Team news: Maanum and Wienroither to start

Frida Maanum

Jonas Eidevall has made one change to the side that beat Reading at the weekend, as we take on reigning champions Lyon in our opening Champions League match.

Norwegian international Frida Maanum makes her first start of the season in midfield. Maanum will be looking to add to her Champions League goal tally this evening, after netting our only goal in two legs against Barcelona last year. Meanwhile, Vivianne Miedema starts on the subs bench after her hour-long appearance against Reading. 

Laura Wienroither makes her fourth successive start for us at right back. The Austrian defender played against us in last year's Champions League for Hoffenheim before joining the Gunners in January.

Steph Catley and Lotte Wubben Moy continue their centre-back partnership following ongoing injuries to Rafaelle Souza and Leah Williamson. 

We also have three players from our academy on the bench this evening, including goalkeeper Naomi Williams, defender Katie Reid, and striker Michelle Agyemang - fresh from scoring for the Young Lionesses earlier this month.
