Yeovil Town v Arsenal: The Brief

Jordan Nobbs celebrates with Danielle Carter

We return to FA Women’s Cup action on Sunday when we travel to Woodspring Stadium to face fellow Women’s Super League 1 side Yeovil Town, hoping to secure a place in the fifth round of the competition.

THE OPPOSITION

Yet to register a point or a single goal after seven games in WSL 1, bottom-placed Yeovil Town will be hoping to bounce back from consecutive 8-0 defeats to Chelsea and Liverpool by pulling off a cup upset this weekend.
 
In fact, you have to go all the way back to November 6, 2016 for Yeovil’s last competitive win, when they beat Sheffield 3-0 on the final day of their promotion-winning WSL 2 campaign.
 
In Annie Heatherson, though, they do possess a diminutive striker of vast experience. Keeping the former Chelsea forward quiet will be key to seeing off Yeovil’s threat.

ONE TO WATCH

Having been rested for last weekend’s goalless draw against Reading, expect Danielle Carter to start up front on Sunday.
 
The livewire forward has netted twice in 11 games across all competitions this season, but her pace, power and directness could cause Yeovil’s struggling defence issues.
 
Carter will no doubt have fond memories of this competition too, having scored the winning goal against Chelsea at Wembley when we lifted the trophy back in 2016.

LAST TIME WE MET

Carter was also on target the last time we faced Yeovil, scoring our fourth goal in a 5-1 WSL Spring Series win back in May 2017.
 
Jodie Taylor struck twice, with Heather O’Reilly scoring a late penalty, while Molly Clarke turned also into her own net to complete the scoring.
 
We would go on to finish third in the competition, behind Manchester City and champions Chelsea, with Yeovil bottom of the table having recorded just one point after eight games.
