Everton Ladies play against Arsenal on Sunday, an hour before Everton’s men’s team plays Manchester United.

The last time these two teams squared off on November 18th, interim manager Jen Herst was at the helm after former manager Andy Spence stepped down. The Blues suffered a 4-0 defeat, which is to be expected when playing against a team that not only has the top goalscorer of the WSL (Vivianne Miedema with 20) but also the fourth-top goalscorer (Daniëlle van de Donk with 10). The Gunners dominated possession at 69%.

Arsenal currently sit in first place and have won their last five games, while Everton are in 10th place with one win in their last five games.

Manager Willie Kirk said in his post-match comments on Wednesday night that Everton want to give it their all for the last three games of the season:

“We want to get positive results to help with our recruitment this summer. We still have a lot to play for.”

The match will be televised by BBC Red Button, just like it was back in November! Everton has only been televised by the BBC this season when they play against Arsenal — imagine that!

Predicted Lineup:

Kirstie Levell; Emma Brownlie, Megan Finnigan, Siri Worm; Angharad James, Abbey Stringer, Taylor Hinds, Danielle Turner, Inessa Kaagman, Simone Magill, Chantelle Boye-Hlorkah

Defender Gabby George was missing from last game’s lineup due to an injury she picked up in the defeat against Yeovil Town. Before Wednesday’s match, she had started every game along with wearing the Captain’s armband for several of them, so she will be sorely missed.

Prediction:

5-0, Arsenal
