The hotly anticipated London derby is set to kick-off later this evening

It's the quarter-final all London football fans have been waiting for. Arsenal will head south to take on the London City Lionesses in the Continental Cup last four in the competition.

Jonas Eidevall's side must dust themselves down after a disappointing 2-1 defeat to West Ham on the weekend which now seems them trail Chelsea six points in the Women's Super League. The upcoming fixture against the south London side is likely to give the Gunners an opportunity to pull themselves back into the game and most likely progress through to the semi-finals.

They will, however, be reunited with some familiar faces at Princes Park as they prepare to see Emma Mukandi and Danielle Carter in Dartford who will be both hopeful of coming away with the upper hand against their former sides. The Lionesses are struggling in the Championship, currently sitting tenth and just two places off the bottom of the league and the last time the two sides met, the Gunners came away with a triumphant 4-0 win.
