She’s the most likely player to break Chelsea Women’s goalless run when the Blues travel to Liverpool to face Everton Ladies at the Merseyrail community stadium on Sunday afternoon.
Ramona Bachmann tops the official FA Women’s Super League statistics for shots on target (seven), but has still yet to score. By contrast, Arsenal’s Vivienne Miedema has scored four times with her six on-target efforts.
Demonstrating their remarkable upsurge in class this season, Arsenal Women also boast Jordan Nobbs with two goals from four shots on target, and Kim Little with two goals from three shots.
After two matches played in the league, Chelsea are in the unfamiliar position of sitting in sixth place.
Uncomfortably, Chelsea manager Emma Hayes gazes at the table to see – lying two places ahead of the Blues – Reading FC Women, featuring Gemma Davison, released at the end of last season.
The latest Opta stats for the WSL reveal that Davison has created more ‘Opta-defined’ big chances than any other FA WSL player this season (four), and that overall Davison has created eight goalscoring chances, though none has been converted by team-mates.
How Chelsea could do with restoring their goal-scoring confidence after firing blanks in two successive matches.
Next week the Blues are at home… twice.
They play SFK 2000 Sarajevo in the Women’s Champions League Round of 32 second leg on Wednesday September 26 at 7.30pm, and then Brighton & Hove Albion Women on Sunday September 30 at Kingsmeadow in the WSL at 2pm.
