Arsenal's Vivianne Miedema becomes all-time top scorer in Women's Super League history

Arsenal forward Vivianne Miedema has broken Nikita Parris’ record to become the all-time top scorer in Women’s Super League history.

Miedema found the back of the net for the Gunners in Sunday’s north London derby against arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur, marking her 50th WSL appearance with her 50th goal to make history.

Miedema put Arsenal 2-0 up against Tottenham to reach half a century, after Katie McCabe had broken the deadlock with a stunning free kick in just the fourth minute of the first north London derby of the season.

The Dutch international, who was crowned a European champion with her country back in 2017 and reached the Women’s World Cup final last summer, started the campaign with a brace against Reading on the opening weekend, as part of a 6-1 Arsenal win.

Since arriving in England back in 2017, Miedema has helped Arsenal win the WSL title and the Continental Cup, finishing as top scorer at the end of both the 2018-19 and 2019-20 campaigns.

However, they currently sit top of the table this season, boasting a 100 per cent record from the first five games and a goal difference of plus 20, which places them in first, above an Everton side who dropped points today for the first time in a draw with Brighton.
