    Man Utd 0-0 Arsenal

    Manchester United v Arsenal

    Arsenal are starting to boss possession but haven't got the ball into star-striker Vivianne Miedema just yet.

    You feel if United have got any real chance of keeping Arsenal out tonight, they've got to keep her off the ball.

    She's been very quiet so far.

  2. Post update

    Man Utd 0-0 Arsenal

    I've just seen a replay of Ella Toone's opportunity, I feel like I didn't give the chance justice.

    That was a free header from six-yards out. Arsenal are lucky to have not fallen behind there.

    Lindsay Johnson

    Ex-England defender on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    I thought it was in. What a ball in from Jess Sigsworth but Ella Toone couldn't direct the header on goal.

    What an opportunity!

    You only get so many chances against these top sides and Ella Toone will be disappointed.

  4. CLOSE!

    Man Utd 0-0 Arsenal

    Jessica Sigsworth is first onto a loose ball and drives forward.

    She finds Ella Toone with a deep cross, but the United number 7 can't put her diving header on target.

    First opportunity of note.

  5. Post update

    Man Utd 0-0 Arsenal

    Arsenal manager Joe Montemurro has seen enough, he's now on the touchline barking out tactics.

    The Australian turned 50 on Friday. A win here tonight would make a fine late birthday present.

    Man Utd 0-0 Arsenal

    A quality left-back there Tom.

    And Patrice Evra will be impressed with United's full-back Amy Turner, she's been controlling her flank so far as United continue on the front foot.

  7. 'I love this game'

    Man Utd 0-0 Arsenal

    The hosts had such a good record at home last season, only dropping two points all campaign.

    And it's United who are on the front foot straight away as Jessica Sigsworth sees her low cross gathered by Arsenal keeper Manuela Zinsberger.

  9. Perfect football conditions

    Manchester United's first home WSL match comes on a gorgeous Monday evening under a blue September sky. One stand is almost full, while there are a smattering of Arsenal fans behind one goal and 15 United flags draped in the empty terrace behind the other.

    'Casey Stoney's barmy army' was the chant from the home fans as the players warmed up.

  10. KICK-OFF

    United in red, Arsenal in yellow, this one's going to be a classic right?

    Arsenal's Beth Mead gets us under way.

  11. Post update

    Man Utd v Arsenal (19:30 BST)

    The teams are out, the floodlights are shining and the fans are making plenty of noise.

    This is your two minute warning, kick-off is just around the corner.

    England star Jordan Nobbs makes her first start for Arsenal since her recovery from an ACL injury that sidelined her last November. She comes in for the Netherlands' Danielle van de Donk as the Gunners' only change from Thursday's win at Fiorentina.

    Man Utd change two from last weekend's opening defeat at Man City, with Amy Turner and Kirsty Smith replacing overseas summer signings Jackie Groenen and Lotta Okvist. Groenen has an unspecified knock, while Sweden's Okvist suffered concussion in training at the weekend.

    Man Utd XI: Earps, Smith, McManus, M Turner, A Turner, Galton, Zelem, Ladd, Toone, Sigsworth, Ross

    Arsenal XI: Zinsberger, Maier, Williamson, Beattie, McCabe, Roord, Nobbs, Little, Evans, Miedema, Mead.

  13. The Red Devils’ rise to the top

    Man Utd v Arsenal (19:30 BST)

    What a past 18 months it’s been for Manchester United Women. They’ve gone from no first-team squad to WSL members in little over a year.

    But, after Casey Stoney - who made 39 appearances for Arsenal as a player - was given the manager's job in June 2018, the Red Devils have raced into the top tier, gaining promotion in their first season and dropping just four points along the way.

    Man Utd v Arsenal (19:30 BST)

    Yes, tonight, Manchester United face Arsenal in the final game of match week two in the WSL.

    It's United's first home game as a WSL club and it's a tasty one too as they take on the champions.

  15. A new rivalry dawns

    Man Utd v Arsenal (19:30 BST)

    Arsene Wenger and Sir Alex Ferguson

    Manchester United v Arsenal. Memories of cup finals, title races and Ferguson against Wenger.

    Now a new chapter in the rivalry will begin - in the Women's Super League.
