Manchester United Women face Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday, a match significant for the fact that it’s the first time fans can see them play in person at the Theatre of Dreams, but also for implications in the Red Devils’ league campaign. United, currently in third place behind behind Arsenal and Chelsea, have a chance to secure a berth in the UEFA Women’s Champions League next season if they can finish in the top 3.
There is also still technically a possibility they can get back in the title race as well, though unlikely considering the form of both Arsenal and Chelsea (Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 12, Chelsea haven’t lost in the league since early December). Marc Skinner’s side also have their noisy neighbors to worry about, who are level with them on points and only in 4th on goal differential. It’s a big test for United to navigate their 5 remaining league games and potentially build on their time in the FA WSL thus far. If they want to start competing amongst the best this will give them the chance to show they’re truly moving forward despite the limitations of the club board.
Here’s how to watch the Reds take on 9th placed Everton.
It’s an 12:30 PM kickoff in the UK, which translates to 7:30 AM on the east coast of the U.S. and 4:30 AM on the west coast.
