London rivals Arsenal and Chelsea will battle it out for the right to lift the Vitality Women’s FA Cup when they meet in the 2020/2021 final at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

It has been five years since The Gunners last lifted the famous trophy while Chelsea were last winners back in 2018 when they defeated Arsenal 3-1 in the final in-front of a record crowd of 45,423 at Wembley.

Arsenal head coach Jonas Eidevall confirmed in his pre-match press conference that United States international forward Tobin Heath will not be available for selection due to her ongoing injury. The Gunners otherwise have a clean bill of health other than long term absentees Malin Gut, Viktoria Schnaderbeck and Malin Gut who remain sidelined.

Chelsea manager Emma Hayes will welcome Dutch defender Aniek Nouwen and Danish forward Pernille Harder back into the squad after the pair missed most of November through injury. Hayes will make a final assessment of her squad in the lead up to matchday with several players having returned late in the week from international duty.

The 2020/2021 Vitality Women’s FA Cup final takes place at Wembley Stadium at 2pm on Sunday afternoon. Tickets remain on sale and can be purchased by clicking here.
