Arsenal played Tottenham at the Tottenham stadium on Sunday in front of a record-breaking 38,262 fans, running out 2-0 winners thanks to second half goals from Kim Little and Vivianne Miedema.
In what was a closer contest than many Arsenal fans expected, Spurs players resorted to kicking lumps out of Arsenal players, finishing the game with 16 fouls to Arsenal’s 3.
In the end, their Tottenham ways made no difference and Arsenal took all three points to keep themselves in third place, behind City in second on goal difference and one point behind Chelsea at the top of the table.
Here are the highlights from the game:
“A pleasing thing for me was that our usual fans who come to Borehamwood will have seen some new faces. I hope we’ve whet their appetite to come back.
“We were our own worst enemy today, especially in the first half, with some silly errors and taking a few risks. But I’m very proud of the way we came out in the second half.
“I’d be lying to you, being a Gooner, if I said it wasn’t a great occasion for us.”
“It’s very disappointing not to get the three points because that’s what it’s all about, but credit to Arsenal – they are champions for a reason.
“We were unfortunate not to come in at half-time 1-0 up but [we] didn’t put those chances away. I’m extremely proud and pleased with every single one of our players.
“We’ve had the opportunity to play at Stamford Bridge, we’ve had to opportunity to play at the London Stadium, where we’d been the underdogs, where we hadn’t had our big crowd behind us, but I thought we managed the occasion really well.
“I don’t think the players were fazed at all with 38,000 people behind them. I thought the girls were absolutely outstanding – it is just disappointing to concede those two goals.”
