Leicester City host Liverpool at the King Power Stadium this weekend as the 2023/24 Women’s Super League season comes to a close.

The Foxes have the opportunity to lift themselves from 10th to 8th with a win, providing Everton and Brighton both drop points to Bristol City and Arsenal respectively.

A point would be enough for Matt Beard’s side to clinch 4th place from Manchester United, who sit three points behind them in the table.

It would make for the Reds best finish in the WSL since the 2016/17 season.

Leicester haven’t won a game since they last played Liverpool in the FA Cup quarter finals back in March, and in the seven games since they have managed only two draws and five losses.

The club has been without a manager since April when they sacked Willie Kirk after it was revealed out he had a relationship with a player.

Assistant manager Jennifer Foster has stepped in to cover the remainder of the season whilst the club finds a replacement but it has now been confirmed that Saturday will be her last game in charge.

Liverpool have beaten three out of the traditional ‘top four’ WSL teams this season, even managing the double over bitter rivals Manchester United, yet have at times struggled for results against teams lower down the table.

It’s been an impressive run for a team spending just their second season back in the top flight of women’s football, and they’ll be hoping their move to the St Helens Totally Wicked stadium next season will take them to that extra level.

All remaining WSL games take place on Saturday 18 May and kick-off simultaneously at 3pm.

Leicester City v Liverpool is available to stream on the FA Player.
