Over 40,000 tickets have been sold for our top-of-the-table clash with Chelsea Women at Emirates Stadium on Sunday, January 15.
A big victory on Sunday could see us overtake Chelsea at the top of the Women's Super League table, where we still have a game in hand on our London rivals.
This classic fixture is set to rival the current Women's Super League attendance record, which we smashed just a few months ago at September's North London Derby. 47,367 Gooners watched on as we walloped our oldest rivals 4-0 through goals from Beth Mead, Vivianne Miedema and Rafaelle Souza.
We last hosted our London rivals at Emirates Stadium in a 3-2 thriller back in September 2021, where Beth Mead's two goals and an incredible team performance secured our first competitive win over Chelsea in three years. Our most recent WSL meeting ended in a 0-0 draw at Kingsmeadow.
The match will kick off at 12pm (UK time) on Sunday, January 15 and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports.
