Arsenal may be going through one of the worst times in their history, but all is not gloomy for the north London club.
As the men’s side languish at the back of the Premier League with no goals scored in three games this season, things are looking good on the women’s side.
The Gunners named Jonas Eidevall as manager in June and announced a revamp that will see increased investment, games at the Emirates Stadium and a new home for the team at London Colney, the training ground for the cutting edge technology.
Make no mistake, title-winning Emma Hayes’ Chelsea – whom Arsenal face in their WSL opener live on talkSPORT this Sunday – will take some time to come to a halt this quarter.
The Blues have lost just one game all last season as they rushed to the Super League crown.
But Eidevall, who was named in June, has a selection of talented players – and nothing more than Vivianne Miedema.
The 25-year-old striker has been a phenomenon for the North London club, scoring 93 goals in 99 games since joining Arsenal in 2017 and is the WSL’s all-time top scorer with 60 in just 67 appearances.
She continued her stunning form for the Netherlands during the Olympics, scoring ten goals in just four games for the Netherlands, breaking the record for most goals by a woman in a single Olympic tournament.
Arsenal fans are even known to have begged Mikel Arteta to bring him into the men’s squad to sort out their issues.
It’s been a scorching start to the season for Gunners fans, but at least the women make them smile.
Their clash against champions Chelsea – which is live on talkSPORT – is shaping up to be a brilliant encounter.
With Miedema in the lead, you can be sure that they have a good chance of winning.
