When the team news came out on Saturday afternoon Arsenal fans would have noticed a new name on the bench in the form of Teyah Goldie.
The 16-year-old appeared in her first senior matchday squad for the north London derby at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Goldie, who was born in June 2004 a month after Arsenal's men's side won the Premier League title, has risen through the youth academy ranks.
The youngster plays as a defender and has captained both Arsenal and England at youth level.
It is a mark of the Gunners' academy's quality that Goldie, Anouk Denton, Ruby Mace, Leah Williamson, Anna Patten and Lotte Wubben-Moy have all featured for the first team this season.
