Led by manager Emma Hayes, the Blues are one of the dominant forces in English women’s football, winning the league and FA Cup double last season. With Lionesses skipper Millie Bright, nippy winger Lauren James and Aussie superstar Sam Kerr, they're well-placed to pick up yet more medals this year.
Spurs, meanwhile, had a very poor campaign last season. It was only 12 goals in 12 games from record-breaking signing, and former Chelsea striker, Bethany England that kept them in the WSL. England has since been appointed captain under new head coach Robert Vilahamn but will miss the start of the season after undergoing hip surgery. Midfielder Drew Spence does though start against her former side at Stamford Bridge.
History suggests that Chelsea Women will win this home game today. They have beaten Tottenham Women every time the side have met in the WSL and will be wanting to put in a statement performance to kick off their campaign.
Here's how they line up:
Chelsea Women: Musovic; Carter, Mjelde, Bright (captain), Charles; Ingle, Nusken, Reiten; Kaneryd, Fishel, Reiten
Tottenham Women: Spencer, James, Buhler, Bartrip (captain), Neville, Ahtinen, Summanen, Spence, Bizet, Clinton, Thomas
