While Tottenham put on a better performance this second half, the truth is they were blown away by Arsenal As soon as McCabe’s free kick came in the second minute, there would only be ‘one winner The Gunners were ruthless in the final third, facing a very poor Spurs backline

Arsenal are now the only side with a 100% record (thanks to Man City held by Reading), with Tottenham still chasing their first win of the season

The match is drawing to a close, and the player of the match, unsurprisingly, addresses the treble heroine Vivianne Miedema

The visitors see most of the ball again and it is Arsenal who make the possession errors From an error in midfield, Spurs work the ball to the right The ball is crossed at the far post and Kennedy leaves his head wide

Spurs are seeing more of the ball right now Give them their due They put in a better performance this half, as illustrated by the score of 1-1 second halfÂ

As I type this (« Spurs don’t look like they’re scoring ») Leon walks to the back of the net

It was a little soft goal for Arsenal to concede The ball is played into the box on a free kick and Leon beats a trio of Arsenal defenders to head five yardsÂ

Arsenal have stepped on the accelerator this second half, not surprisingly But at the same time, Spurs do not seem to score

Spurs have rare chance to put Zinsberger under pressure in goal Arsenal Worm has a free kick from 25 yards but shoots high and wide

Three goals and the new WSL goal record – not a bad working afternoon for the Dutch star

As I typed the previous post (‘Arsenal don’t look like they’re scoring’) Â Miedema showed vision of playing Mead on the right Mean entered the box before facing off against Foord six yards away and the Australian did just enough to get the ball over the lineÂ

Spurs have done well so far this half Barring this chance for Foord, Arsenal didn’t look likely to add to their first five halves

3 – Vivianne Miedema became the first player in WSL history to score more than a hat-trick in the first half of the competition, the first time a player has done so since that Miedema herself did in December 2019 against Bristol City Supreme imageTwittercom / z4qNXAjhLF

Percival concedes free kick in midfield This is the first tough challenge of the game and a Spurs could have done more before the hour

Foord is played in the middle (you can fly a jumbojet between Spurs’ center-backs, they’re so far apart) and on goal the Australian decides to ignore Miedema’s run His shot is well saved by Spencer

Leon takes on McCabe’s challenge and ref points finger at spot Replay shows contact was minimal at best

Without any pressure, Filbey gives the ball to Foord on the edge of the box – the kind of mistake Spurs can make – but the Australian shoots wide

I suggest the answer is nothing But what they can do is improve their performance, because if Arsenal keep scoring more in the next 45 minutes it could be the kind of result that can shape the rest of the seasonÂ

Aim for a solid, unspectacular next period and try to take that into their next game

Spurs were sorry this half, they struggled to hold the ball, were a complete mess at the back and the 5-0 halftime score doesn’t flatter Arsenal

Miedema had a very fun 45 minutes, scoring a hat-trick and becoming the first player to score 50 WSL goalsÂ

I wrote this before this game and think I’ll write it again BUT IT’S TOO EASY for the Gunners

Miedema is played very selflessly by Foord at the far post (when the Aussie had every right to shoot on goal herself) and the Dutch history maker has a hat trick in the first half -time, pulling on a meterÂ

Things are going so badly for Spurs that they made a double substitution before the break

Spurs were asleep after a free kick, McCabe was not and played in the Dutch striker at the near post Miedema didn’t have much to aim for but she hits the back of the net with the ball pressing at the first post

Great Arsenal football Miedema plays a nice cross ball for Mead, who settles in with a brilliant first touch before hitting a half volley on goal It wouldn’t have mattered, however, as Mead was just out- thu

Mead runs to Harrop and wins a corner Tottenham defend the set piece well, which given how this game has gone so far, it’s a triumph for the visitorsÂ

50 – Vivianne Miedema became the first player to score 50 goals @BarclaysFAWSL, reaching that total in just her 50th appearance in the Superstar competition imageTwittercom / JfYN60DCds

Better from Spurs, because they haven’t conceded for 10 minutes now and at least keep the ball better It would be interesting to know what Alex Morgan is thinking now

Nearly a fourth for the Gunners – Miedema squares the ball for Van de Donk who throws in but fails to finish it

The Spurs defense try not to give Arsenal too much space behind (the problem for Foord’s goal) However, by sitting still they give the midfielder too much space and time on the ball Mead capitalizes on this, shooting from a distance to force Spencer to make a decent save

