Arsenal host West Ham United on Wednesday night in their game in hand in the Women's Super League.

Arsenal with a win can go three points clear of Manchester United in third with the Gunners having a better goal difference to boost. 

Viktoria Schnaderbeck, Jennifer Beattie and Lisa Evans will  be out for the game with injury but the Gunners are boosted by the return of Steph Catley and Noelle Maritz who were on the bench for Sunday's 2-0 win over Brighton. 

West Ham have had an upturn in form and are unbeaten in their last four matches in all competitions including a 5-0 away win at Reading in the Women's Super League. 

The last time the two teams met was in September at the Chigwell Construction Stadium with Arsenal winning 9-1.
