The Barclays Women’s Super League is back with a bang after the international break as Arsenal takes on Manchester United in a top-of-the-table clash.
A win for United will see them go level on points with the Gunners. With champions Chelsea also up there at the top, it is vital that Jonas Eidevall’s side pick up three points.
Arsenal welcome back Vivianne Miedema to the team and there was a welcome sight as Lioness captain Leah Williamson returned to training this week.
Eidevall outlined the threat that Marc Skinners’ team pose: “It will be a tough game. We obviously now have a quick turnaround from the international period. For us, it’s about playing one game at a time, controlling what we can control, and making the most of our performance. If we do, we’re confident that we can deliver good results.”
Once again Arsenal will take to the field at the Emirates Stadium with a big crowd in attendance, with over 35,000 tickets sold. The Arsenal head coach spoke about the benefits that come from playing so many matches at the venue: “I think it’s one of our two homes. And from the time I’ve been here, we feel more and more that this is our home.
“We feel more and more that it’s on a platform, where we’re able to share our love for Arsenal with so many more people than just ourselves in the team. To share that and to see how much energy that creates, and that bond between the team and the supporters, I think it’s beautiful, and the Emirates just gives us much more opportunity to do so.
“Manchester United have had a great start to the season. I’m so pleased that we can, again, sell such a high number of tickets when we go to Emirates and have these high standards. It was a beautiful experience at the North London derby and, together with our fans, we want to try and create the same thing.”
