Following a three-week break, women’s super league (WSL) competition resumes this weekend. On Sunday, two games will air NBCSN: Chelsea v. West Ham (7:00 am ET) followed by Everton v. Manchester City (9:30 am ET).

What happened during the WSL break?

A handful of international friendlies were played during the break. All five Americans currently on WSL teams (Alex Morgan, Tobin Heath, Christen Press, Sam Mewis, and Rose Lavelle) played in the U.S. team’s 2-0 win over the Netherlands last weekend.

Where does the 2020-21 WSL season currently stand?

Manchester United currently tops the table. United is unbeaten in WSL play this season, most recently recording a 2-2 draw with Manchester City.

Quick refresher: At the end of the season, the lowest rank team in the WSL will be relegated to the second-tier FA Women’s Championship, while the highest ranked FA Women’s Championship team earns a spot in the WSL.
