Another game, another brace for Vivianne Miedema.
Our Netherlands international’s incredible scoring record continued on Sunday as we beat Everton to finish 2019 on top of the WSL table.
Miedema equalled Kim Little’s club record for scoring in six consecutive league fixtures - but stressed the result was the most important thing.
“I am really pleased with the result and to end the year with a win. It was not an easy game at all," she said.
“We knew that Everton would make it very difficult for us, and they did. The pitch was also difficult to play our game on, but we adjusted well and got the win and that is what is important.
“I have been really happy with my form so far this season, scoring goals to help the team and we are in a good place in the league.
“We have a break from the league now over Christmas, which is really good, and I am looking forward to some time away to relax.
“I will go home for Christmas, and I am looking forward to seeing family and recharging for the second half of the season.
“The club have given us six days off and I think the team are looking forward to it.”
