Preview: Liverpool Ladies v Bristol City Women

Bristol City Women face Liverpool tomorrow at the Select Security Stadium, Widnes (kick-off 5:30pm).

Liverpool are currently third in the table, behind unbeaten Manchester City and Chelsea and are in action for the first time since the start of the month while the Vixens, who are eighth, are looking to bounce back from their defeat against Birmingham last time out.

Previous meeting

The spoils were shared when these two teams met in the FA WSL Spring Series in May last year.

In a dramatic 1-1 draw at the Stoke Gifford Stadium, Katie Zelem looked as though she had fired the travelling Reds to victory when she struck late on, but there was time for Lily Agg to save the day for the Vixens, the substitute nodding home from a Claire Emslie cross.

Tomorrow's meeting

Liverpool started 2018 with an 8-0 win over Yeovil, with Bethany England scoring four goals on the day.

Willie Kirk's Vixens, meanwhile, suffered a 2-0 loss on the road at Birmingham City earlier this month but they did begin the year with a 2-1 win over Everton at the Stoke Gifford Stadium thanks to two goals from Lauren Hemp.

One-to-watch - Rinsola Babajide

Liverpool this week announced the signing of England Under-20 striker Rinsola Babajide, who featured as the Young Lionesses won the Nike International Tournament in Florida in December.

The 19-year-old, who came through the ranks at Crystal Palace and Millwall Lionesses, joins from Watford and notched three goals in nine appearances in the FA WSL Spring Series last year.
