Arsenal are desperately clinging to the hope they can still win the title but, in all honesty, the chance went with defeat to Chelsea. But here they are for another week of WSL larks as they look to maintain distance between themselves and fourth. Arsenal will be aiming to get back on track in the West Midlands, not least by bringing the correct socks for the fixture.

Villa are highly unlikely to match last season’s fifth place but are desperate to finish in the top half. They currently sit seventh and will be little nervous after their recent 4-0 defeat to today’s opponents in the Conti Cup. The very exciting news is that Carla Ward’s side are hosting the match at Villa Park and will be hoping for a big as part of Women’s Football Weekend.

Key events

Wubben-Moy completely forgets to track Leon’s run into the box as she latches onto a smart pass from Nobbs. The Canadian pulls the ball back to Salmon who steers into the corner at the first time of asking.

GOAL! Aston Villa 1-0 Arsenal (Salmon 36)

It is against the run of play but Salmon produces a calm finish.

32 mins: Arsenal win a corner on the left. Mead comes over to take and swing the ball to the back post and a Villa head flicks it clear.

Villa are very organised at the back and are making Arsenal work hard for the chances.

30 mins: Russo does finally get a chance but her header from Mead’s cross lacks power and is easily caught by Leat.

28 mins: Fox gets down the right and pings the ball back into the box. It eventually falls to Maanum but her fierce strike is blocked.

Russo has barely had a kick so far. There are a lot of Villa defenders, making it very hard for Arsenal to find their central striker.

26 mins: Aston Villa make it into the Arsenal box for the first time in the match. Salmon puts in a cross and the ball hits Wubben-Moy on the hand after bouncing up off her boot. Villa want a penalty but they are rightly told that ain’t happening.

24 mins: It should be said that Villa boss Ward is not in the dugout today, instead watching from the stands because she is feeling under the weather.

Russo tries to latch onto a pass from Maanum but Leat is out quickly to claim.

22 mins: There’s a delay with Mayling receiving treatment on the pitch. The other players use the time to get some instructions from the sidelines.

20 mins: Mead is found on the overlap and cuts inside to give herself space to shoot from around six yards but it whacks Turner in the midriff.

18 mins: Villa are doing quite well at slowing things down whenever Arsenal get on top.

16 mins: Little gets the ball around 25 yards from goal and she decides to test Leat, who is Villa’s second choice, but the goalkeeper gets down easily to stop.

Arsenal produce a really slick move from back to front but Fox’s cross is headed clear. The Gunners look the better team.

14 mins: Williamson passes the ball straight to Nobbs for reasons unknown and Villa break but it breaks down before they reach the Arsenal box. There have been some low quality passing out of defence today.

12 mins: Leat operates as a centre-back while Villa have possession at the back. They knock it around for a while until it becomes clear they cannot find a pass out of the back and Leat just pings it clear.

10 mins: Mead whips in a corner from the left. The ball is cleared as far as Little but her shot is weak, although it does earn another corner thanks to a deflection. The second corner results in a bit of pinball until Pacheco whacks the ball clear.

8 mins: Villa are enjoying a spell of possession but it mainly involves passing between their own defence and they make no progress.

6 mins: “Do we know why were they late?” asks Cara Riggall. “Do you think someone forgot the socks again?”

Traffic-related, I believe.

In case you were wondering, Arsenal have all the right kit on this week. Although it does look like an Aston Villa away kit from the early 90s.

4 mins: Arsenal are looking to control this match with some patient buildup play. Villa are happy to give the ball at the moment.

2 mins: Leat sends a dreadful kick straight to Mead just outside the box but the winger’s pass is wayward to let Villa off in the early stages.

There is another chance for Arsenal soon after as Maanum collects a pass inside the box but she drags her shot wide.

Villa have barely touched the ball.

Kick off

Peep! Peep! Peep! Here we go!

There is a light show, which every seems to be enjoying. Here comes the teams …

Ebony Salmon starts up top for Aston Villa, leading to Rachel Daly dropping back into midfield. Will Villa be a touch more direct today?

Chelsea defeated West Ham.

Laura Wienroither is back for Arsenal after a recovering from an ACL injury.
