If you missed this week’s Daily Cannon Weekly podcast, episode 215, you’ll have missed our Arsenal women’s round-up, but never fear, we have the details below for you.
Elsewhere, Arsenal Women keep steamrollering on, completely unencumbered by the worries that affect most teams.
In the Continental Tires Cup, fresh off the back of their 1-0 win in the Super League against Man United, they beat London City Lionesses 5-0 away from home with a first Arsenal hattrick for Beth Mead, which is a great reward for her as her game has really picked up in the last two years even though she’s always had a lot of promise.
But it was also notable for goals for our Dutch signing, Jill Roord, our latest Bayern Munich pickup, and nice for Emma Mitchell to get a goal, too.
So, a nice easy victory there, and then they followed that up with winning the second leg of their Champions League tie against Fiorentina 2-0, having won the first leg 4-0 away from home.
Kim Little, with the obligatory penalty, and Vivianne Miedema with an obligatory goal because Vivianne Miedema always scores!
Straight off the back of that, only three days later, there was a return to Women’s Premier League action. Arsenal Women at home against Brighton. And that was a 4-0 victory with a lovely interplay goal for Kim Little to score, Miedema with a great finish, and then in the second half, Danielle van de Donk and Jordan Nobbs scored to make it 4-0.
It’s great seeing Nobbs back fit, contributing, and she’s getting back to level she was before that horrible injury which sadly made her miss the Women’s World Cup. She is one of the top players in the Women’s Premier League and I think she’s got the potential to be one of the top players in Europe in her position.
The Arsenal Women just keep rolling on their unbeaten to the start of the season, unless you include preseason friendly defeats when they weren’t remotely fit because other team’s seasons start much earlier.
The juggernaut keeps going.
