Preview: Bristol City Women v Arsenal

Arsenal Women make the trip to the Stoke Gifford Stadium on Sunday, as Bristol City Women look to finish the season on a high (kick-off 12:30pm).

Previous meeting

The sides last met in November on a sunny winters’ day at Borehamwood. It finished 1-1, City Women were unlucky not to leave the capital with all three points as a number of chances fell their way that day.

That day also saw Lauren Hemp score an unbelievable goal from 25 yards out, which has helped her win both the Vauxhall England Young Player of the Year and the PFA Young Player of the Year this season.

Sunday's meeting

Bristol City Women narrowly lost to Chelsea on Tuesday evening, as the Blues won 2-0 to secure the WSL 1 title at the Stoke Gifford Stadium.

The Vixens need nothing less than a win as they aim for seventh spot in the league.

Arsenal make their way to the South-West needing a win to secure second place and European football next season.

The Gunners defeated Sunderland 2-0 on Wednesday evening in the North-East thanks to goals from Beth Mead and Kim Little.

One-to-watch

Jordan Nobbs – Fresh from signing a new contract this week, the talented midfielder has been instrumental for both England and Arsenal this season. Not only is she a talented ball player, but she is a goal threat with a tendency to score from distance when given the chance.

Tickets are available on the gate from 11am.
