In front of their home crowd, Arsenal dominated the four-time defending champions thanks to a brace from Alessia Russo and goals from Amanda Ilestedt and Beth Mead. This win allows them to return to the table level with Chelsea who, after nine matchdays, retain their first place only by virtue of a better goal difference.
The league is so competitive that you can't miss a game, especially against a team like Chelsea. So it was an important game and we know we had to be at our best," Russo told the BBC.
The match was played at the Emirates, the home stadium of the men's team, in front of 59,042 people, which is a record for the Women's Super League (WSL).
