Arsenal travel to Women's Super League champions Chelsea this evening in another huge battle. 

The Gunners fell to a defeat against Manchester City on Sunday afternoon while Chelsea's 33 game unbeaten run in the league was ended by Brighton & Hove Albion. 

Chelsea have won four of the last five meetings between the sides but when they met in November at Meadow Park it finished in a 1-1 draw with Beth Mead putting the Gunners ahead before an own goal from Lotte Wubben-Moy at the death won a point for Chelsea. 

This will be the third meeting between the sides this season with Chelsea winning the first one 4-1 in the Continental Cup back in October. 

Joe Montemurro's side will be without Jordan Nobbs, Kim Little, Steph Catley, Viktoria Schnaderbeck and Jennifer Beattie which is a blow heading into a game of this magnitude.
