Arsenal defeated bitter rivals Tottenham 4-0 at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday in front of a record crowd, thanks to goals from Beth Mead, Vivianne Miedema, and Rafaelle Souz. Leah Williamson expressed relief that Arsenal were able to deliver on such a historic day at the Emirates. A new WSL-high 47,367 people attended Saturday’s North London derby, and the majority of them left with a sense of victory after Arsenal’s comfortable win. Beth Mead, Vivianne Miedema (twice), and Rafaelle Souza all hit their shots. And England captain Ashley Williamson, who led her country to Euro 2022 glory at Wembley in front of 87,192 ecstatic fans in the summer, is hoping her team’s performance will leave them wanting more. “It was incredible,” she said. On days like this, you want to celebrate the occasion, but we have a job to do and we need to make sure we win, which we did quite convincingly.” It’s almost a relief that we’ve done it in a way that might bring them back. The occasion is wonderful, but you still have to show up and do your job, and others must show up the next time.” “I feel very privileged because I have had the opportunity to be in these record-breaking crowds while wearing an England shirt and an Arsenal shirt; it feels incredible.” But I’m proud that it’s Arsenal, and it’s fitting that the club that has always supported women’s football has pushed the boundaries and set new ones.

“We wanted to break another record on the back of the summer.” After Mead’s early goal, Arsenal didn’t look back and doubled their lead late in the first half when Meidema took advantage of some poor Spurs defending. Soon after the break, Souza headed in a third, and Meidema headed in a fourth midway through the second half. More top stories from Mirror Football can be found here.
