West Ham United host Arsenal at Victoria Road this afternoon in the Women’s Super League. The kick-off is at 12:30 and the referee is Melissa Burgin, who will be assisted by David Middleton (Assistant Referee), Ruby Sykes (Assistant Referee) and Abigail Byrne (Fourth Official). The match is live on BBC Two, BBC iPlayer and BBC Sport Website.

Today’s hosts currently sit just one place above the relegation zone following just two wins in their 12 games to date, one of which came in their last outing versus bottom side Bristol City (1-2) at Ashton Gate, in front of a crowd of 6,214. Honoka Hayashi (13′) and Viviane Asseyi (56′) were on target that day, with Amalie Thestrup (48′) scoring for Bristol City.

The Gunners go into today’s game on the back of a 2-0 win away at Liverpool thanks to goals scored by Vivianne Miedema (60′) and Alessia Russo (69′), in front of a crowd of 6,085 at Prenton Park, and sit third in the table, three points off leaders Chelsea.

What the managers say (from Arsenal.com):

Jonas Eidevall on West Ham: “They’re a really strong team, have a strong squad and I think the only thing that is missing for them is that they haven’t really got rewarded for their performances in points.

“But, as a team, you see they keep on going, believing and that’s usually a very good sign for them.”

Rehanne Skinner on Arsenal: “With all of the teams at the top, it’s already been proven that teams can take points off of anybody in this league. 

“You have to turn up and be at your best on the day and give it everything that you’ve got. If it’s this weekend, then fantastic, we’ll take that.”
