Defending FA Cup champions Chelsea Women face Arsenal today at their home turf, Kingsmeadow, in what will be the second time the fierce Women’s Super League rivals meet each other this season. In the first encounter the scoreline was an 1-1 draw at the Emirates that did well enough to reflect the refereeing helping hand for Arsenal, who failed to beat the Blues despite us being on an off-day for our standards.
And to see off Arsenal from the cup, manager Emma Hayes goes ahead with a strong lineup. No risks taken!
