To allow for more games the League Cup format was changed from a straight knock-out to a group stage format with the top two advancing to the semi-finals. Arsenal defended their title with a 1–0 win over Birmingham City in a rematch of last year's final. They thus won a double this season of League and League Cup, missing out on the Women's FA Cup.
