Arsenal go top after smashing five past Man City

Kim Little scored twice as Arsenal thrashed Manchester City 5-0 to go top of the Women’s Super League.

Vivianne Miedema got the ball rolling with a 10th-minute opener before Little’s fine first strike put Arsenal two goals up in their quest to overtake rivals Tottenham and claim first place, albeit on goal difference for now.

Katie McCabe powered in a third goal and Little converted a penalty for her brace at Meadow Park before Leah Williamson rubbed salt in City’s wounds with a stoppage-time header.

What an excellent day for Arsenal Football Club after in the men’s Premier League,

Earlier, reigning champions Chelsea laid down a marker with a thumping 6-1 victory over previously unbeaten Manchester United.

Fran Kirby opened the scoring inside two minutes with her 50th Super League goal, and Chelsea were three up at half-time.

Pernille Harder produced a brilliant solo run to double the lead before Sam Kerr tapped home a third.

Alessia Russo gave United hope with a deflected shot shortly after half-time but goals from Kerr, Drew Spence and Jessie Fleming made this emphatically Chelsea’s day.

Having been stunned by Arsenal in their opening match, this was a performance to show that Emma Hayes’ side are firmly back on track.

Tottenham maintained their perfect start with a 1-0 victory over Reading.

They had to wait until the 85th minute to make the breakthrough, Jessica Naz grabbing the goal.

Aston Villa won by the same scoreline at Brighton, with Emily Gielnik producing a fine finish three minutes after the break.

West Ham secured their first win of the season in fine style with a 4-0 victory over Leicester.

Australian debutant Tameka Yallop opened the scoring in the 26th minute, and Claudia Walker added her first goal for the club 12 minutes later.

An unfortunate own goal from Ashleigh Plumptre made it three just before half-time and Yallop netted her second late in the second half.

Neville: Spurs pair ‘look like they’ve had their balloons burst’

Gary Neville thinks Harry Kane is unhappy and “just not himself” after Spurs were soundly beaten 3-1 by Arsenal in the north London derby on Sunday.

Emile Smith Rowe, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Bukayo Saka scored a goal each in the first half to give the Gunners a huge lead at the interval.

Son did get a goal back late in the game and Aaron Ramsdale pulled off a great save near the end – but .



Kane – who tried to force a move to Manchster City in the summer – was at fault for the Gunners’ third goal, while he nudged a great chance wide in the second half, and Neville thinks the England captain and Son Heung-min looked off the pace.

“He doesn’t look happy,” Neville said on Sky Sports. “The balls played up to him were long punts, (but) Harry doesn’t look himself in terms of his body language.

“He looks like he’s still carrying over the situation from the summer. (But) he could’ve still had two or three goals today and a penalty. There’s still a contribution, but he’s just not himself.

“Neither is Son (looking happy), I’m not just singling out Kane. Son and Kane look like they’ve had their balloons burst at a party as a kid. That’s what it looks like.”

Fellow pundit Graeme Souness added: “They’re two big players for Spurs. They have to make the difference when things are going bad. If it’s not them, who are they going to rely on?

“They look like a sorry group of players who feel sorry for themselves. It’s time for the good senior pros, it’s time for Harry Kane and whoever else may deem themselves a big player, they have to stand up and be counted.”

Former Spurs defender Ledley King insists he is not “worried” about Kane’s form as the 29-year-old’s attitude is always spot on.

King said: “I’m never worried about Harry in terms of his form, ever. I know his mentality is to get better and better every day and to be the best player he can be.

“He’s always going to score goals because he cares. But there’s no doubt he’s out of shape at the moment, out of form. When he’s not playing well, we struggle.”
