Arsenal should aim for “perfection” in its efforts to stop it. Sam Kerr According to Jonas Eidevall, he’s in the Continental Tire League Cup final against Chelsea on Sunday.

Kerr’s goal in the Blues’ 2-0 fifth-round win over the Gunners in last weekend’s FA Cup was his 81st goal in 100 games for Chelsea, and his 10th since the start of this year.

Arsenal boss Eidevall said: “I think Sam Kerr is a very good player of course, but when you play with a team like Chelsea, you can’t just focus on one player.

“It’s about how you collectively work and how you stop it.

“In the game we played last Sunday, you could see the number of touches and situations Sam Kerr had, it wasn’t much.

“I think we did a really good job for most of the game, and it’s about continuing to do it and doing it until it’s perfect this time.”

Chelsea smash Kerr while Arsenal lack two star forwards. Beth Mead and Vivianne Miedema.

Both suffered ACL injuries in the last few weeks of 2022 and the January transfer window saw Arsenal fail to bring in a new striker with their world record bid for Manchester United. Alessia Russo is rejected.

Eidevall – Women’s side in a three-game undefeated streak Super League This includes being held 1-1 by Chelsea at home due to a late Kerr goal – when asked about the difficulty of pulling Mead and Miedema aside, he said: “It’s about focusing on possibilities, not problems.

“Some things you can’t change and one of the things you can’t change is the squad, for example when the transfer window is over.

“But what you can change is the way we attack together and see those possibilities. And I think there were some really good elements of the game we played last Sunday, but there were also things that you can see here as we could work better together and make better use of our players on the field and their strengths.

“As a team we need to use it more often and I think that and that’s what can make us better in the future.”

“The things we can control, how we do things, how we play, how we act, what our mindset is, and we need to give 100 percent of our focus to that.

“If we do it well enough, I believe we have a good chance of winning a trophy.”

Arsenal last held a silver medal in 2019 since Emma Hayes’ Chelsea won three WSL titles, two FA Cups and two League Cups.

When Eidevall, who has been in charge of the Gunners since the summer of 2021, was asked if he feels pressured by the length of time since Arsenal last won a trophy, he replied: “From a historical perspective, no.

“Of course I feel pressure about it as we want to get it done and get the most out of the final because when it means a lot to you, it will always turn into terms of feeling pressure.

“I care a lot about what we do on Sunday, so of course I feel that pressure. But that’s part of being a manager at this level.”

Striker Lina Hurtig may make a comeback from injury at the sellout at Selhurst Park, which will set the Women’s League Cup final attendance record.

With nearly 24,000 tickets held, the record 8,004 attendances will be broken following last season’s final at the Cherry Red Records Stadium, where Manchester City beat Chelsea 3-1.
