Arsenal manager Joe Montemurro 'isn't scared' of Chelsea's new star striker Sam Kerr ahead of title showdown

Arsenal manager Joe Montemurro has said he 'isn't scared' of Chelsea's Sam Kerr ahead of their crunch match with the Blues this weekend.

The huge Women's Super League clash takes place on Sunday and defending champions Arsenal will be hoping to seek revenge after Emma Hayes' side beat them 2-1 in October.

This will be the first time Kerr has played against The Gunners since joining the WSL in November.

Montemurro said: “It’s not for me to comment about other teams and what they do and how they do it, but the reality is that Chelsea have a number of very, very good players and obviously Sam Kerr is a component of that.

“We go into the game worrying about ourselves, so that’s why I don’t feel scared about who we play. We worry about how we’re going to play, and how we’re going to command and dictate the game.

“I don’t look at individual players or individual scenarios, we just look at making sure we play the way we want to play.

“We’re a team that wants the ball and wants to keep the ball and when we have the opportunity to get comfortable and play the way we want to play, I’m sure we’ll find the spaces to exploit them.”
