FA WSL Matchday 2 round-up: Sept. 14, 2021

FA WSL Matchday 2 round-up: Man City falls to Tottenham, Brighton lead the table, Remi Allen salvages a point for Villa

September 14, 2021 By Juan Aguerrevere
Matchday 2 of the FA Women’s Super League saw Tottenham Hotspur do something that they had not done before, forward Remi Allen scoring another important goal for Aston Villa and the Seagulls dismantling Birmingham City.

FA WSL Matchday 2 action started with West Ham United and Aston Villa facing off at Chigwell Construction Stadium on Friday. 

The Hammers opened the scoring when forward Adriana Leon scored within the opening ten minutes of the game. However, midfielder Remi Allen rose to the occasion again after scoring a game-winner in her Aston Villa debut last week against Leicester City. The 30-year-old scored an equalizer in added time, earning her new club one point.

Then came the four league games on Saturday. Giants Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal all won their matches against Everton, Leicester City and Reading. However, the biggest surprise was Brighton & Hove Albion's 5-0 win over Birmingham City. 

The Seagulls are carrying over the fine form they showcased in the 2020-21 season, where they finished in 6th place, to this campaign. Brighton is at the top of the WSL table with six points after two games and a goal differential of +7. Forward Inessa Kaagman leads the team in goal contributions with two goals from the penalty spot and an assist.  

Lastly, Tottenham Hotspur defeated Manchester City 2-1 on Sunday. As a result, the Spurs celebrated their first competitive win against a top-four side – Arsenal, Chelsea, Man. City, Man. Utd – in their history. 

Man. City's loss against the Spurs was their second disappointing result last week, having failed to qualify for the UEFA Women's Champions League group stages after a 2-1 loss in aggregate against Real Madrid.

FA WSL – Headlines 

FA WSL football was played at King Power Stadium for the first time when Manchester United defeated Leicester City 3-1 on Saturday. A total of 4,473 fans were in attendance. 

Tottenham's Kerys Harrop made her 150th Barclays FA WSL appearance in the 2-1 win against Manchester City. The 30-year-old defender was subbed on for center-back Shelina Zadorsky in added time. 

Dan Carter scored her first goal with Brighton & Hove Albion in their 5-0 win over Birmingham City. 

Forward Martha Thomas scored her first goal as a Red Devil in Manchester United's 3-1 win against Leicester City. 

OptaJoe on Twitter: "Vivianne Miedema has been directly involved in 89 goals in 69 appearances in the Barclays FA WSL (63 goals & 26 assists), which is 31 more goals + assists than any other player in the competition since her debut in September 2017. Outrageous."

OptaJoe on Twitter: "Arsenal Katie McCabe has assisted 13 Barclays FA WSL goals since the beginning of last season, the most of any player, with today's the seventh from a dead-ball situation. She now ranks joint-fifth all-time for most assists in the competition's history (26). Wand."

OtpaJoe on Twitter: "Chelsea FCW have scored at least once in each of their last 53 Women's Super League matches, netting 163 goals across this run. This is now 23 games longer than the previous record run (30 consecutive games by Arsenal ending in October 2020). Inevitable."
