Our 4-0 victory over Hoffenheim proved to be a special night for Tobin Heath as she scored her first goal in Arsenal colours.
The USA international combined wonderfully with Vivianne Miedema to make it 2-0 on the stroke of half-time, so it’s no surprise that she’s a huge admirer of the ‘GOAT’.
“I think we are just getting started!” Heath told Arsenal.com.
“Her quality just speaks for itself, and the quality of the frontline in general. We have a lot of depth, a lot of options and a lot of ways that we can hurt teams so just getting those relationships and reputation that we need both on the training ground and in games, I think we are going to fire in a lot of ways.
“[Viv] is definitely a cerebral player and I think it’s easy to co-exist in that space when you have a good football understanding and that offensive threat. The amount of diversity we have in the attack is something that’s scary.
“I’ve been waiting a bit for [my first goal] but I’m just thrilled with the result. The team showed a lot of character, bouncing back from the game in Barcelona and to get not only my goal, but to win the game 4-0, is perfect.”
