Women’s Super League winner odds: Chelsea 4/5 to retain title

Chelsea have won the last four editions of the Women’s Super League and are looking to make it five in a row in 2023/24.

Chelsea have been the dominant force in the Women’s Super League in recent years, winning the title in four of the last five seasons.

Emma Hayes’ side edged Manchester United to top spot by two points in the previous campaign but have Manchester City for company this term, with the Citizens currently top of the table.

Chelsea Women

Chelsea did the double last season, for a second consecutive time, winning the WSL championship and also securing the FA Cup for a third successive season after beating Manchester United 1-0 in May.

There have been some big changes for the Blues however, with club captain Magdalena Eriksson and key forward Pernille Harder departing to Bayern Munich.

New striker Catarina Macario has arrived on a free transfer from Lyon after a year out, due to an ACL injury. Macario scored 28 goals in 44 games for the French giants, now securing a deal at Chelsea until the summer of 2026. 22-year-old, German midfielder Sjoeke Nüsken, has also arrived from Eintracht Frankfurt.

They started the season in emphatic fashion, taking 22 points from a possible 24 before Arsenal inflicted their first defeat of the season.

The Blues were beaten by title rivals Manchester City in a top-of-the-table clash in February but Emma Hayes' side have responded impressively by winning four consecutive matches. A 4-3 defeat to Liverpool threatened to derail their title hopes but they bounced back in emphatic fashion with an 8-0 drubbing of Bristol City.

With fixtures against Tottenham and Manchester United remaining, Chelsea know only two wins will suffice if they're to retain their crown.

The league remains their only hope of silverware this term after suffering defeat in the FA WSL Cup final to Arsenal before losing to Manchester United in the FA Women's Cup semis.

Hayes' outfit progressed to the final four of the Champions League and were even triumphant in the first leg against holders Barcelona in Spain, only to suffer defeat in the return leg and bow out of the competition.

Man City Women

Manchester City finished fourth in the WSL last season, but they broke the club transfer record to sign Dutch midfielder Jill Roord in an attempt to put that right.

They paid a reported fee of £300,000 but other than that, they had a quiet summer on the transfer front compared to some of their rivals.

Hayley Raso departed for Real Madrid and young forward Jess Park has returned from loan at Everton last season where she netted five goals in 21 games in all competitions.

Starting the season with three wins from four, City were beaten by Arsenal before a shock loss at the hands of Brighton. They bounced back from the setback impressively, defeating local rivals Manchester United 3-1 before humiliating Tottenham 7-0.

They've followed up that emphatic triumph with another three consecutive victories, which included comprehensive wins over Merseyside outfits Everton and Liverpool, before Khadija Shaw helped the Citizens inflict Chelsea's first home league defeat in three years and deliver a huge statement in the title race.

Victory over Arsenal would have all but sealed the league title for Man City but a late double from Stina Blackstenius inflicted a shock defeat, which in turn puts their fate back in the hands of Chelsea, who are three points behind but possess a game in hand with a superior goal difference.
