Vivianne Miedema scored twice as third-placed Arsenal claimed a 3-2 win against second-from-bottom Liverpool in the Women’s Super League.
Liverpool opened the scoring in the 14th minute with a composed finish from promising England U21 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.
