The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE -

THIS week’s BT Sport WSL re­view show comes from to­day’s big WSL1 game be­tween Chelsea and Notts County.

With Manch­ester City play­ing Sun­der­land as well, it’s an im­por­tant day in the ti­tle race. Ar­se­nal can’t be ruled out but it looks like it’s head­ing to­wards a three-way tus­sle be­tween Sun­der­land, Man City and Chelsea – and Emma Hayes’ Blues are in the driv­ing seat.

Chelsea threw it away on the fi­nal day of last sea­son so they’ve got those mem­o­ries that should help them get over the line.

They’ve got a great set-up and some top play­ers and I al­ways thought they’d get their hands on some sil­ver­ware this sea­son.

They did just that by win­ning the FA Cup. I have to say, I thought do­ing the dou­ble was a bit much to ask this sea­son but they could be about to prove me wrong.

Of course, Notts County will be look­ing for a lit­tle bit of re­venge for their FA Cup fi­nal de­feat to Chelsea.

They’ve lost pace at the top and have gone off form since the league re­turned af­ter the World Cup. But they’re def­i­nitely ca­pa­ble of beat­ing any­body.

As ev­ery­one knows, they’ve got five Lionesses in their side and they’ve got real qual­ity.

In the re­verse fix­ture Gemma Dav­i­son scored both goals in a 2-1 win for Chelsea so they’ve got the edge over the Lady Pies this sea­son and they’ll be favourites.


. HOPE: Chelsea’s Gemma Dav­i­son will be a can­di­date for an Eng­land call up
