Chelsea Women v Bristol City Women preview: Kick-off time, how to watch from home and much more!

Chelsea vs Bristol City recent head-to-head record

Chelsea have won 10 of our last 11 Barclays FA Women’s Super League matches with Bristol City, netting 40 goals in the process, including scoring six times in two of the last three meetings.

The most recent encounter between the two sides came in January when we thumped the Robins 6-1 at home. Chelsea trailed a goal in the opening quarter but Bethany England levelled the scoring with a brave header and three more goals followed by half-time. Hannah Blundell gave us the lead five minutes prior to the interval with a fantastic left-footed strike that got a deflection on its way in. Defender Jess Carter scored her first ever Chelsea goal when she poked home from close range, and Ji So-Yun directed her low powerful shot into the net to give us a comfortable lead at the break. The South Korean scored her second of the match five minutes into the second half and England blasted home a header in the final stages of the match.

In last season’s away fixture we took the lead after three minutes courtesy of Guro Reiten calmly slotting home. Then, just seven minutes later, our lead was doubled as Reiten once again found the back of the net. The victory was sealed after only 17 minutes when Ji netted her first of the season with a powerful finish after being teed up by Sophie Ingle. The fourth goal was scored by Ingle, who tapped home to register her first-ever Chelsea goal.

The Blues clinched our second Women’s Super League title against Bristol in the 2017/18 season with a comfortable 2-0 win.
