Two sides with sights firmly set on domestic glory, Arsenal v Manchester City is always one of the most hotly anticipated dates in the FA Women’s Super League calendar.
Jonas Eidevall’s side have been in hugely impressive form so far this campaign, winning all six of their competitive matches in the WSL and UEFA Women’s Champions League.

The fixture has produced several memorable encounters over the years, with plenty of fond memories along the way for Gareth Taylor’s side.
Last year’s trip to Boreham Wood saw Lauren Hemp conjure up a late winner, while Caroline Weir made a similarly vital 94th-minute contribution against her former club in our 2-1 triumph at the Academy Stadium in December 2020.

The boss is confident that his players are ready, are you?
