Women’s Super League: Liverpool 2-3 Arsenal

Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema scored her 15th and 16th goals of the Women’s Super League season to help earn the Gunners a gripping 3-2 win at relegation-threatened Liverpool.

The Netherlands star poked the visitors level after Rinsola Babajide had slotted Liverpool in to an early lead.

England’s Jordan Nobbs headed Arsenal in front but Rachel Furness equalised on the stroke of half-time.

Miedema then nodded in Leonie Maier’s cross in a tense second half to win it.
