With seven games still to play in the league, Vivianne Miedema made history by becoming the highest-scoring forward in a single season with 16 goals from just 13 games.
Sitting level with Ellen White on 15 goals for the record of most goals scored in a single season, Miedema took just two minutes on Sunday to net against Reading, via a deflected strike, claiming the record for herself.
This season she has 23 goals in just 17 starts across all competitions (and one sub appearance).
We profiled Miedema when she arrived, calling her a ‘natural born killer’ but her goalscoring this season is simply off the charts. Over the course of her club and international career she has scored 228 goals in 243 games.
Miedema was born in Hoogeveen, the Netherlands, in 1996 and signed for SC Heerenveen at 14. She made her debut at 15 and won top goalscorer in BeNe League for 2013/14 with 41 goals in 26 games.
In September 2013, the then-teenager made her senior debut for the Netherlands against Albania.
She went on to become top scorer at the 2014 UEFA u19 Championship and also collected the Golden Player award.
She became one of her country’s integral players before she was 21.
The forward then spent three years at SC Heerenveen, scoring a whopping 78 goals in 69 appearances before moving on to Bayern Munich in June 2014.
In 2014/15, Miedema’s Bayern side went unbeaten in the Bundesliga and won their first title since 1976.
She signed for Arsenal in May 2017 and has scored 30 goals in just 34 games so far.
