Match report as Arsenal Women win 2-0 at Liverpool Women in the WSL; first-half goals from Lia Walti and Frida Maanum give the visitors all three points; Arsenal return to the top of the table, three points ahead of Manchester United, Chelsea and Everton, who all play later on Sunday
Frida Maanum celebrates after doubling Arsenal’s advantage over Liverpool
Arsenal returned to the top of the Women’s Super League after beating Liverpool 2-0 at Prenton Park for a record-equalling 12th straight league victory.
The visitors led 2-0 at half-time thanks to well-taken goals from Lia Walti (15) and Frida Maanum (22), the former with a sweetly-struck volley, before the latter doubled their advantage with an eye-catching solo strike.
And that was enough to gain all three points in front of a record WSL crowd at Tranmere Rovers as Jonas Eidevall’s team recorded a record-extending 10th successive WSL clean sheet.
As a result, Arsenal returned to the top of the table, three points ahead of Manchester United, Chelsea and Everton, who all play later on Sunday.
