Cooney-Cross starts for Arsenal against Manchester City Women

Kyra Cooney-Cross starts for Arsenal in the FA Cup 5th round tie against Manchester City this afternoon. Sabrina D’Angelo starts in goal behind a back four of Emily Fox, Leah Williamson, who captains the team, Lotte Wubben-Moy and Katie McCabe.

Cooney-Cross partners Pelova in midfield with Mead and Foord on the wings and Frida Maanum as a 10 and Alessia Russo upfront. Vivianne Miedema is not in the squad due to a knee irritation and will be given a couple of weeks rest in the hope it will settle down.

14.D’Angelo; 2.Fox, 6.Williamson(c), 3.Wubben-Moy, 15.McCabe; 21.Pelova, 32.Cooney-Cross; 9.Mead, 12.Maanum, 19.Foord; 23.Russo.

Subs: 1.Zinsberger, 7.Catley, 10.Little, 13.Walti, 24.Lacasse, 25.Blackstenius, 27.Codina, 28.Ilestedt, 40.Williams

Interesting that Wally’s not starting, think a lot will rest on how well that middle three of Pelova, Cooney-Cross and Maanum do

Agreed on all points. I also wonder if us having Maanum and City *not* having Jill Roord will be key as well.
Plus Maanum will be up against Hasegawa a lot. I know most worry about the triple threat of Shaw and Kelly and Hemp, but the only City player that scares me is Yui Hasegawa.


Seems strange that he is dropped Walti


No one else has Ilestedt being on the bench


They must not be Licensed to Ilestedt

Happy to see KCC starting. Good luck to her, MVP (Pelova) and Wonder Woman (Frida). Sabs, give yourself a great sendoff before the Gold Cup. Go girls! Arsenal Women for the win!

Well that was dismal. We don’t seem to have got any better since Joe left, in fact we seem to be going backwards now ☹️
