​Arsenal v Manchester City: The Brief

For the final time at home this season, we’re in Women’s Super League action when we host Manchester City at Meadow Park on Saturday.

THE OPPOSITION

Despite a flying start to the season, City have had a tough time of it in recent months. Nick Cushing’s side were unbeaten in all competitions until the start of February, when they fell to a shock defeat against Birmingham City in the WSL. Since then, we beat them in the Continental Cup final, they were knocked out of the SSE Women’s FA Cup and Champions League, and their title challenge has hit a major bump in the road. Sat three points behind leaders Chelsea with just three games remaining, simply cannot afford to slip up again on Saturday.

LAST TIME WE MET

The Continental Cup final was a memorable one for Joe Montemurro. Not only was it his first piece of silverware since arriving in November, it also allowed him to see just how talented the group of players he inherited is. With both sides limited to few goalscoring opportunities on the night, Vivianne Miedema’s clinical finish was enough to edge out our opponents and secure the first title of Montemurro’s tenure in north London. It was our fifth Continental Cup title in all and a reminder to critics that, even though we were underdogs, we should never be underestimated.
