Match Facts

  1. Birmingham City won their first two WSL matches against West Ham United in the 2018-19 season but are winless in four games against the Hammers since then (D2 L2).
  2. West Ham won 2-1 at Birmingham in the WSL last season despite conceding first – that remains the last time the Hammers won an away WSL game after conceding the first goal.
  3. Birmingham City have lost 16 of their last 18 WSL matches (W1 D1), losing seven of their eight games under Darren Carter (W1).
  4. West Ham have failed to score in nine of their last 14 away WSL matches (W3 D3 L8), although they’ve avoided defeat in the five games in which they’ve scored in this run (W3 D2).
  5. Birmingham have only four points after 16 WSL matches this season (W1 D1 L14) – it is the third-lowest total for a WSL side at this stage of a season, ahead only of Yeovil Town in 2017-18 (2) and Doncaster Rovers Belles in 2016 (3).
  6. Birmingham have played 71.1% of their overall passes short in the WSL this season, the lowest of any side, using possession to go long more often than the rest. Indeed, the Blues have recorded the fewest number of touches in their opponent’s area (157), shots on goal (110) and amassed the lowest xG tally (10.05) of all WSL sides in 2021-22.
  7. Since keeping their only clean sheet in the WSL this season in a 2-0 win against Arsenal in January, Birmingham have shipped 16 WSL goals, more than any other side, and lost all five games in that time.
  8. Only Jill Scott (158) has started more WSL games in the competition’s history than West Ham’s Gilly Flaherty (157), who has appeared from the start in 67 of the Hammers’ 70 games since promotion to the top-flight. Of the ever-present sides since 2018-19, only Aileen Whelan for Brighton (97%) has started a higher share of her side’s matches than Flaherty (96%).
  9. Lucy Quinn scored her first WSL goal for Birmingham City since January 2019 in their 4-2 defeat at Arsenal. West Ham United are one of two clubs that Quinn has scored twice against in the WSL, along with the Gunners.
  10. Only Emma Coates in 2016 and Jonathan Morgan in 2021 (8 each) lost more of their first eight WSL matches as a manager than Birmingham boss Darren Carter (7).
