Ellen White believes home advantage will give Arsenal the edge when they take on rivals Everton at Boreham Wood in the WSL on Thursday.

Laura Harvey’s side go into the crunch game knowing a win will take them one step closer to being crowned champions and White believes the Gunners will be boosted by familiar surroundings.

“It’s a massive game against Everton but we can take comfort from the fact that we are playing at home,” she told

“We all love playing at Boreham Wood. It’s our home ground and we are really comfortable playing there because the good pitch suits our style.

"Hopefully there will be a good crowd and they can help us.”

White was on the scoresheet in Sunday's 3-0 win over Doncaster and knows two more victories will hand Arsenal the inaugural WSL title.

“We weren’t at our best against Doncaster but the most important thing was the three points.

“We are taking each game as it comes and now we can look forward to Everton on Thursday.”
