A Barclays Women’s Super League record crowd of 47,367 saw Arsenal comfortably beat Spurs at Emirates Stadium.

Ashleigh Neville stopped a certain goal in the first of a number of crucial interventions for Spurs, before Beth Mead curled home the ball at the second attempt with only six minutes played.

Despite the early setback, the visitors looked to be keeping the deficit to one by the break, only for a defensive error to allow Vivianne Miedema to slot home the Gunners’ second.

Headers from two corners wrapped up the points for Arsenal, Rafaelle meeting Mead’s delivery and following a short corner Miedema nodded in her second of the afternoon.
