Liverpool 2-3 Arsenal

Vivianne Miedema scored twice as third-placed Arsenal claimed a 3-2 win against second-from-bottom Liverpool in the Women's Super League.

Ireland internationals Katie McCabe and Louise Quinn both started for the winners, with Irish captain substituted late on.

Liverpool opened the scoring in the 14th minute with a composed finish from promising England Under-21 international Rinsola Babajide.

The lead did not last long, however, with WSL top scorer Miedema equalising from a right-wing delivery in the 31st minute before Jordan Nobbs headed the visitors in front just over two minutes later.

Liverpool - hosting the match in Chester due to problems with the pitch at Prenton Park - responded well and, on the stroke of half-time, Rachel Furness found the net with a superb left-footed strike to level.

Arsenal lost Beth Mead to a knee injury early in the second half but struck their winner in the 78th minute, when Dutch striker Miedema netted a header after another cross from the right-hand side.
