Team News: Hillyerd makes first professional start against Arsenal

Sophie Hillyerd makes her full professional debut as West Ham United Women take on Arsenal in the Barclays Women’s Super League on Sunday evening. 

The 19-year-old goalkeeper came off the bench for her professional debut last weekend against Reading when she replaced Mackenzie Arnold. 

The Australian goalkeeper was nursing a knock in the match against the Royals and has not been deemed fit enough to be named in the squad for the trip to Meadow Park. 

The other change see’s Abbey-Leigh Stringer return to the starting XI for the first time since the 3-1 defeat to Chelsea at the end of September. 

Today's match will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Premier League & Sky Sports Football, with coverage beginning at 6:30pm. 

You can also follow the action across our social media channels. We will also have highlights and exclusive reactions for you after the final whistle.

West Ham United: Hillyerd, Shimizu, Fisk, Longhurst, Smith, Stringer, Hayashi, Brynjarsdottir, Evans, Kyvåg, Asseyi.
Subs: Atkinson, Filis, Houssein, Flannery, Walker.
