While Vivianne Miedema has been the talk of the women’s game this season for her goalscoring exploits, like Thierry Henry, her assist record is often overlooked.

Currently away on international duty, where she scored her 56th the goal in 73 games for the Netherlands, Miedema has nine league assists for Arsenal this season in addition to 20 league goals in just 17 games.

That, however, is only enough to take her to second in the assists chart, sandwiched between Katie McCabe (8) and Beth Mead at the top of the charts on 10.

The women’s game is currently on an international break at the minute that has already put an end to goalkeeper Pauline Peyraud-Magnin’s season after she suffered a dislocated patella.

Next weekend sees the sides return for the FA Cup but, as Arsenal are already out of that competition, the Gunners don’t play again until 21 April against Everton.

With three games remaining, two wins will seal the title for Joe Montemurro’s side after they confirmed Champions League football last weekend when they beat Birmingham 1-0.
