PREVIEW: Aston Villa v Arsenal

Aston Villa and Arsenal will be hoping to finally contest their Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture at the fourth time of asking on Sunday with the pair set to meet at The Banks’s Stadium in Walsall.

The two clubs have attempted to play the match on three previous occasions but have seen those games called off due to COVID-19, rain and heavy frost.

Aston Villa were without Chloe Arthur, Ramona Petzelberger and Shania Hayles prior to the international break and an update on the condition of those players has not yet been provided. Full-back Ella Franklin-Fraiture is a long-term absentee and is therefore definitely sidelined for the match.

Arsenal make the trip to The Midlands without defender Steph Catley and midfielder Viktoria Schnaderbeck through long-term injury. The Gunners head coach Joe Montemurro has confirmed that attacking midfielder Kim Little may be a week away from full fitness while Caitlin Foord could be assessed ahead of the match. Jen Beattie and Jordan Nobbs are available for selection following their respective injuries.

Aston Villa’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against Arsenal is scheduled to kick-off at 2pm on Sunday. The match will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
