Arsenal Women vs Manchester United Women: Injury news, prediction, predicted starting lineups

Arsenal Women will host Manchester United Women at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday in the Women’s Super League and below are the injury news, predicted starting line-ups and predictions.

Man United Women had won and kept clean sheets in their opening five WSL games before they succumbed to a 3-1 defeat to Chelsea Women at the Leigh Sports Village earlier this month.

Marc Skinner’s ladies are anxious to get back to winning ways but doing that against an Arsenal Women’s side that has won all six games, conceding only one goal in the process, is a huge mountain for Manchester United Women to climb but nothing is impossible.
