Liverpool welcome Leicester this Sunday in the Women’s Super League, with both teams currently tied on seven points.

With only goal difference separating the two sides, this game is likely to be hotly contested.

Just four games into the season, both Leicester and Liverpool have won two, drawn one and lost one, with neither team able to chalk up a win since game week two on October 8.

Liverpool’s most recent loss came at the hands of fierce Merseyside rivals Everton, whilst the Foxes last suffered defeat when they welcomed league leaders Manchester City to the King Power two weeks ago.

The clubs met just last month in the FA WSL Cup, where Leicester came out the victors in a 2-1 win.

Eight members of the Liverpool squad featured for their countries in Monday and Tuesday’s international fixtures, so coach Matt Beard will be hoping they’ll be rested enough to put in their best possible performance this weekend.

It’s looking doubtful, however, that Red’s forward Ceri Holland will feature. The Welsh international was taken off late into Wales’s 5-1 defeat to Germany in the Women’s Nations League, and subsequently left the ground on crutches.

On the availability of the forward Matt Beard said: “Whether Ceri will be available for Sunday I’m not sure at this moment, but the good news is there is no long-term damage so we will just be careful with her because Ceri is such an influential player for us.”

Fellow Welsh forward Hannah Cain also appeared to pick up a knock in the Germany game but was sent back to Leicester early and should be fit to play her part in Sunday’s fixture. However, the Foxes are still without their Australian forward Remy Siemsen, who will be out until mid-November with an ankle injury.

There’s also an outside chance the game doesn’t get played at all, with the threat of storm Ciaran looming over Merseyside.

If the rain stays away, the game is scheduled to kick off at 2pm at Prenton Park on Sunday Nov 5).
