Preview: Chelsea v United Women


In his pre-match press conference, Skinner said: “Apart from Jayde Riviere, everyone in this moment has reported well from the [Leicester] game and is reporting well for the week, so hopefully, fingers crossed, we will have a full squad to pick from when we go into this game against Chelsea.”

Riviere was also ruled out of United’s previous match, the 5-1 win over Leicester, with Skinner stating that she was “three weeks away” from fitness prior to that fixture.

For the hosts, Pernille Harder is out for the remainder of the campaign, while Fran Kirby had to pull out of England’s Arnold Clark squad in February due to a knee injury.

Kirby also missed the Blues’ Continental Cup final defeat to Arsenal last week, with Hayes admitting she was “unsure” when the midfielder would return.
