Highlights & reaction: Arsenal 4-0 Brighton Women | News

Catch all the best moments and post-match interviews from our opening game of the WSL season

We stormed to victory in our WSL opener against Brighton on Friday night and you can watch all the best moments right here.

Goals from Kim Little, Stina Blackstenius, and Beth Mead ensured our dream start to the new league campaign. Extended match highlights of our 4-0 win are available to watch by clicking play in the video above. 

Speaking after the match, goalscorer Beth Mead was very happy to bag the three points: "What better way to start the league!"

Always striving forward, Mead rued some missed opportunities for even more goals and shared that the team are aiming to be more ruthless in the final third. 

"I think for me, I should have scored more tonight. I had the chances. Now my standards are set pretty high, I've got to be doing better with the ones that I got."

Meanwhile, boss Jonas Eidevall was delighted with the team's performance. "I'm very happy with a victory, very happy with the atmosphere here at the stadium, and very happy with the way that we played. I thought we won well deservedly." 

"We always want to push for more," he added. "We shouldn't let the score define how we play a football game. That's one thing we talk about a lot within the team as well. We need to be 100%. We need to be our very best all the time, no matter if we're losing or if we are winning.
