Arsenal Ladies manager Laura Harvey has warned her side against complacency when they take on Liverpool in their final FA WSL game.
The Gunners head into the match sitting top of the table and they know victory over the Reds will hand them the title. But Harvey insists her side need to be fully focused for the crucial match.
“We’ve done our job in the last two games now and we’ve got one more left to go,” she told Arsenal.com.
“Liverpool will be tough and they’ll be out to scalp us and we know that. We will have to perform well on the day.”
Earlier in the season Arsenal ran out comfortable winners over Liverpool at Meadow Park with goals from Julie Fleeting, Rachel Yankey and Kim Little. A repeat performance will see Harvey’s side lift the inaugural FA WSL crown.
“The outcome is in our own hands and that always has to be the plan," said the Ladies manager.
“If we go on and win the title from here we would have done it through our own merit. No one can punish us now but ourselves.”
Arsenal’s recent surge to the summit of the Super League has been in part down to the superb form of midfielder Little. She has been on the scoresheet eight times this season and has found the back of the net five times in her last four games.
The Scottish midfielder, who scored the vital goal in a 1-0 win over Everton last time out, insists her side go into tomorrow’s title decider full of confidence.
“We look to go on to the next game and hopefully win that and win the Super League," Little told Arsenal.com
“We’ll go into the Liverpool game positive after the win [over Everton].”