They have a THIRD! This time it’s @CaitlinFoord after a nice passage by @leahcwilliamson ð ???? ¯ # BarclaysFAWSL #NLD picTwittercom / jSNxyILRn0

Spurs have given up three away goals in the first 15 minutes and all without a big fight shown.You can talk about the lack of Alex Morgan, but it’s hard (bordering on impossible) to say how the American striker would help when it came to a questionable defense of the type seen so far this morningÂ

As I type, the Dutch star Miedema arrives at the end of a cross but it shines brightly Close there for a fourth

A long ball above beats all four Tottenham full-backs and gives Foord a free run to goal and the Aussie side puts him in the bottom corner WAY TOO EASY

OH MY WORD ð ?? ¤ © â ???? ï¸ ?? What a start for the North London Derby! Katie McCabe’s formidable free kick puts Arsenal in the lead! imageTwittercom / kVm2PX1u0V

Spurs reacted well to the second goal and managed to hold the ball longer than a few passes Dean shoots from afar forcing Zinsberger into Arsenal’s net to make a good save

Against Man Utd Tottenham kept their form very well Today it’s the opposite, Arsenal are in full control and it’s pretty easy for the hosts

It’s TOO EASY for the gunners A single bullet gives Miedema a run to goal, she fires a low left foot shot into the corner

McCabe has another free kick just past the D, and she shoots just wide.She has a great left foot and I think I’ll write more about that if the game continues

Spurs knew they would be under pressure from the start and they concede a free kick just outside the box on the right side

Looks like McCabe is going to float one for a teammate to attack, but instead she shoots on goal and comes off the post to give Spencer no chance in Spurs’ goal NOT the start that Tottenham does was after

The start is slow on both sides, but the Gunners are already seeing more ball

If I were asked to be a Mystic Meg for a few seconds, I would say NO let’s find out if I, and a lot of experts, are right

While most of the talk leading up to today’s kickoff is, understandably, about Alex Morgan, it’s normal to forget that the Gunners have their own world star in Australia international Caitlin Foord. In her four WSL appearances, she has scored twice and scored four goals, and will be key today for the Gunners

The Spurs defense will no doubt be under a lot of pressure this afternoon, can they do what no one has been able to do in the last 29 games and keep a clean sheet?

29 – Arsenal have scored in each of their last 29 Women’s Super League appearances, scoring an impressive 91 goals (AVG 31 per game), their longest goal streak in the Central competition imageTwittercom / amTXjcQEJN

Here is Fiona Tomas’ report ahead of this match, looking back at that momentous clash between the North London clubs last November and the current state of both sides

The news is that Germany’s Leonie Maier suffered a thigh injury and was excluded from today’s derby

Here we go !! A small setback preventing me from doing what I love I can’t wait to be on the pitch with this team in the next few weeks I can’t wait ð ?????? ð ?? ¤ ?? https: // tco / 4uiSUkGVjX

Today’s team will face Arsenalð ?????? # THWFC: Spencer  © ï¸ ??, Zadorsky, Harrop, Filbey, Davison, Dean, Percival, Addison, Kennedy, Quinn, Neville #SpurHerOn â ?? ªï¸ ?? #COYS picTwittercom / TriLfZjWu3

Last year, the first North London Women’s Super League derby was watched by 38,262 fans at the brand new Tottenham Hotspur stadium As a statement of the status of the women’s game, following the World Cup this summer, and where it is taking place, it was quite impressiveÂ

This weekend’s total attendance for weekend games set a new record at 74,247, surpassing the 63,931 who watched the opening weekend Today’s clash between the main rivals will be, for obvious reasons (Covid-19 restrictions, if you’ve been to another planet in recent months ) will be very different Empty stands in a much smaller stadium, Meadow Park

It was hoped that Alex Morgan’s highly anticipated debut would compensate for the lack of atmosphere, but it was confirmed this morning that the American star will not be making an appearance today (more on that later) Â

Arsenal enter the game with bad news and good news The bad news is that they are still suffering from an injury crisis The good news is that it doesn’t seem to have affected them at all as they instead are at the top of the table (although Manchester United currently beat West Ham and will go ahead before the game is over) and entering the game on the back of an impressive 5-0 pounding from Brighton

Spurs could get some good news They have a point from their four games and were hoping Morgan’s stardust helps them propel them to the top of the table There were signs of improvement in their 1-0 home loss to Manchester United last week and hope will be that this upward trend continues todayÂ
