Liverpool stun Chelsea and Daly dazzles as WSL kicks off – Women’s Football Weekly | Football


The delayed opening weekend did not disappoint …

We had a dazzling display from debutant Rachel Daly at Villa Park and it was penalties only at Prenton Park in a shock defeat for champions Chelsea by Liverpool. Arsenal and Manchester United both hit four, while there were also wins on the board for West Ham and Tottenham.

We discuss all the action from the first WSL gameweek, ponder what this batch of results means for the rest of the season, and take your questions.

We’ll be back with you next Tuesday to reflect on derby weekend in the WSL as Arsenal face Tottenham in front of a record crowd, Liverpool play Everton at Anfield, and there’s the small matter of Chelsea v Manchester City.
