Match report: Brighton 0-4 Arsenal Women

Our perfect start to 2020 continued on Sunday as we ran out 4-0 winners over Brighton and maintained our three-point lead at the top of the Women’s Super League table.

We were held to a goalless draw the last time we faced the Seagulls on the road, but this time around Joe Montemurro opted for a 3-4-3 formation and treated the travelling fans to an outstanding attacking performance.

Leah Williamson, playing on the right side of our back three, was particularly impressive and helped us to open the scoring after just three minutes.

The England international launched a crossfield pass over Brighton’s defence and into the path of Danielle van de Donk, who charged into the area and applied a delicate dinked finish at the near post.
