The current record is just under 39,000, set at a NLD in 2019, but the Gunners have said they have sold over 45,000 tickets for the blockbuster event. Ticket sales across the league have skyrocketed following England’s successful Euros summer.
Arsenal boss Jonas Eidevall said of potentially breaking the record: “You can really feel the excitement around the game at the moment so it’s amazing to see that translate into a record-breaking attendance - now it’s our job to repay that enthusiasm with a big performance in this crucial clash for our supporters.”
The Gunners are joint top of the WSL table with Manchester United after one round and so a win against Spurs could take them clear.

When is it?

For Arsenal Teyah Goldie is out with an ACL injury, aside from the player the Gunners have a fully fit squad.
Tottenham are in a similar position with a fully fit squad, recording no new injuries from their win over Leicester City in the first round.
Arsenal: Zinsberger; Martiz, Williamson, Rafaelle, Catley; Walti, Little; Mead, Miedema, McCabe; Blackstenius.
Tottenham: Spencer; Turner, Bartip, Zadorsky; Ale, James, Spence, Neville; Naz, Summanen, Ayane.
Arsenal are at home and with a massive crowd behind them but they do face a tough opposition in Tottenham, arguably the ones to watch - along with Liverpool - after round one. The Gunners should just pip their rivals though. Arsenal 2-1 Tottenham.
