Vivianne Miedema has scored in each of her last six WSL appearances

Vivianne Miedema became the first player to reach 50 Women’s Super League goals as Arsenal thrashed Tottenham.

Needing one goal to eclipse Nikita Parris’ all-time WSL record of 49, Miedema claimed a first-half hat-trick, with Katie McCabe and Caitlin Foord also on target before the break.

Arsenal keeper Manuela Zinsberger saved Rianna Dean’s second-half penalty before Foord grabbed her second.

Lucia Leon headed in a consolation, but Arsenal made it five wins from five.
