Emma Hayes gave an insight into what it’s like to coach “maverick” Lauren James on Friday night, after her electric performance at Stamford Bridge in Chelsea’s 3-1 defeat of Arsenal.

“It’s a playground for her out there,” said Hayes, gesturing towards the pitch. “We coach many, many ­different players. Lauren is a maverick. It’s not always perfect, it’s not always on point. It’s not always consistent in every element of her game. But I’ll tell you this much, I understand that person. And I know that when we get to Stamford Bridge, she will 1,000% perform for the team here.”

James was a doubt before a critical game for the title race played under the lights in front of more than 32,000 fans, having been unwell all week, but the needs of Chelsea were great, with the anterior cruciate ligament injuries of Sam Kerr and Mia Fishel, and Mayra Ramirez out for a further one to two weeks with a groin/adductor injury stretching their attacking options.
“She came on against Everton last week, she wasn’t very well. She was sick all through the week,” said Hayes. “She came out for one training session and I said: ‘Look, you’ve got to go up top.’”

After strong finishes to last season’s Women’s Super League (Everton finishing in sixth and Aston Villa in fifth), Everton and Aston Villa have struggled to reach the same lofty heights this campaign. Only two places and two points separate the sides, who sit in 10th and eighth respectively.

The two teams face similar problems with injuries going into this clash. According to the Everton manager Brian Sørenson, his side could be missing nine players due to injury. Meanwhile, Carla Ward’s squad will be missing at least four players, including the first choice keeper Daphne Van Domselaar.

Key events

30 min: There’s a short break in play as Galli goes down with a head injury. She looks okay to soldier on after the physios offer her some treatment.

27 min: Aston Villa finally test the Everton keeper! Phew, I was getting worried they’d forgotten how to shoot. The ball is clipped over to Ebony Salmon on the right hand side. She races towards the byline and crosses a low ball into the box. Everton clear it only as far as Leon, who rifles a shot at Courtney Brosnan. It’s a powerful effort but it’s well saved.

22 min: Everton look like the hungrier side in this clash. Sørenson’s players are first to the loose balls and they are forcing Aston Villa into mistakes.

20 min: Aston Villa have also conceded a first half goal in each of their last four WSL games. Either way, we can expect goals in this game.

17 min: Aston Villa have started slowly. Things will pick up for them if their previous results are anything to go by though. They have scored a first half goal in each of their last three matches.

12 min: Neither side has been able to find their rhythm. Everton are probably edging it as they’ve shown the most intent going forward. Aurora Galli speculatively hits the ball from about 35 yards out. It’s deflected off of an Aston Villa defender and it’s out for the first corner of the game.

8 min: Everton have the first chance of the game! Bennison picks up the ball about 35 yards out. She is given space to dribble and takes the opportunity to fire a shot towards Leat’s left. It’s comfortably saved by the Aston Villa keeper though.

6 min: The home fans are making their presence felt. Their support seems to be making a difference as Everton are starting to get a foothold in this game with promising build up play.

3 min: Aston Villa are dictating the play in the opening stages of the game. So far they’ve managed to beat the Everton press and they are playing out from the back.

Carla Ward said this in her Thursday morning press conference: “We were in a good place before that Liverpool game. That game and the first half, in particular, against Arsenal hurt us. We need to go there [Walton Hall Park] and get points back, and if we do we’re still in touching distance of that top six. If we don’t we’ll be looking down the barrel.”

The 22-year-old played alongside Sjoeke Nüsken, who against Everton had played at centre-back, emphasising the scale of the problem, but James proved Hayes right: Stamford Bridge is James’s playground, she has scored eight times in six games at the ground and if there was illness or pressure it melted away. James scored the opener before the German’s double made it 3-0 with barely half an hour played.

“I thought she played with joy and played with freedom when the ball came to her feet,” said Hayes. “She can carry the weight of the crowd. She knows she’s an important player to the team. But I thought she put a shift in again out of possession and I know for the players behind they really appreciate that when it happens.”

Asked what she meant when she said she understands James, Hayes revealed what it is like to manage a young player with the talent and personality of James. “Most people in our environment tend to come to me to deal with Lauren,” said Hayes. “I do really well with maverick players. I look at the course of my career and I don’t know why but I just deal really well with that type of player.

“Can I relate to her as a Londoner? Maybe. We get along really well, we’re really close, I try to teach her all the time, little bits that are really valuable along the way.”

While we wait for Everton v Aston Villa to get underway, here’s a recap of Lauren James’ sparkling display in Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge yesterday.

Brian Sørenson makes two changes from the starting XI that lost 2-1 to Manchester City in their last WSL game. Martina Piemonte and Megan Finnigan replace Heather Payne and Rikke Marie Madsen. Finnigan captains the home side today.

Aston Villa make five changes from the first team who were thrashed 4-1 by Liverpool in their last league game. Alisha Lehmann, Kirsty Hanson, Simone Magill, Rachel Corsie and Van Domselaar make way for Ebony Salmon, Rachel Daly, Adriana Leon, Danielle Turner and Anna Leat. We knew there would be a host of changes.

Everton: Brosnan, Wheeler, Vanhaevermaet, Bennison, Hope, Piemonte, Finnigan, Kühl, Galli, Snoeijs, Stenevik
