Arsenal Women head coach Jonas Eidevall believes that Chelsea rearranged fixtures in January to avoid playing without their star striker Sam Kerr when she was away at the Asia Cup. Chelsea moved four points ahead of title rivals Arsenal although the latter have a game in hand. Eidevall revealed that he did not watch their 2-1 win over Tottenham before taking a dig.

“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,” Arsenal Women head coach Jonas Eidevall said. “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. We were one of the few teams who chose to play that weekend,” added Eidevall. I am very disappointed with the lack of transparency in the reasons behind postponing games and how long they take to reschedule.”

“I’ve seen both teams Birmingham and Man United and everyone who has followed our season knows that they have both been beating us,” he added. “I’ve seen their qualities on those occasions. I’ve also seen that when Birmingham was playing at home against us, and I saw it happen to us in the County Cup when United was playing away against us. So it’s two very capable teams and in a very tough league.”
