Arsenal host Tottenham in the Women’s Super League at the Emirates Stadium.
The game is an all or nothing for the Gunners who cannot afford to lose if they want to keep their title hopes alive. They find themselves four points behind WSL leaders Chelsea, but this is their crucial game in hand before Sunday’s final day of the season.
Given that Jonas Eidevall’s side have a superior goal difference to the Blues a draw would not necessarily end any chance of a dramatic turnaround, but a win would definitely pile on the pressure. Emma Hayes’ side face Champions League chasing Manchester United at home to round off the campaign, meaning that Arsenal will still be hopeful that they can end a three year trophy drought.
Spurs meanwhile have little to play for, having comfortably steered clear of relegation, but will be looking to bolster their chances of claiming their highest ever WSL finish by springing an upset at the Emirates to cap off a positive campaign under Rehanne Skinner.
The reverse fixture ended in a hard fought 1-1 draw, but Arsenal have only dropped points on one occasion at home in the league this season.
