Chelsea Women’s Barclays Women’s Super League fixture against Arsenal will now kick-off at 3pm.
The Blues welcome the WSL reigning champions Arsenal to Kingsmeadow on Sunday 13 October. The move to a 3pm kick-off is because this mouth-watering clash will be shown live on BT Sport .
After playing Bristol on Sunday, this will be Chelsea’s fourth league match of the season having hosted Tottenham Hotspur at Stamford Bridge and travelled to the south coast to face Brighton and Hove Albion.
2019/20 began with a win courtesy of a wonder strike from Bethany England, but our second fixture resulted in a nervy affair and we came away with a draw thanks to a stoppage-time goal from Adelina Engman.
The Gunners have had a perfect start to their WSL campaign after winning 2-1 against West Ham and coming away with all three points in a 1-0 victory over Manchester United.
The last time the two London teams crossed paths was in February 2019 when the Blues secured a last-eight spot in the Women’s FA Cup after a 3-0 victory. An England brace and a stunning hit from Jonna Andersson ensured our progression through the competition.
Prior to the clash against Arsenal, on Sunday Emma Hayes’ side will make the trip to Bristol before several players are set to take a short break from domestic football to compete in international fixtures.
