FAWSL 2019/20: Chelsea Women vs Manchester United Women - tactical preview tactics

After the WSL cup and the international break, the FAWSL finally returns to action with matchday six. There are plenty of high profile matches taking place this weekend including the Merseyside derby between Liverpool and Everton. Tottenham takes on Arsenal in the London derby and arguably the biggest game of the weekend is between Chelsea and Manchester United.

The two teams have had contrasting starts to the season with the Blues finding themselves at the top of the table playing some scintillating football. The Red Devils, on the other hand, have played good football but haven’t won as many points as their performances have warranted. Having kept Arsenal and Manchester City to one goal, United have shown they have what it takes to stay afloat and eventually compete in the league.

Chelsea, meanwhile, have ambitions of winning the league. With no Champions League football to contend with, many are giving the Blues a major chance of picking up silverware ahead of Manchester City and Arsenal.

This tactical analysis preview will look to dissect and understand the different areas of strengths and weaknesses the two teams possess and how they can be exploited to gain three valuable points.
