Jennifer Beattie has urged Arsenal Ladies to end the season on a high by claiming a second successive League and Cup double.
The Gunners won The FA WSL title last week and they will take on Birmingham City Ladies in the Continental Cup Final on Wednesday night.
Arsenal beat the Blues in last season’s Final and Beattie is aiming for a similar outcome again.
She said: “I think we deserved to win the League over the whole campaign and now we want to win this Cup to round the season off.
“We have put in some really good performances in the League but it was disappointing not to reach The FA Women’s Cup Final because that is one of the most exciting days in English football.
“But we've got this Final to think about and the Champions League as well so we are looking to go out on a high.”
Capable of playing both at full-back and as a striker, Beattie has become a key player for Arsenal during her three years in London.
The Scottish international scored a Champions League hat-trick against Barcelona last week and she has plundered three goals in this season’s Continental Cup, one each against Liverpool, Chelsea and Bristol Academy.
She has been impressed with her side’s displays in this competition and wants them to add more silverware to their ever-growing trophy cabinet.
Beattie added: “I think we have played quite well in this competition and we have scored a lot of goals. We played particularly well against Bristol in the Semi-Final so hopefully we can bring that into The Final.
“We have won so many trophies over the years and as a group of players we want to keep that going.
“The winning mentality is infectious. We go into each game looking to get the three points or into the next round of a Cup and now all our eyes are on winning the Continental Cup."
