As the FAWSL heads into an international break with the players heading off to their respective national teams to work their way towards Euro qualifiers next year. Manchester City Women and Arsenal Women have made a perfect start to the season with three wins out of three. Following them in third is Chelsea Women’s who have had a good start with two wins and a draw. The Blues have performed well with standout performers – one of them being new signing Guro Reiten.

Reiten signed for Chelsea over the summer after an exodus of players. An impressive run with the Norwegian Women National Team at the FIFA Women’s World Cup persuaded the Blues to go in for the winger. Two goals in three appearances have given us a glimpse of her potential. This tactical analysis scout report will elaborate on Reiten’s play style and the attributes she can bring to the league.

Tactical Analysis – Guro Reiten – ‘Inside-Forward’

It’s early days for the Norwegian winger but the analysis has shown early signs of her settling in well in West London. Reiten has scored two goals in her first three appearances for the club and showcased the attributes she brings to this Chelsea Women’s team. With a number of players having left Chelsea Women in the summer, Reiten’s transfer was seen as important. Karen Carney and Lizzie Durack retired whilst Ali Riley and Jade Bailey left to Bayern Munich and Liverpool Women respectively. The need for players was necessary and Reiten’s arrival is seen as a shrewd signing having seen her performances at the recent World Cup in France for Norway.
