WSL: Chelsea end Arsenal's perfect start

Chelsea Women 2-1 Arsenal Women: Maria Thorisdottir’s late strike ends Gunners’ perfect start

Maria Thorisdottir scored a superb late goal as Chelsea ended reigning champions Arsenal’s 100 per cent start to the Barclays FA Women’s Super League with a 2-1 win at Kingsmeadow.

Danielle van de Donk had put the Gunners in front after only nine minutes, having been picked out in the penalty area by fellow Dutchwoman Vivianne Miedema.

The Blues slowly got on top, with Guro Reiten seeing her effort come back off the crossbar.

Chelsea eventually got themselves level just before the hour when Beth England turned in Fran Kirby’s square pass.
