Dominique Janssen joined Arsenal from German side SGS Essen in July 2015

Arsenal Ladies were forced to settle for a draw against Birmingham City Ladies at Boreham Wood.

The visitors began brightly and Remi Allen almost opened the scoring when she met Melissa Lawley's cross, but struck the bar from six yards out.

Dan Carter's volley was well saved by Birmingham keeper Sophie Baggaley as Arsenal pushed forward.

With the last kick of the match, Dominique Janssen saw her free-kick strike the bar, with Baggaley beaten.

The hosts remain third in the table, five points behind league leaders Manchester City - having played a game more - while Birmingham moved level on points with Liverpool.
