Women's Super League: Vivianne Miedema strike gives Arsenal victory over Manchester City
Good afternoon everybody and welcome to Meadow Park where defending champions Arsenal take on Manchester City in the Women's Super League.
It is a clash between the top two from last season as The Gunners look to hit back following their defeat to Chelsea by moving level on points with City.
The blue side of Manchester has seen four victories from their side's first four games, but their last league defeat did come in this fixture on the final day of last season.
That day Arsenal beat them 1-0 thanks to a wonderful late strike from Emma Mitchell. Can they repeat the feat here today? Not long to find out.
The line-ups will be with you shortly.
Subs: Peyraud-Magnin, Quinn, Mitchell, Maier, Roord, Veje
