Arsenal and Chelsea clash for the second Sunday in succession with the FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup this time at stake.

The meeting comes just seven days after the Blues beat the Gunners 2-0 at Kingsmeadow in crucial match for the Barclays Women’s Super League title race.

A record crowd is expected, with more than 20,000 tickets sold.

Arsenal have won the trophy a record five times and will be looking to add to their tally come the final whistle on Sunday.

FA Commercial Director, Navin Singh, said: “Continental Tyres have remained a trusted partner for more than a decade now which is testament to their passion for the women’s game. I’d like to thank them for their continued support of our League Cup and recognising the value of women’s football since the cup’s inception in 2012.”

Meanwhile in the BWSL, it’s top versus bottom as Manchester United meet Leicester City, with Manchester City – who are three points behind their great rivals – home to Tottenham.
