The Opposition: 

After winning promotion to the Barclays FA Women’s Super League last season, Leicester City will be hoping to consolidate their position in the top division of women’s football this campaign. 

The Foxes arrive in east London having yet to register a point so far this season but came close against Aston Villa on the opening day. 

There have been changes to the team that won the title last season, including the departure of former Captain, Remi Allen – who joined Aston Villa and subsequently scored against the east Londoners last time out. 

However, Leicester have been able to strengthen, bringing in experienced forward Jess Siggsworth – who joined from fellow WSL side, Manchester United. She will aid Natasha Flint, who scored 21 times across all competitions, including 17 in the FA Women’s Championship. 

Jonathan Morgan has been the manager of Leicester City Women since the middle of the 2014 and oversaw their memorable campaign last season when he guided the Foxes to the FA Women’s Championship title for the first time in their history. 

His side amassed 50 points from 20 league fixtures on their way to lifting the trophy, including 16 wins and a total of 54 goals scored during their first season as a professional outfit.
