It has been a while since Chelsea Women last met West Ham on the pitch, with the Hammers being our third Women’s Super League opponent after the postponement of what would have been a season opener against our London rivals. Less than three weeks after the event the Blues handily beat them 3-1, despite an early scare via Dagný Brynjarsdóttir four-minute opener.

There will be little room for such mistakes today in our League Cup semifinal encounter against them, as manager Emma Hayes sends out full power against the East Londoners.

West Ham starting eleven:
Arnold | Smith, Shimizu, Stringer, Snerle, Brynjarsdottir, Filis, Hayashi, Fisk, Cissoko, Asseyi

Substitutes from: Hillyerd, Evans, Atkinson, Longhurst, Thestrup, Parker, Denton, Cooke, Houssein

Chelsea starting lineup (4-3-3?):
Berger | Périsset, Bright, Eriksson (c), Charles | Cuthbert, Ingle, Kirby | James, Kerr, Reiten

Substitutes from: Musovic, Carter, Leupolz, Fleming, Mjelde, Kaneryd, Buchanan, Abdullina, Cankovic
