FA WSL: Manchester Derby ends in a draw

FA WSL: Manchester Derby ends in draw, Arsenal remains undefeated

October 13, 2021 By Juan Aguerrevere
The Manchester Derby, which reached a peak television audience of 1.1 million on Saturday, did not fail to disappoint. However, the draw does not favor either team.

If anything, Manchester United will be the happier of the two sides. The Red Devils have ten points after five FA WSL games. On the other hand, Manchester City are winless in their last four games, with only four points to show.

Chelsea won their game against Leicester City 2-0 on Sunday. Danish striker Pernille Harder and English midfielder Fran Kirby scored their third goal of the season. Also, the result accounted for manager Emma Hayes' centennial win. As for Leicester, they are the only team that has yet to register a point this season.

Brighton & Hove Albion are back in winning ways after a 2-1 home win against Tottenham. Forward Lee Geum-Min and center-back Victoria Williams were the difference-makers for the Seagulls, scoring a goal apiece. The Lilywhites will head into international break without the flawless record they were hoping for. 

Having not scored a single goal in their opening four WSL games of the season from 28 shots, Reading FC scored three first half goals against Aston Villa from only four shots. As a result, the Royals are in the tenth position with three points.

Like Reading, Birmingham City also found avoided a loss for the first time this season. Center-back Louise Quinn's second-half strike against West Ham served as the game-tying goal for the Blues. As for the Hammers, they have not lost a game since a 2-0 loss to Brighton on Matchday 1.

As for the last game of Matchday 5, Arsenal drilled three goals past Everton at Meadow Park in London. The game saw wing-back Katie McCabe, center-back Lotte Wubben-Moy and midfielder Frida Maanum scoring the Gunners' three goals. Have a look at Maanum's late wonder strike:

Arsenal remain undefeated and have collected all possible 15 points from their first five games.
