Arsenal were at home to West Ham in the new Sunday evening slot for Sky Sports and defeated West Ham 4-0 thanks to a Kim Little brace, another Beth Mead special plus an own goal.

November is another busy month with five games in three weeks.

Jonas Eidevall carried on rotating his squad while managing to keep winning and keeping injuries to a minimum.

This is a credit to the Medicine and Sports science team, led by Gary Lewin, with a top class physio in Emma Saunders.

The staring XI was Zinsberger; Maritz, Williamson, Wubben-Moy, McCabe; Maanum, Little, Iwabuchi; Parris, Foord, Mead.

Jennifer Beattie, Tobin Heath and Lydia Williams missed out on the game due to injury, even though Williams was named on the bench.

The Arsenal squad was still strong, with eight players named as substitutes, but no Academy players.

They were involved in a game against West Ham earlier in the day.

Kim Little scored her 50th FA WSL goal for the club and it cannot be underestimated how good the Scottish playmaker is.

With the game looking to reach half-time with a 0-0 scoreline the same as it went in the previous week against Brighton, Little went on a run around the West Ham defence and finished with power and precision.

Then, she did it again to score goal number 50.

She is a world class talent that does not always get the recognition she deserves from fans, but her technical leadership puts her on par with the best number 10s that have graced the game.

Beth Mead carried on her excellent form to score the third goal on the break with a delicate chip.

In the end, it was a comfortable victory for the Gunners.

What is impressive with the team right now is rotating players does not seem to impact the overall performance in a negative way. The team carries on winning all their games, except for the Barcelona one, of course.

The set-up and mindset stays the same with a high-energy press and attacking combinations.

All the players seem to have bought into the project brought in by the manager, with some players getting less playing time that the main starters but still able to contribute to the results.

It is interesting to note that Vivianne Miedema has been allowed to rest a lot this season. She has played 61% of the total available minutes. Foord, alongside Parris, Mead, Heath, McCabe and Iwabuchi are being used in rotation and offering top quality, too.

With the Arsenal chasing five trophies this season, squad rotation is key to keeping everyone involved and ready to perform when called upon.

If any player starts being unhappy due to her lack of playing time, it could create some disharmony and damage all the work that has been done so far.

Looking at the FA WSL table, Arsenal are the only side with a 100% record with six wins in six.

They are three points clear of Chelsea.

The fight for the third Champions League place is wide open with Spurs on thirteen points, Brighton with twelve and Manchester United with eleven.

At the bottom of the table, relegation is a two horses race between Leicester with nil points and Birmingham with one.

Arsenal are away to Køge in the Women’s Champions League next and will look to consolidate their second place in the Group behind Barcelona, before the return leg against the title holders at the Emirates Stadium in December.
