New Year, New Everton Ladies

Everton Ladies are ringing in the New Year with an away game against Bristol City Women on Saturday.

The last time these two teams played each other was in 2016 in the FA WSL 2 and Bristol won 3-2, which ensured their promotion.

While both teams are recently brought up to the top flight, the Toffees have more wins this season. Bristol City are currently 9th in the table while Everton Ladies are in 6th.

The Toffees are coming off of two league wins over Yeovil Town and Sunderland and a heartbreaking loss on penalties to Reading in the Continental Cup. The Vixens’ last league win was against Yeovil Town before going down in the Continental Cup 0-2 against Manchester City.

Bristol City is known for is for their cheeky social media presence:

Dutch player Danique Kerkdijk had this sick burn about some familiar faces on the Everton side:

“Two of my old FC Twente team-mates (Marthe Munsterman and Siri Worm) are at Everton and I think we can beat them and we need to because I don’t want to lose to my friends.”

(New mantra: Never lose to your friends!)

How did Siri Worm respond?

“I played a lot of years with Danique (Kerkdijk), five years in total with her and it will be nice to see and play against her.”

Looks like Worm will let the scoresheet get the last word on Saturday.

Predictions:

2-1 to Everton

Projected Lineup:

Lizzie Durack; Faye Bryson, Siri Worm; Georgie Brougham, Gabrielle George; Angharad James, Jodie Brett; Dan Turner, Simone Magill, Chaney Boye-Hlorkah; Courtney Sweetman-Kirk.
