Katie McCabe Produces Another Stunner As Arsenal Make it Five From Five

It’s becoming a regular theme. Katie McCabe scored another spectacular goal for Arsenal as the Gunners made it five wins from five in the Women’s Super League. 

McCabe opened the scoring with an audacious volley from outside the box which helped Arsenal to a 3-0 victory over Everton at Meadow Park. McCabe’s performance which also saw her claim an assist was enough to pick up the Player Of The Match award at the end of the game. Watch the full highlights here.

The Gunners, led by manager Jonas Eidevall, are now the only team in the division to have won each of their opening five league fixtures. The Gunners made four changes from the side that lost to Barcelona on Wednesday night, with Lotte Wubben-Moy, Mana Iwabuchi, Nikita Parris and Tobin Heath all making a return to the starting XI.

Arsenal took control of the game early on and found plenty of joy down the left-hand side, where Vivianne Miedema, Tobin Heath and Katie McCabe were able to combine and interchange at every attack.

But in the end it was a moment of brilliance from McCabe to open the scoring, controlling the ball on her chest and volleying into the top corner from 20 yards. The Republic of Ireland skipper has now scored three goals in each of her last three WSL fixtures. Last week she scored this stunner against Aston Villa.

Arsenal then went on to double our advantage shortly before the break, with Wubben-Moy climbing high inside the penalty area to head home McCabe’s floated corner delivery.

We continued to dominate play throughout the second half, carving out a number of promising opportunities with Beth Mead coming closest, but our third would arrive late on and in some style too.

After scoring her first Arsenal goal in our defeat against Barcelona earlier this week, Frida Maanum was clearly hungry for more and with a stunning effort from 25 yards, arrowed the ball into the top left corner.

Next up for Arsenal is a clash against Hoffenheim in the Champions League on Thursday night. Kick-off is at 8pm and this will be streamed LIVE on the DAZN YouTube channel.

Elsewhere, Birmingham City with all their Irish contingent picked up their first points of the season as they shared the spoils with West Ham United in a 1-1 draw.

Birmingham grew into the game after going behind, and got themselves back into the game on 67 minutes, when Blues skipper and Ireland international Louise Quinn stabbed home from close range, after the Hammers failed to deal with a corner.
