Liverpool vs Chelsea preview: Kick-off time, where to watch and more!

From the official Chelsea FC website:

Chelsea return to Barclays Women’s Super League action when we travel to take on Liverpool at Prenton Park on Wednesday evening.

Having seen our UEFA Women’s Champions League journey come to a disappointing end on Saturday, the Blues have four games remaining in the race to defend our WSL title with Liverpool our first assignment in May.

In our previous WSL outing, we recorded a 3-0 victory over Aston Villa at Kingsmeadow. Maika Hamano and Kadeisha Buchanan scored their first goals for the club after Aggie Beever-Jones had broken the deadlock with a clever finish.

We travel to a Liverpool side who have continued to evolve under the guidance of Matt Beard. They are the first of four hurdles we will be required to clear as the season nears its conclusion, with the title race intensifying.

We make the long journey north to face Liverpool at Prenton Park in the WSL this Wednesday 1 May, with kick-off scheduled for 7.00pm (UK time).
