‘The way we play here is so enjoyable’

Vivianne Miedema has been unstoppable this season.

The forward goes into the Christmas break with 20 goals in 14 appearances this term, including three hat-tricks against Liverpool, Lewes and Reading.
 
Miedema was rewarded for her stellar start to the season with a new contract on Thursday, and she says that there is nowhere else she would rather be.
 
“I think the direction the club is going in, me being happy here, we’re playing good football here - it just made me really appreciate the club here,” the Netherlands international told Arsenal Player.
 
“I just want to be a part of what we’re doing here and keep growing over the next couple of years. I’m happy and I hope we’re just going to do a lot of good stuff at the club.
 
“The way we play is really good but also really enjoyable. Obviously with the way we play, we want to win prizes and I think we’re going to do that in the next couple of years. Then we can only keep growing. As long as we all just enjoy it as much as we do right now, I think we’re definitely going to win prizes.
 
“I’m just really happy that the team is doing well. Obviously because I am a striker, I need to score goals. It’s just kind of my job to do it and I just want to help the team in any way possible. I think that’s just my focus, not really winning awards myself. As a team. I want to win a Champions League, so that’s what we need to do.”

It’s been a good week to be an Arsenal fan.

After Lisa Evans committed her future to the club on Tuesday, Vivianne Miedema extended her contract on Thursday.
 
The duo have already combined for three goals this season and Evans is so pleased that Miedema has agreed a new deal.
 
“I’m delighted she’s signed a new contract,” the Scotland international told Arsenal Player. “Without a doubt. I’m absolutely delighted that she’s chosen to sign.
 
“You can see how important she’s been this season especially, how vital she’s been for her goals. We want top players to be at this club and we want to bring other top players in. That’s the most important thing.
 
“If we want to stay at the top, we need to bring good players in and keep the good players that we have here.”

‘It’s a huge privilege to be part of this group’

Lisa Evans couldn’t be happier than she is right now.

The winger has established herself as a key figure for club and country, helping us go into the Christmas break top of the Women’s Super League and playing a key part in Scotland’s qualification for the 2019 World Cup.
 
Evans has been in fine form for us this season with two goals and five assists already, and was rewarded for her performances with a new contract on Tuesday.
 
“I think the club’s definitely going in the right direction in terms of where we want to be,” she told Arsenal Player.
 
“We obviously want to be back in the Champions League and I feel like this club, this group of players, the staff, we can go to so many more different levels. That was the biggest thing for why I wanted to stay at this amazing club.
 
“We obviously have a small group of players and we can just bounce off each other. We’re really honest with each other and Joe’s an absolutely fantastic coach.
 
“The players that he’s brought in have been massive additions for this club, so we just love coming to work every day. We don’t regard it as work, it’s a privilege to be here, to train and be around the players and coaching staff every day.
 
“It would be an absolute honour and a massive privilege to bring the Women’s Super League title back to north London. It is a massive privilege to be part of this group. It would be a massive honour to bring trophies back.”
