Match report: Liverpool 2-3 Arsenal Women

Vivianne Miedema scored twice as we returned to winning ways in the WSL by beating Liverpool 3-2 in a closely-contested game on Thursday night.

We started brightly and almost took the lead inside the opening minute when Danielle van de Donk won back possession and teed up Jordan Nobbs, whose powerful effort from the edge of the box was saved well by Anke Preuss.

Against the run of play, the hosts took the lead when a long ball evaded our midfield before it fell into the path of Rinsola Babajide, who used her pace to shrug off Louise Quinn and slot low past Pauline Peyraud-Magnin.
