THE TEAM NEWS

BRISTOL CITY

  • City started their league campaign with a victory at Brighton so they are one of four teams to sit on three points in the standings.
  • They suffered defeat at the weekend as Man City finally broke their resistance in the Continental Cup as they ran out 3-0 winners.
  • They made a handful of changes for that match with Pattinson, Rood and Humphrey coming in but the likes of Wooley, Rutherford and Graham should all return.

CHELSEA

  • Chelsea have just one point after drawing their opening match with rivals Man City but their form in other competitions has been exceptional so far.
  • Other than that goalless draw, they have racked up 18 goals in their other four competitive matches which they have all won, and they will look to get their first league win here.
  • They travel to the South West where they have a good record and will be buoyed by the fact that they won the title there last May to clinch the domestic double.

KEY STATS

  • Bristol City have lost each of their last six home WSL matches
  • Bristol City have scored a total of just two goals during their last five home WSL matches

  • Bristol City have only failed to score in one of their last seven WSL matches
  • Bristol City have not scored during the first half in any of their last four WSL matches
  • Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 22 WSL matches (includes Spring Series) – their last defeat was 2-1 away to Man City in May 2017
  • Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 11 away WSL matches (includes Spring Series)
  • Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 10 competitive fixtures – winning nine times and drawing once

THE PREDICTION

Although the hosts sit above Chelsea in the table after one match, that is likely to change here. Chelsea were the better of the two teams against Man City in the previous league match and have dominated against all other teams they have played this season. Expect a comfortable win for them here.
