Tim I hope you’ll be able to report afterwards on Stina’s absence. As an arsenal fan I’m quite panicked about us having injured a new signing 😅 sincerely hope that is not the case.

She was ill, same with Jen and Fran.

Cheers Tim. That answers my question.

A very strong starting 11 but again looking light in attacking options from the bench.
Is Fran injured again? We brought her back from loan and she is not even understudy to Manu while Lyds is away!
