Arsenal will be ready to pounce on any slip ups from WSL leaders Chelsea on Sunday when they travel to West Ham for their final game of the 2021/22 season.

The Gunners currently trail the Blues by a point, but will be crowned champions of England for the first time since 2019 if they win at West Ham and Chelsea also fail to beat Manchester United.

Arsenal face a West Ham side vying to record a their all-time best WSL finish. The Hammers could end the day anywhere between fifth and fifth, with sixth place or higher securing a best ever top flight finish for the club.

Anna Leat is a doubt as she continues to recover from a knock, while Gilly Flaherty and Lucy Parker are also doubts having sat out the Hammers' last two. The versatile Kate Longhurst could continue to deputise at centre back.

West Ham vs Arsenal score prediction

Arsenal were 4-0 winners in November's reverse fixture, but Olli Harder's West Ham aren't to be underestimated, taking points off Manchester United in March and running Manchester City close in April.

There has been a calmness about Arsenal in recent weeks, confidently going about their business to keep the pressure on Chelsea with a trio of emphatic wins. They should come out on top against the Hammers - but will it be enough to deliver the WSL title?

Prediction: West Ham 0-2 Arsenal
