestic treble losing 3-1 to Arsenal in the final of the Continental League Cup.  A win that marked the first trophy in four years for the Gunners.

SEASON SO FAR

It’s all to play for after fourteen rounds of the 2023/2024 WSL season.  Champions Chelsea are top of the table on 34 points, level on points with Manchester City.  The sides have an identical goal difference, the Blues are top courtesy of their goals scored tally.  Arsenal, in third place on 31 points, are in hot pursuit.  With Manchester United (in fourth) 7 points of adrift of the Gunners, it looks increasingly like a three-way battle for the WSL trophy.

Manchester City blew the title race apart with them 1-0 road win over Chelsea on Friday night.  Meanwhile Arsenal put their surprise London derby defeat to West Ham United behind them, sweeping aside Manchester United 3-1 in front of a record WSL crowd at Emirates Stadium.  The Hammers were unable to make it three wins on the spin losing 2-0 at Everton, slipping a place to tenth.  Tottenham Hotspur remain in sixth place despite suffering a disappointing 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Aston Villa.

MATCH OF THE WEEKEND

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur go head-to-head in the North London Derby at Emirates Stadium on Sunday 3 March.  It’s a must-win match for Arsenal as they look to close the gap on leaders Chelsea and Manchester City above them.
