After beating local rivals Liverpool at the weekend, Everton will look to make it back-to-back wins when they take on Leicester City this evening.
The visitors, meanwhile, are still looking for their first win of the season after losing their opening two Women’s Super League games.
They started their season with a 1-0 defeat at the hands of West Ham United, Everton making the short trip to Anfield with the aim of claiming bragging rights over their local rivals.
Coming up against a Liverpool side who previously beat reigning champions Chelsea 2-1 on the opening weekend. Everton may have been cautious about their chances of victory.
Any worries were quickly dispelled when Megan Finnegan gave Everton the lead inside nine minutes, while Jess Park showed composure and quality to double her side’s advantage before half-time.
An 87th-minute strike from Hannah Bennison added more gloss to the scoreline as Everton beat their Merseyside rivals 3-0 to claim their first win of the season.
Having beaten Leicester City in both of their previous two WSL meetings. Everton will be confident of a second straight win on Thursday.
Their opponents, meanwhile, are one of three WSL teams still without a point this season after losing their opening two games.
Leicester City lost 2-1 to Spurs on the opening weekend and hopes of a positive result in Sunday’s meeting with Aston Villa were dealt a huge blow when Rachel Daly scored from the spot in the third minute.
Despite keeping the score level for most of the game, Leicester were unable to find the elusive equalizer before Emily Gielnick wrapped up a 2-0 victory for Aston Villa with an 86th-minute effort.
Leicester City may have had a narrow two-point drop last season, but back-to-back losses suggest there could be another battle for regulation this season.
If they are to move away from danger then they need to quickly end a nine match winless streak in the WSL which has included eight defeats.
