The home side have won both their WSL matches so far, whilst the visitors were beaten by fellow title contenders Arsenal on the open day. New Manchester United Women’s manager Marc Skinner will have one of the most impressive figures in the game challenging him in the opposite dugout — Chelsea Women’s Emma Hayes. It will be a big test for him and his team against last season’s defeated Champion League finalists.

This is a fixture packed with international players, many of whom have been off representing their countries over the recent international break. Amongst the highlights were Chelsea Women’s defender Millie Bright heading home for England, with midfielder Fran Kirby also providing two assists for the Lionesses, as they hammered Luxembourg 0-10. Their club teammate Erin Cuthbert also scored for Scotland’s women, while superstar forward Sam Kerr made her 100th appearance for Australia Women during a friendly match against Ireland.

Furthermore, Manchester United Women’s Ella Toone netted for England for the first time, Martha Thomas was amongst the scorers for Scotland, and Jackie Gronen scored for the Netherlands. It all just goes to underline the array of talent on show in the Manchester United Women vs Chelsea Women live stream, and most of those players start today.

Here's how they line up:

Manchester United Women: Earps, Batlle, Mannion, Thorisdottir, Blundell, Staniforth, Zelem, Hanson, Groenen, Galton, Toone.

Chelsea Women: Berger; Bright, Carter, Eriksson; Reiten, Ingle, Leupolz, Charles; Harder, Kerr, Kirby.

Can Skinner’s side reverse this, or will Emma Hayes come out on top? Find out in the Manchester United Women vs Chelsea Women live stream, which we will show you how to watch below.
