It’s a bit of a treat on TV at the moment. Last night we had on Arsenal TV a wonderful victory over Chelsea in the under 23 league, leaving the table looking like this
|1||Manchester City U23||18||11||3||4||43||27||16||36|
|2||West Ham United U23||17||11||2||4||42||22||20||35|
It really was good to watch, and if you have not seen an under 23 game I would strongly recommend it – although I must say it took my laptop a little while to make the connection.
Anyway in a few minutes time (which is why I am rushing this little article along) Arsenal are playing Manchester United in the super league, kick off 1230 GMT. It’s on Sky. Here’s the table as it stands before the game…
|3||Manchester United Women||12||7||3||2||27||13||14||24|
|4||Tottenham Hotspur Women||12||6||3||3||13||11||2||21|
|5||Manchester City Women||12||6||2||4||29||19||10||20|
|7||West Ham United Women||12||4||5||3||16||14||2||17|
|8||Brighton and Hove Albion Women||13||5||1||7||13||18||-5||16|
|9||Aston Villa Women||12||4||1||7||8||26||-18||13|
|11||Leicester City Women||13||2||0||11||7||26||-19||6|
|12||Birmingham City Women||13||1||1||11||8||34||-26||4|
So very much first v third. Following this at the end of the week we play Chelsea away and then after that Chelsea play Manchester City.
Manchester United have won their last four games and they knocked us out of the Continental Cup (a competition that we used to take as our own personal property).
But one thing this team does is recover, as we did in the last game beating Brighton after going behind.
This is the line up supplied by the Guardian (my TV set is not in the same room as my computer which is why I am rushing and not picking up info from Sky).
Maritz, Beattie, Catley, McCabe,
Little, Mead, Miedema,
However I know that Williamson is not playing because of having played so many games of late. The subs are Williams, Boye, Souza, Wienroither, Maanum, Foord, Parris, Blackstenius.
So, very sorry for the very brief coverage, but do hope that gives you enough time to get the TV on if you are not at the stadium.
If you can’t get to a TV set or don’t have Sky or whichever channel is running it in your country, there are regular updates on the Guardian website, and I suspect on Arsenal TV although I haven’t checked the website.
