Chelsea Women vs Leicester Women: Where to watch the match online, live stream, TV channels & kick-off time
Chelsea are set to take on Leicester in a Women's Super League encounter on Wednesday at Kingsmeadow.
The London club's league form has been phenomenal. Emma Hayes' team has only lost two matches all season and have won all but one out of their last seven fixtures. Their most recent outing was a 7-0 win against Everton, which doesn't help the visitors' chances.
Leicester are 11th in the 12-team league with just four wins to their name so far. They have won two out of their last three matches and will be looking to bounce back from the defeat against Arsenal in their last game. The Foxes' last meeting against Wednesday's opponents resulted in an 8-0 defeat and they will be looking for their first-ever win over the Blues.

Hayes has confirmed that club top scorer Kerr is available for selection against Leicester. She was taken off in the first-half on Sunday due to a knock but the forward has recovered and is ready to go.
"Sam (Kerr) is going to be okay," Hayes said in the pre-match briefing. "On Sunday we took her off as a precaution but she's fine for tomorrow (Wednesday)." Kerr has scored 10 goals this season and will be hoping to add to her tally in the mid-week fixture.
