    Beth Mead is denied by a fine low save from Ann-Katrin Berger. Arsenal are really going for it now.

  13. GOAL: Chelsea 2-1 Arsenal

    Maria Thorisdottir (86 mins)

    Thorisdottir celly

    That's a terrific goal and it might be the winner! Chelsea's subs combine as Ramona Bachmann turns and lays the ball off to Maria Thorisdottir, who curls a beauty in to the corner of the net from inside the D.

    The Chelsea bench go crazy, jumping all over each other. It's a potentially massive moment in this season's title race, even so early in the campaign.

  14. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Arsenal

    The Blues' Switzerland forward Ramona Bachmann, on as a substitute, shoots low but straight at the keeper.

    Ji injury

    This is a shame. Ji So-Yun is hurt and can't continue. She hobbles off.

    She's been everywhere today for Chelsea. Really lively and pulling the strings.

  16. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Arsenal

    Bright and Little

    Both sides are trying to win this, as we enter the final 12 minutes or so of the 90.

    Ji So-Yun drags another strike wide from outside the box.

  17. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Arsenal

    Maren Mjelde sends a teasing cross to the far post that finds Ji So-Yun, but the Chelsea playmaker can't quite get her effort on target.

  18. CLOSE!

    Chelsea 1-1 Arsenal

    Arsenal's Beth Mead cuts on to her right boot and bends a shot from outside the box that goes just wide of the far post.

  19. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Arsenal

    Fran Kirby is looking to use her pace to get in behind the Arsenal backline, but Leah Williamson makes a vital, top-class tackle to halt her run.

    Brilliant from both Lionesses there.

  20. Post update

    Chelsea 1-1 Arsenal

    But Chelsea's corner comes to nothing as there's a foul in the box as the ball comes in.
