Arsenal make it 14 wins in a row with thumping victory over Leicester

Arsenal travelled to Leicester on Sunday as they looked to take back their place at the top of the WSL table.

Arsenal dominated the game from the very start, but the Leicester defence did well to stay strong, especially given the weather conditions. However, it did not take long for Arsenal to find the breakthrough.

Within twelve minutes, Frida Maanum found the back of the net, after she was the first to react to Levell‘s spilled save.

Ten minutes later Arsenal had their second. Beth Mead picked out the run of Caitlin Foord, who then poked it home past Levell to double the Gunners’ lead

After the early Arsenal dominance, Leicester were able to calm things down, and they had some good chances of their own, with CJ Bott coming close.

However, the Arsenal attack proved too strong once again. Steph Catley’s corner went all the way in, as Cailtin Foord held off the Leicester keeper.

Arsenal continued their dominance in the second half. A beautiful ball over the top from Wubben-Moy found Blackstenius, who rounded Levell and slotted it into the back of the net.

Missy Goodwin came close to giving Leicester some form of consolation goal, with a beautiful strike, but it was matched by an incredible save from Zinsberger.

Arsenal maintained their record breaking run of 14 WSL wins in a row. They must now wait until later this evening to know if the win will be enough to keep them top of the table - Manchester United take on Chelsea, at Leigh Sports Village, to try and continue their unbeaten start to the season, as well as their place back on the top of the WSL table.
