Women's Sport Social Embed Liverpool 2 Arsenal 3

Vivianne Miedema scored twice as third-placed Arsenal claimed a 3-2 win against second-from-bottom Liverpool in the Women's Super League.

Liverpool opened the scoring in the 14th minute with a composed finish from promising England Under-21 international Rinsola Babajide.

The lead did not last long, however, with WSL top scorer Miedema equalising from a right-wing delivery in the 31st minute before Jordan Nobbs headed the visitors in front just over two minutes later.

Liverpool - hosting the match in Chester due to problems with the pitch at Prenton Park - responded well and, on the stroke of half-time, Rachel Furness found the net with a superb left-footed strike to level.

Arsenal lost Beth Mead to a knee injury early in the second half but struck their winner in the 78th minute, when Dutch striker Miedema netted a header after another cross from the right-hand side.

Miedema said: "You obviously start looking at the clock, but then you kind of know there is always going to be that one chance and luckily that came.

"From there on I didn't have the feeling that we were going to give it away again.

"I've always been complaining that we don't play enough crosses to my head so I'm very happy that it happened today.

"In the first half we didn't really switch the ball enough and the second half with all the crosses coming in you could see that we created more chances."
