Arsenal Women are just 3,000 tickets away from selling out Emirates Stadium for the second time in the club’s history.

The Gunners face Chelsea on Sunday, December 10 in N5, with the London derby attracting large numbers to the Emirates.

Six-time WSL champions Chelsea sit three points clear of Arsenal at the top of the table, and are yet to taste defeat in league or cup so far this season.

Emma Hayes’ side have sold out their away allocation at Emirates Stadium, as the two dominant sides in the history of the WSL go head to head.

Much has been said about Hayes’ touchline battles with Jonas Eidevall, but the two will have to savour this season’s meetings, with Hayes set to leave Chelsea at the end of the season to coach the United States Women’s National Team.

Sam Kerr’s late header saw Chelsea snatch a 1-1 draw at the Emirates last season. The Blues beat Arsenal twice later on in the season at Kingsmeadow in the WSL and FA Cup, but it was Jonas Eidevall’s team who were victorious in the Conti Cup final at Selhurst Park against Chelsea.

It is a fixture that simply never fails to live up to expectations, so make sure to get your tickets here.
