Arsenal are facing Wolfsburg tonight but Williamson will not be there

And Arsenal will have to go ahead with the contest without a key player in the form of Williamson, who was forced off injured with a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament injury last month.

But while the England captain will not be on the pitch, she has endeared herself to the Gunners faithful across the road from the Emirates Stadium.

There, the 26-year-old has been pulling pints for fans before the match with videos circulating on social media.

Punters were left shocked at the Tollington Arms, a popular pub for Arsenal fans to drink at prior to kick-off.

Williamson joined bar staff behind the bar, serving drinks as several phones were out videoing and taking pictures.

The centre-back is set to miss the Women’s World Cup this summer in a cruel blow to the Lionesses hero.


Williamson was central to the England side that won the European Championship in the summer, captaining them to glory.

Arsenal are on the brink of reaching the Champions League final but must overcome a difficult Wolfsburg side on Monday evening.

The Emirates has sold out for the semi-final clash, where the winner will meet Barcelona in the final.

The Spanish side beat Chelsea 2-1 on aggregate while Arsenal are aiming to win the competition for the second time in their history.

They landed victory in 2007 but have since struggled in the tournament, failing to reach a final since.

Wolfsburg, meanwhile, have been tricky customers in the past and have reached the final five times, winning the Champions League twice in 2013 and 2014 respectively.

But Arsenal have already lifted silverware this season when Jonas Eidevall’s side beat Chelsea in the Women’s League Cup in March.
