With Joe Montemurro set to take charge of his first game at the club, this Sunday’s match against Liverpool at Meadow Park is a must-see.
Ahead of the game Montemurro stated that he wants to deliver beautiful football to fans, while also making results a priority.
“I think the football and the way we want to play, the brand and identity of Arsenal, is very important and I want to make sure that it comes out” he told Arsenal Player. “When you come and watch a game I want it to be beautiful to watch, pleasing on the eye, but also that we win”
In our previous game we beat Watford 6-0 in the Continental Tyres Cup, with Jodie Taylor, Danielle Carter, Emma Mitchell, Dominique Janssen and Danielle van de Donk all getting on the scoresheet.
The visitors head into this weekend’s tie just a point behind us in the Women’s Super League and will be keen to close the gap.
In their last league fixture the Reds were 1-0 winners at home against Birmingham City and have since seen off Aston Villa 5-1 in the Continental Cup, before falling to a 1-0 defeat at Sunderland.
ONE TO WATCH
Having netted in against Sunderland, Vivianne Miedema is now in the swing of things over here in England, following her summer move from Bayern Munich.
Under new management, the striker will be hoping to be firing on all cylinders as we make a push to close the gap between ourselves and league leaders Chelsea.
LAST TIME WE MET
We drew 4-4 in a thrilling match at the Hive, where Danielle Carter bagged a brace.
The Reds took the lead through Alex Greenwood, before Chloe Kelly levelled the scores. Natasha Harding and Caroline Weir then secured the visitors a 3-1 lead going into the interval.
Following the break Carter and Jordan Nobbs struck to put us in the lead. However, Gemma Bonner levelled things up from a corner to share the spoils.
