Lotte Wubben-Moy and Victoria Pelova return to the starting line-up for Arsenal’s WSL match against West Ham this afternoon live on Arsenal.com. Manu Zinsberger also returns in goal.
McCabe captains the side and starts at right-back with Ilestedt and Wubben-Moy and Catley completing the defence, Victoria Pelova and Kyra Cooney-Cross play in the midfield double pivot with Walti and Little on the bench.
Beth Mead starts on the right, Caitlin Foord on the left and Maanum in the number 10 position with Alessia Russo upfront. Stina Blackstenius doesn’t make the squad due to a small knee knock and Lina Hurtig doesn’t make the 20 player match day squad which illustrates the level of competition at the moment.
