PREVIEW: Arsenal v West Ham United

Arsenal will be looking to move to within one win of UEFA Women’s Champions League qualification when they face West Ham United at Meadow Park on Wednesday evening.

The Gunners currently occupy third place courtesy of their superior goal difference over Manchester United but they hold a game in hand and will go three points clear with just two games left to play should they defeat the relegation-threatened Hammers.

Arsenal head coach Joe Montemurro is again set to be without Jen Beattie, Viktoria Schnaderbeck and Lisa Evans who continue to be sidelined with their respective injuries. Defenders Steph Catley and Noelle Maritz returned to the bench against Brighton & Hove Albion on Sunday while Lia Walti and Caitlin Foord are pushing for starts.

West Ham United battled to a goalless draw with Everton at The Chigwell Construction Stadium on Sunday and manager Olli Harder is likely to keep faith with the XI that started that match. The New Zealander remains without defender Lois Joel and forward Adriana Leon through injury.

The Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture between Arsenal and West Ham United is scheduled to kick-off at 7.30pm on Wednesday evening and will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
