'I'm looking forward to working with Miedema'

Nikita Parris

When Nikita Parris left Manchester City for Lyon in 2019, she did so as the Women's Super League's record goalscorer.

But two years later she returns to find that someone else has taken her crown - and now they're going to be scoring goals for the same team.

"Every forward wants to score goals, and me and [Vivianne] Miedema are no different," she said. "But I feel the most important thing is that we do the right thing for the team in the moment, regardless of who's in front of goal or who gives the final pass or final shot.

"Whoever's taking it has got to have the best interest of the football team winning the football game. That's the most important thing and I'm sure Miedema has the same view. She's an unbelievable striker and I'm looking forward to working with her as well as playing with her.

"There's been many years where we've played against each other and I'm sure that I'll learn things from her as well as she'll learn things from me going forward. Ultimately I hope that we can create a great partnership with the rest of the forwards in order to push Arsenal Football Club forward.

"The most important thing is that we all contribute to Arsenal winning football games, and that we bring our best football both in training and in matches in order to do that.

"The league's much stronger nowadays in the WSL. I only left two years ago but the league's come on in leaps and bounds. I'm looking forward to being back and contributing to more assists, more goals, to push us forward."
