Arsenal star Mead says Chelsea will be toughest test as they look to continue winning run

BETH MEAD says Chelsea will be Arsenal’s toughest test yet ahead of today’s derby.

The Gunners boast a 100 per cent record from their three league games but their perfect run could be upset when they travel to Kingsmeadow this afternoon.

Chelsea, who dropped two points in a shock draw to Brighton three weeks ago, have beaten Arsenal twice in their last three clashes.

And they knocked the Gunners out of the FA Cup in their last meeting in February 3-0, thanks to a Bethany England double and a goal from Jonna Andersson.

The Blues also handed the reigning WSL champions one of their only two defeats in the league last season.

That momentarily threw last year’s title race wide open with their 2-1 success in January coming thanks to goals from Erin Cuthbert.

Gunners forward Mead, 24, said: “Every game is a tough test in this league.

“But I think Chelsea have always been one of the hardest teams that we have played against.

“It has always been a tough and incredibly physical game so we expect it to be a really big test against them.

“They have individual players perfect for each position and they are a powerful team and physically very strong.

“This can be a make-or-break game because we learnt from last season how a good start in the league is so important.

“As players, we all know each other from the international team but it is always a rough-and-tumble game — there is a definite rivalry.”
