Arsenal women smashed Tottenham 3-0 on Saturday and in every metric they totally and utterly dominated their north London rivals.
Goals from Caitlin Foord (assist Noelle Maritz), Vivianne Miedema (Katie McCabe) and Katie McCabe herself saw Arsenal come away from the Tottenham Hotspur toilet bowl with all three points and Tottenham well and truly vanquished.
It wasn’t just the scoreline that saw Arsenal dominate the game, it was basically every other metric you can think of:
You can see all three goals below:
– Katie McCabe has 10 assists in 1276mins of league action this term, an average of 128mins per assist. Among those with at least 1000mins played, the only players with a better assist-rate in a single seasons are Carney: 109 mins/assist in 16-17 & Mead: 127 mins/assist in 18-19

The result, which was Arsenal’s fourth consecutive FA WSL win without conceding a goal, sees Arsenal in fourth place, three points behind Man United, but with a game in hand.
“We were playing great football in September, October and November but we’re definitely finding good rhythm now,” Montemurro told reporters after the game.
“We can’t rely on other results and the possibilities of other teams, we just have to worry about what we’re doing.
“We just have to follow our week by week processes and hopefully things will fall into place for us.”
Spurs boss Rehanne Skinner said her side’s downfall came about because they did not do enough in the first half.
“To be honest, we were maybe a bit tentative in the first half. We could’ve been a bit more forceful in putting Arsenal under pressure,” she said.
“We definitely grew into the game which is positive, we pushed higher up the half and that created some good opportunities for us.
“But by the time we created these opportunities, we were probably in a position where we couldn’t get back into the game.”
