No team news from either team yet so still waiting on that. Arsenal are coming off a 5-2 loss against Manchester City and Bristol's last match was a close 1-0 win over Yeovil.

Arsenal will be the favourites today but they do have a history of being frustrated by teams capable of solid defending so if Bristol could hold out long enough you never know.

arsenal actually have a proper back four with four defenders. A genuine surprise. Looks like Bristol will go with a back 3

Ok the match is underway.

I actually quite like this purple Bristol kit. Sarah Garratt is the referee I'm pretty sure I've seen her a few times

Lauren hemp nearly makes it into the box but rose is there with a good challenge (2)

Bristol pressing high early on. Humphrey plays a good cross along the box but no one gets on the end of it (3)

Bristol doing well so far. Winning the ball back high up the pitch. O'reilly's long ball forward to miedema goes out of play (4)

O'reilly is flagged offside. Both teams getting forward well but staying strong in defence (5)
