- Last season: 3rd (27 points)
- Top signing: Fara Williams
- Key player: Jordan Nobbs
The 2015 Continental Cup winners go into the new season with a point to prove. League winners for nine consecutive seasons from 2004, they have fallen short in recent years despite being crowned champions for the first two seasons of the FA WSL.

The England vice-captain signed a new contract with Arsenal Ladies last month and will be a key player in the Gunners’ push for silverware – if she can avoid injury.

“On a personal note, I just want to stay fit and be a major part of us winning trophies. I know what I can do as a player but I need to be doing that on the pitch and showing what I can do.”
FFT prediction: 2nd
