Arsenal surf wave of confidence; Vicky Jepson tightens Liverpool’s defence; Manchester City need to have a plan B
Arsenal got their second-least convincing result of the Super League season against Bristol City: a 4-0 win. The same names keep cropping up on the scoresheet: Danielle van de Donk, Vivianne Miedema and Jordan Nobbs were on the mark again. The big difference between this season and the last is that Miedema is staying fit and Nobbs has added goals to what was already a fantastic game. It means that they have not missed Kim Little, who broke a leg against Chelsea a couple of weeks ago. Little is their captain, the most-capped Scotland player and extremely influential but this Arsenal machine has not missed a beat. They are blowing teams away, whether it was Chelsea (5-0), Reading (6-0) or Bristol City: the level of performance does not change. Some teams are up for certain games and perhaps slightly complacent for others but Arsenal just keep doing what they are doing with no regard for the opposition. They are riding the crest of a wave and there is simply no holding them back.
