The Gunners women team trashed Brighton and Hove Albion 4-0 today to win the Super League title today at the Amex Stadium.

Goals by Vivianne Miedema, Katie McCabe, Beth Mead, and Danielle van de Donk, helped Arsenal Women FC to clinch their first Women’s Super League title in seven years after defeating Brighton and Hove Albion 4-0.

The championship comes one week before the end of the 11-team tournament in England.

The Gunners Ladies have 51 points, four more than second-place Manchester City. Arsenal has won 14 matches, drawn five and lost twice.

“It’s an amazing achievement to win the league title after that long, and doing so in the way we did it was very pleasing,” Arsenal boss Joe Montemurro told The Daily Mail.

“I’m already thinking about what’s to come to be honest and creating a base on which to build on.”

The last time the Gunners Ladies won the competition was in 2012, after winning it in 2011 too.

This is the third title they have lifted since the creation of the Women’s Super League, becoming the team with most wins in history.

He added: “Man City and Chelsea have set the bar over the past three or four years and Arsenal need to be at that level.”

“We put some strategies and long-term planning in when I arrived and I’m happy that the title has come a little earlier than I thought.”

Arsenal will play their last game of the 2018-2019 at home on May 11th, when the ladies host Manchester City.
