Women’s report: Arsenal 1 Chelsea 1

All credit to Harder, who drove at the Arsenal defence from the right of our attack and tried to send a cross into the box. Wubben-Moy threw herself at the ball and her outstretched boot looped it up and over Zinsberger, bouncing into the far corner of the net. A game that had taken so long to get going now had two goals in the final four minutes – and, really, it should have been three before the full-time whistle was blown.

A rattled Arsenal defence was caught out again, as Kerr broke free and sent a lob over the Arsenal keeper. Time seemed to stand still as it came down and bounced agonisingly wide of the far post. What a turnaround that would have been.

Still, let us not forget how tough this Arsenal side is to beat on their own patch. Their only two defeats in the last 33 home league games have both come against Chelsea. It could have been three but a share of the spoils was probably the fairest result, leaving the WSL title race tantalisingly poised.

The Blues are next in action on Wednesday night, when we look to maintain our 100 per cent record in the Continental League Cup with a trip to Championship side London City Lionesses in our final group-stage fixture. Our next WSL match is another London derby, as we host West Ham United on Sunday 6 December.
