Leicester were held to a 1-1 draw with West Ham last time out.

It's been a tough run for City, who have only picked up two points in their last six WSL games, those draws coming on the road to Aston Villa back in March before Sophie Howard overturned a one-goal deficit last time out against West Ham United

In fact, their last win in any competition came against Liverpool, when the two sides met in the Adobe Women's FA Cup Quarter-Final, but although the Foxes want to end the season on a positive note, they have already achieved their highest-ever points tally in the top flight, and secured safety, with Bristol City's relegation to the Barclays Women's Championship confirmed.

City's last game on Filbert Way saw a record crowd of over 6,000 spectators watch a tight affair against Manchester United, and Saturday's hosts will be hoping the fans come out in their numbers once more, to cheer them across the line.

Liverpool head to the East Midlands in red hot form.

Liverpool have been in stellar form towards the back end of this season, and currently find themselves in fourth spot, three points ahead of Manchester United who host title-chasers Chelsea on the final day.

Winning 11 of their 21 games so far, and only losing on five occasions, head coach Matt Beard has worked wonders at the Merseyside club, who only gained promotion back to the top division in 2020.

Norwegian striker Sophie Haug has returned the biggest goals tally this term with six, most recently finding the net in a 4-3 upset at Prenton Park; beating Emma Hayes' Chelsea who are currently chasing Manchester City for the title.

Matt Beard has won three titles during his time on Merseyside.

Matt Beard has won as many games in charge of Liverpool as he has seen losses, with a respectable 42 per cent win rate, since his appointment as Manager back in the summer of 2021.

With previous records at Bristol City and West Ham United, the 46-year-old is back where it all started, and has won three titles during his two stints at the Reds; winning the Women's Super League in 2013 and 2014, before lifting the Championship trophy on their way back to the big time two seasons ago.

Jutta Rantala's brace over Liverpool sent Leicester to the FA Cup Semi-Finals.

Despite Liverpool's impressive form, the Foxes head into the fixture as favourites based on previous meetings, winning five out of seven, which includes two wins from three this year.

Aimee Palmer sent the Foxes on their way to a 2-1 win over the Reds in the early stages of the Continental Tyres League Cup before Liverpool took the points in the reverse WSL match; Melissa Lawley and Marie Höbinger cancelling out Missy Goodwin's Goal of the Season strike.

The third match in three different competitions came in early March when the two teams met for an FA Cup Quarter-Final clash in Tranmere. Leicester fans won't be forgetting the day Jutta Rantala scored twice to send them into the final four anytime soon.
