PREVIEW: Everton v Arsenal

Arsenal will hope to seal their qualification for next season’s UEFA Women’s Champions League when they travel to Walton Hall Park to face Everton on Sunday.

The Gunners are currently three points clear of fourth-placed side Manchester United with just two games left to play. Their superior goal difference means that one more win will be enough to secure a third-place finish and in-turn, confirm their place in next season’s UEFA Women’s Champions League.

This weekend’s hosts Everton are already assured of finishing in fifth position in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League. Manager Willie Kirk continues to be without full-back Danielle Turner who has been ruled out until pre-season after undergoing surgery but midfielder Lucy Graham is expected to return.

Arsenal boss Joe Montemurro could hand minutes to defender Steph Catley following her return from injury. The Gunners are again expected to be without sidelined trio Jen Beattie, Viktoria Schnaderbeck and Lisa Evans. Montemurro could opt to make some changes to his side with the likes of Anna Patten, Danielle van de Donk and Jill Roord amongst those players hoping for recalls.

Everton’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against Arsenal is scheduled to kick-off at 1pm on Sunday afternoon and will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
