We made it five wins from five in the Women’s Super League on Sunday as we beat Everton 3-0 at Meadow Park.
We’re now the only team in the division to have won each of their opening five league fixtures - a welcome statistic for Jonas Eidevall.
Our head coach opted for four changes from the side that lost to Barcelona on Wednesday night, with Lotte Wubben-Moy, Mana Iwabuchi, Nikita Parris and Tobin Heath all stepping up on their return to the starting XI.
We took control of the game early on and found plenty of joy down the left-hand side, where Vivianne Miedema, Heath and Katie McCabe were able to combine and interchange at every attack.
But in the end it was a moment of brilliance from McCabe to open the scoring, controlling the ball on her chest and volleying into the top corner from 20 yards. The Republic of Ireland international has now scored three goals in each of our last three WSL fixtures.
We then went on to double our advantage shortly before the break, with Wubben-Moy climbing high inside the penalty area to head home McCabe’s floated corner delivery.
We continued to dominate play throughout the second half, carving out a number of promising opportunities with Beth Mead coming closest, but our third would arrive late on and in some style too.
After scoring her first Arsenal goal in our defeat against Barcelona earlier this week, Frida Maanum was clearly hungry for more and with a stunning effort from 25 yards, arrowed the ball into the top left corner.
WHAT IT MEANS
