Tickets for the match at 1.30pm on Sunday are still available. Visit http://www.chelseafc.com/teams/chelsea-ladies/ticket-information.html for news.
Then on January 10 it’s Chelsea v Arsenal at Stamford Bridge in the League Cup… and on January 24 it’s Arsenal v Chelsea again, in the second leg of the semi-final.
