WHAT HAPPENED 

We ended 2019 in style on Sunday with an impressive 3-1 win over Everton at The Pure Stadium.

Vivianne Miedema was at her very best, scoring twice to maintain our place at the top of the Women’s Super League table, but the afternoon was unfortunately overshadowed by Beth Mead leaving the field on a stretcher.

As ever, we made a fast start and wasted no time in stamping our authority on the game, with Miedema climbing high inside the area to head the ball past Tinja-Riikka Korpela and into the top corner.

That goal saw the Netherlands international equal Kim Little’s club record for scoring in six consecutive WSL fixtures. The latter had provided the assist with a perfectly-weighted cross.

We continued to dominate play in search of a second before the break, but all momentum was killed when Gabrielle George arrived late with a challenge on Mead, forcing the England international to leave the field on a stretcher.

Little then went on to win a penalty and find the bottom right corner to double our advantage, before Miedema scored her second - and our third - of the afternoon by latching onto Leonie Maier’s cross at the far post. Miedema remains the WSL’s top scorer this season with 14 goals in just nine starts.
