Manchester United v Arsenal: Women’s Super League – live!

Hello and welcome to live coverage of a potential humdinger at Leigh Sports Village: ambitious Manchester United (lest that phrase jar, this is the women’s team we’re talking about) against unbeaten leaders Arsenal.

United start the game in fifth, with 12 points from seven games, but you should see their xG! Seriously, though - because sometimes the laughter has to stop - they have played a bit better than those bald statistics would suggest. They lost leads in their last three WSL games, draws against City, Spurs and Everton. Had they won two of those they would be in the cherished, Champions League qualification-ensuring third place.

Arsenal have finished third in six of the last seven WSL seasons - but they have precisely 0.00 per cent interest in making it seven out of eight. The title - which they have won only once in the WSL era - is a realistic ambition this year. They could barely have had a better start under their new manager, Jonas Eidevall: six straight wins followed by a dramatic 1-1 draw at Spurs last weekend.

This is another tough game for Arsenal, but they need three points to stay ahead of Chelsea, who will almost certainly beat struggling Birmingham this afternoon. The pace of the WSL title race is so unforgiving that any dropped points could be costly - today and, more importantly, when the engravers get to work in May.
