Chelsea’s title defence started with defeat last week, as Emma Hayes’ side went down 3-2 at Arsenal in the first big six-pointer of this season’s WSL. The Gunners were a wee bit sharper thanks to their participation in the Champions League qualifiers, though Chelsea will take heart from the display of their Scotland midfielder Erin Cuthbert, who slotted a fine goal and set up another for Pernille Harder. Everton meanwhile opened with a 4-0 defeat at home to a Manchester City side without several big names, a deflating result after a promising sequence of pre-season wins. The fixture list hasn’t been kind to Everton, who now face another of the top teams in Europe … but any sort of result against the champions will give a squad who have set their sights on Champions League qualification a massive boost.

Kick off: 12.30pm BST.
