Liverpool fought to see another season in the WSL

Liverpool wrapped up their season last weekend, finishing in seventh place in their return to the top flight after two seasons in the Championship.

Matt Beard’s squad used their strong home form to give them that push with their away form letting them down by picking up only 5 points on the road. The Reds picked up some good results against the top teams by kicking off their season by sealing a last minute winner over reigning champions Chelsea and a hard fought 2-1 win vs Manchester City, showed the clubs ability to compete at the highest level. There was some disappointing away results with the reds getting thumped 6-0 to United and a 4-0 loss to struggling Leicester City.

After losing a lot of players to injury including one of their key players, striker Leanne Kiernan, who has spent the whole season on the sideline after she suffered an ankle injury during their first league of the season against Chelsea. New additions in January bolstered their squad for the second half of the season by making five signings including Gemma Bonner, Fuka Nagano, Sofie Lundgaard and Miri Taylor.

Liverpool were narrowly beaten in their final game vs Manchester United, in front of 5,778 fans, the record attendance crowd at Prenton Park. They waved goodbye to Rhiannon Roberts, Leighanne Robe and Carla Humphreys who all made their last appearances for the club. The club will be looking to keep hold of their players who contracts are expiring at the end of the year with the likes of Ceri Holland and January signing Fuka Nagano, who the club will be looking to hand out new contracts too.

Overall, Liverpool have had a successful season. A seventh place finish with a total of 23 points, this is the joint highest from a newly promoted side.

Will Liverpool be able to push further up the league and challenge with the other big teams next season?
