Score and latest updates from Wembley

Arsenal are unchanged from the team that won 2-0 at Manchester United on November 21. England defender Leah Williamson (hamstring) remains sidelined, while the USA’s World Cup-winning winner Tobin Heath is also out.

Denmark captain, Pernille Harder, the world’s most expensive women’s player, is fit to return for Chelsea after a minor muscle injury but only enough to be on the bench. Canada’s Jessie Fleming starts in the front three instead. Emma Hayes has also opted for Wales’ Sophie Ingle in holding midfield instead of South Korea’s Ji So-yun.

Otherwise both teams are at full strength. Chelsea are set to be 3-4-3 with Jess Carter as a sweeper, countering Arsenal’s 4-3-3.

Arsenal starting XI (4-3-3): Zinsberger, Wubben-Moy, Beattie, Catley, Mead, Little, Miedema, Maanum, Walti, McCabe, Maritz.

Subs: Williams, Patten, Nobbs, Parris, Foord, Boye, Schnaderbeck, Iwabuchi, Goldie.

Chelsea starting XI (3-4-3): Berger, Bright, Ingle, Carter, Leupolz, Reiten, Kirby, Eriksson, Fleming, Kerr, Cuthbert.

Subs: Musovic, Nouwen, England, Ji, Charles, Harder, Spence, Andersson, Fox.
