The 2020-21 season was a banner campaign for the WSL, as the league’s profile grew considerably thanks in part to a title race that went down to the final day of the season in May.

Now, a year on from the first season of WSL fixtures on NBC Sports airwaves and digital platforms, two-time defending champions Chelsea will look to defend their title once again and become the first club (in the WSL era) to win back-to-back-to-back titles.

Manchester City pushed the Blues from start to finish, but ultimately came up two points short (57-55) after 22 games played. In the end, the difference between the sides was Chelsea’s emphatic head-to-head victory in game no. 4. They drew 2-2 in the reverse fixture, when only a victory could have brought Manchester City closer, though they still would have trailed on goal difference.

If you remove the two head-to-head matchups from a season ago, Chelsea finish with a record of 17W-2D-1L (53 points); Manchester City were 17W-3D-0L (54 points). Thin margins, as they say.

It’s looking like another Chelsea vs Manchester City title race — and that’s something we can all get behind, based on the evidence of last season — though 4th-place finishers Arsenal might also have their say over the next nine months.
