Nathalie Bjorn is sidelined due to injury, so Kadeisha Buchanan steps into the defence following her return from Canada’s Gold Cup duties.

Niamh Charles, Melanie Leupolz, and Guro Reiten also return to the starting lineup after beginning on the bench in the previous match.

Eve Perisset marks her 50th appearance for Chelsea across all competitions.

Just one game short of her 200th, Fran Kirby will start from the bench alongside Catarina Macario, who has scored twice as a substitute in her last two appearances.

Arsenal has made two changes from their Conti Cup semi-final victory against Aston Villa, with Stina Blackstenius replacing Alessia Russo in the attack and Leah Williamson coming in for Laia Codina.
