Women’s Super League: Talking Points for Weekend Events | Women’s Super League

The united rush to their best start

Manchester United secured their best start to the WSL season with a 4-0 win over Brighton, making it the first time they had won their first three matches since being promoted in 2019. They had them on top of goal difference and their performances were underpinned by excellent attack and defence. They are one of two teams that have not conceded a goal in the league, along with Arsenal, and Sunday’s win was their ninth consecutive league win. “We just have to keep going in every game,” match player, Leah Galton, told the BBC.

Missed opportunities cost Arsenal the lead

Arsenal let opportunities beg in their 1-0 win over Reading, leaving them in second place as they scored nine goals to 10 for United. Arsenal had 21 shots on target, but only six on target, including Stena Plaxtenius’ chance in the first minute, wasted. The incubator by Laura Wienroither and the penalty kick by Kim Little saved by Jacqueline Burns in the goalkeeper’s debut in the WSL. They will need to be more clinical if they are to claim the title. Match player Manuela Zinsberger told Sky Sports: “We always know it’s hard to beat Reading. We defended as a team and got the result.” SR

Spurs enjoy the comforts of home

Leyton Orient’s Brisbane Road proved to be a productive new home for Tottenham as they returned to winning ways. They moved to new digs in the summer as they seek to continue building their fan base. They continued their run of never losing in an opening home game in the Premier League as they qualified to beat Liverpool. The decisive goal was in the 11th minute, instigated by the signing of Celine Bizet Ildhusoy Al-Saifi, and converted into a net by unfortunate Niamh Fahi. This is the third time that Liverpool have conceded earlier this season. Tottenham dominated the first 45 games and should have increased the difference before the break. Liverpool improved in the second half but clear opportunities remained elusive, leaving Matt Bird with work. Sophie Downey

Chaos broke out in Walsall

Shields was Marshall Boxing’s historical headline Saturday but there was an unexpected unexpected fight earlier today. With West Ham leading three important points over Aston Villa at Walsall, the match slipped into chaos on and off the field. In the first minute of extra time, West Ham defender Hawa Sissoko saw red literally and figuratively. The France international responded to a cynical mistake made by Sarah Mayling. When the Villa full-back responded with a push in turn, Sissoko’s hand was tied to Mayling’s face, leaving the referee with no choice. Mayling got a reservation for her role in the brawl. Unrest broke out in the bunker as West Ham manager Paul Konchesky was also sent into the tunnel. It’s something we rarely see at the top level, and as Aston Villa manager Carla Ward said: “It shouldn’t be in the game.” Ban will surely follow; The big question is how long? SD

Hasegawa points route to the city

Manchester City shine and beat Leicester 4-0 at the Academy Stadium in an indispensable match for Gareth Taylor and his team after two defeats away from home, against Aston Villa and Chelsea. There were many positives for the coach, including two goals from Khadija Shaw, but above all, an impressive appearance from Yui Hasegawa, the summer signing from West Ham brought in when it became clear that City would lose Keira Walsh. The Japan international capped her performance with a late goal from outside the box and Taylor said: “She has the ability to play through midfield and attack because she is so creative. She can score goals as she has proven today. You can see that she is a great player, someone I’ve always admired and I’m really happy that we were able to secure her.” “. Marcus Christenson

Hayes is present during his absence at Chelsea

Emma Hayes’ absence is a big deal for Chelsea, but the detail-obsessed manager isn’t far from the action – even then. Emergency hysterectomy associated with endometriosis. Hayes was in the ear of her assistant Dennis Reddy throughout Chelsea’s 3-1 career which featured an ever-improving Everton side under their new manager, Brian Sorensen. Reddy called up the shots, and was tasked with making the final decisions after a discussion with Hayes and general manager, Paul Green, who has shared an office with Hayes over his nine years at the club. Hayes is known for empowering its players and employees, encouraging them to be the decision makers on her side, and the bonus of this strategy is that when it is taken out of the equation, there are leaders who are able to take the mantle in their image.
