Eidevall makes Chelsea dig over fixture postponements as title race hots up


Arsenal Women head coach Jonas Eidevall has suggested Chelsea re-arranged fixtures in January to avoid playing without star striker Sam Kerr while she was away at the Asia Cup. 

WSL leaders Chelsea beat Tottenham 2-1 on Thursday night to move four points ahead of Arsenal in the title race with just a few weeks left of the season.

But Eidevall, whose side have a game in hand and three matches left to play in the league, says he did not watch Chelsea's game and aimed a dig at Arsenal's title rivals.

He said: "I think for me I didn't focus on Chelsea when they were rearranging all their fixtures in January, so Sam Kerr didn't have to miss any games because of the Asia Cup.

    "I don't focus on them now, either. I just focus on Arsenal, getting as many points as possible, and then we see where that leaves us in the table."

    Chelsea asked to have a match against Tottenham postponed in January due to a high number of Covid cases and injuries in their squad.
