Gareth Taylor preview

However, Taylor says Lauren Hemp is in contention for her first start since our 1-1 draw with Chelsea after successfully recovering from a shoulder injury.

He also revealed that Demi Stokes is also nearing a return to action.

Last time out

City rounded off for the international break with a hard-fought win over Leicester City.

Chloe Kelly’s early strike proved the difference at the King Power Stadium as Gareth Taylor’s side retained our unbeaten start to the new WSL campaign.

Victory was also enough to see City move to the top of the league in the process.

Arsenal also enter the tie on the back of an away victory, with a brace from Katie McCabe enough to earn a 2-1 win at newly-promoted Bristol City.

Previous encounter

City’s title prospects were dealt a significant blow in April 2023 following a slender 2-1 defeat at Meadow Park.

Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw had handed the visitors a deserved early lead, but second half goals from Frida Maanum and McCabe were enough to see the Gunners come out on top.

Form Guide

City have started the new season in scintillating form, remaining unbeaten in all competitions so far.

We’ve won four of our five matches so far this season, with Chelsea’s 96th-minute equaliser the only blemish on an otherwise perfect record.

During that time, we’ve found the net 11 times, while conceding on just two occasions.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have recovered well from an opening day defeat to Liverpool, picking up seven points from a possible nine in the following three matches against Manchester United, Aston Villa and Bristol City.
