John Bayer in temporary charge of Arsenal Ladies
John Bayer in temporary charge of Arsenal Ladies

Arsenal go in search of their first FA Women’s Super League victory of the season today against Liverpool Ladies.

The match is taking place at the Select Security Stadium Widnes and is part of a double-header being shown live on BT sport. Everton Ladies take on Chelsea Ladies in the other match.

John Bayer, Arsenal’s Centre of Excellence technical director, takes charge of the team on a temporary basis until a permanent replacement for Shelley Kerr is appointed.

Arsenal Ladies have made a disappointing start to their FA Women’s League campaign and are currently bottom of the table. It prompted Shelley Kerr to tender her resignation before the FA Cup Final victory over Everton Ladies.

Bayer will be hoping that the FA Cup Final victory will help to galvanise the new look Arsenal Ladies team and squad in their Women’s Super League campaign.

Can Arsenal Ladies recover from a poor start to mount a title challenge.
