Chelsea are set to take on Manchester United in the final game of the Women’s Super League tomorrow afternoon. Will Old Trafford see Emma Hayes’ side leave with a trophy or empty handed?

The last time the two teams met in Manchester was for the FA Cup Semi-final, which saw Manchester United secure their first win against the blues.

Manchester United went on to win the FA Cup Final securing themselves their first major trophy after having scored four past Tottenham.

Chelsea also secured a win against Tottenham this week after playing a midweek WSL fixture on Wednesday night, where their 1-0 win put them at the front of the title race.

Manchester United will be hoping for an FA Cup Semi-Final repeat, wanting to end the season on a continuous high and stop Chelsea from winning the league at Old Trafford.

After Marc Skinner’s controversial contract extension, the morning before the match he will also be wanting to prove to the fans why he is here to stay.

Speaking ahead Saturday’s fixture Skinner stated: ‘I am confident this weekend’s fixture will be another one to remember’.

‘We know how difficult it is to play against Chelsea’

He then went on to say: ‘Having success at the weekend and then coming into a big game like this, hopefully, it gives up that impetus and it’s a platform we want to build from.’
