Arsenal midfielder Jordan Nobbs has said that Caitlin Foord is a breath of fresh air at the club.

The Australian international signed for The Gunners in January and scored a goal on her debut against Lewes last weekend.

Nobbs said: "She’s been a breath of fresh air, even in training with her work ethic. She wants to play little short balls and runs in behind and she’s obviously a powerful player. 

"To perform like she did at the weekend with very few training sessions under her belt shows what a key part of our squad she’ll be and what a great asset she’ll be for Joe to work with."

Nobbs will captain Arsenal in tonight's Continental League Cup final against Chelsea and her team will be going for their sixth title.

"To wear the Arsenal shirt anyway is a privilege, and obviously it’s my 10th year at the club, so whenever I get to follow in the footsteps of Jayne Ludlow, Kim Little, Kelly Smith and Alex Scott is an absolute honour.

"To be a part of that and Joe’s squad makes it such a great place to be, and if I could wish for anything from my career, I’d do exactly the same as I’ve done because I’ve enjoyed every minute of being at Arsenal."

Arsenal v Chelsea kicks off at 5.30pm.
