Gunners close gap on Liverpool
 Women's Football WSL1 News - 9 Feb 2018
Arsenal moved to within one point of Liverpool in the WSL 1 table after beating them 3-0 at the Select Security Stadium on Wednesday night.
Lisa Evans went close early on for the Gunners with an effort which was pushed away but shortly afterwards, Caroline Weir was to go even closer at the other end with a dipping 30-yard strike which came back off the bar.
The deadlock was broken just before the half hour, when Arsenal were awarded a penalty. Vivianne Miedema stepped up to take the kick and although her initial effort was saved by Rebecca Flaherty, the Dutch striker was able to follow on and tuck home the rebound to give her side the lead.
On the stroke of half time, Arsenal doubled their lead in spectacular fashion. Receiving the ball around 25 yards from goal from Miedema's pass, Dominique Janssen unleashed an unstoppable shot which found the far top corner of the net.
Liverpool tried to find a way back into the game after the break but, just after the hour, it was put beyond their reach as Lisa Evans broke through on goal and thumped a powerful shot past Flaherty and into the roof of the net for the third goal.
The result does not alter any positions in the table but Arsenal have moved to within one point of third placed Liverpool, although they are still eight points behind leaders Manchester City.
Liverpool: Rebecca Flaherty, Martha Harris (sub Ashley Hodson 70mins), Casey Stoney, Sophie Ingle, Alex Greenwood, Kate Longhurst (sub Rinsola Babajide 82mins), Laura Coombs, Ali Johnson (sub Satara Murray 64 mins), Jess Clarke, Caroline Weir, Beth England. Subs not used: Emily Ramsey, Amy Rodgers, Lucy Roberts.
Arsenal: Sari Van Veenendaal, Emma Mitchell, Leah Willaimson, Louise Quinn (sub Katie McCabe 74mins), Lisa Evans, Jordan Nobbs (sub Ava Kuyken 88mins), Dominique Janssen, Danielle van de Donk, Danielle Carter, Vivianne Miedema, Heather O'Reilly (sub Lauren James 78mins). Subs not used: Anna Moorhouse, Alex Scott, Beth Mead, Anna Filbey.
