Caitlin Foord scored a brace to help Arsenal Women produce one of the comfortable football results of the weekend in the Women’s Super League. Beth Mead opened the scoring in the fourth minute before Foord doubled their advantage in the 71st minute. She sealed the three points in the 82nd minute to take the title race down to the final day.
Arsenal boss Jonas Eidevall: “Strong performance. It was very well deserved, winning with the margin that we did. It’s about staying focused on the task; what are our objectives? I think it’s very hard to be nervous and task-orientated at the same time. You live game by game and situation by the situation – you can’t jump ahead. So, that’s how you’ve got to look at it. That’s what drives results in the end. We feel good.”
Arsenal captain Kim Little: “It was intense. A little bit similar to the game earlier in the season, where we found it hard and drew 1-1. We’ve played really well in our previous two games and we carried that into tonight. Another clean sheet, a bit lucky at the end, but another great three goals and I thought we dominated the match. A great performance from us. Each of these last matches, for us, it was just about getting points on the board.”
Tottenham boss Rehanne Skinner: “You don’t come out here to lose a north London derby so it’s disappointing in that respect. Over the course of the game, we had moments where we showed great quality and create opportunities. The timing of when we conceded wasn’t necessarily the issue, the response was good off the back of that and we had a couple of good chances at that moment. When you don’t take the fine margins at the time when it presents itself, that creates a momentum shift and makes life a little bit difficult.”
