Women's Super League One 2015 club-by-club season preview

Women's Super League One 2015 club-by-club season preview Women's Super League One 2015 club-by-club season preview

The 2015 Women's Super League One season gets under way on Wednesday, with defending champions Liverpool Ladies looking to win the WSL crown for the third year in a row.

The most thrilling day in the history of top-flight women's football in England decided the title last season, as Matt Beard's side came from third at the start of the final day's fixtures to pip Chelsea by a goal difference of just two.

Birmingham City were also part of the race, eventually finishing a point adrift after drawing 2-2 against Notts County - with Lady Magpies keeper Carly Telford having a massive hand in deciding the title by saving a penalty from England striker Karen Carney.

It was gloriously dramatic and heart-wrenchingly exciting, and not all the fun of the 2014 season was contained to just one day.

Arsenal collected their 13th FA Women's Cup, beating an Everton side that would eventually be relegated after 21 years of top-flight football.

Manchester City marked their first season in the WSL by winning the Continental Cup, and then there was the European exploits of Bristol Academy, who progressed to the Champions League quarter-finals with a remarkable win over Barcelona in the last 16.

Add into the mix the prospect of a World Cup in June, and the 2015 season should deliver the same drama, as the array of England internationals and contingent of foreign stars aim to make an even bigger impact on the WSL.

Arsenal FA Cup

Arsenal right-back Alex Scott told BBC London: "By Arsenal's standards, you have to say last season was disappointing, but we stuck together and we did well to finish fourth and still come away with silverware with the FA Cup.

"We've got a new manager and he's really exciting. With the players he's brought in, we can push on again."

Ones to watch: Striker Lianne Sanderson and goalkeeper Siobhan Chamberlain made headlines for their performances as England beat Canada 1-0 in the final of the Cyprus Cup earlier this month, but the Arsenal squad also includes several other vastly experienced internationals, including former England captain Casey Stoney and the national team's record goalscorer Kelly Smith .

Key early fixtures: Arsenal will be the last of the eight teams to get their league season under way when they travel to Notts County on Thursday, 2 April, but the first really tough test of their title credentials could come on 19 April when they visit big-spending Manchester City.
