Gareth Taylor’s side welcome the Hammers to the Joie Stadium on Sunday 21 April, with kick-off scheduled for 14:15 (UK).

Only goal difference is keeping us off the division’s summit heading into the clash with the Blues level on points with current league leaders, Chelsea.

During her second season at the Club, following her summer 2022 arrival from Atletico Madrid, Aleixandri has played 25 matches in all competitions, and she discusses how she’s approaching the final furlong of the season.
