England star Lucy Bronze questioned the competitiveness of the WSL following Arsenal’s record 11-1 win over Bristol City yesterday.
Vivianne Miedema scored six goals — and set up four — as the Gunners surpassed the previous best of 9-0, set by Liverpool in 2013, to go top of the table.
Lyon star Bronze tweeted: “And I get told the French league isn’t competitive enough”, before adding: “That’ll happen if you want the top teams to be at a level to compete in Europe which I actually want BTW!”
Miedema is now this season’s leading scorer in the WLS with 10 goals, while she is also top for assists with seven. She said: “I was happier assisting. I love setting up goals.”
Lisa Evans, with a brace, Jordan Nobbs, Leah Williamson and Emma Mitchell also scored.
