Adriana Leon’s fantastic solo run and finish ensured West Ham United earned a share of the spoils in the 2020-21 Barclays FA Women’s Super League season-opener against Tottenham Hotspur. The home side had taken the lead when a Spurs corner was diverted by Grace Fisk into her own net on 53 minutes, but Leon’s stunning strike got the Irons level less than four minutes later.

Zinsberger; Maritz, Williamson, Schnaderbeck (Gut), Catley (McCabe); Walti, Little (Van De Donk), Roord (Foord); Nobbs, Miedema, Mead (Evans)

West Ham United suffered a heavy defeat at home to Arsenal in their first home match of the season. A first game at Dagenham & Redbridge Stadium, in front of fans for the first time since February, was the setting for the Hammers’ opening home match of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League season. It started well for the Irons too, as Adriana Leon drew the first ripple of applause from supporters after forcing Manuela Zinsberger into a low save. Mackenzie Arnold then got a huge ovation from the home fans after making a terrific instinctive save to deny Miedema, after her shot took a wicked deflection off of Laura Vetterlein. The fire in the home side was clear, with Rachel Daly and Grace Fisk getting shown yellow cards early on, before captain Gilly Flaherty joined in the referee’s book. Arsenal took the lead on 23 minutes as Roord netted on the half-volley, but the Irons hit back less than five minutes later for the second time in as many weeks. Kenza Dali collected the ball on the edge of the area and hit a superb strike in the bottom corner. Arnold then followed up her terrific saves earlier in the half with a double-stop from other planet, denying Beth Mead one-on-one from six yards before stopping Jordan Nobbs from tucking home the rebound. There was no stopping Arsenal’s second though, as Miedema tucked home from close range. The ball looked offside, and, in the aftermath, captain Flaherty was shown a second yellow card and sent off. Arsenal would add another two goals before the end of the half through Little and Mead, giving the Hammers a mountain to climb in the second period. Roord would complete her hat-trick, while Miedema would strike again, before Leah Williamson and Caitlin Foord also netted to compound a difficult afternoon for the Irons.

West Ham United were beaten 1-0 by Reading on a disappointing Sunday afternoon for Matt Beard’s side. A first half strike from Lauren Bruton was enough to seal the points for the visitors at a rain-soaked Chigwell Construction Stadium. The Hammers were left to rue missed opportunities, with Kenza Dali failing to convert from the penalty spot in the second half. The defeat leaves West Ham 9th in the Barclays Women’s Super League after just three rounds of fixtures.

Alisha Lehmann fired home the winning penalty in a frantic shoot-out, after Gilly Flaherty’s late-leveller earned West Ham United at least a share of the points against Brighton & Hove Albion. Rachel Daly’s first goal in Claret and Blue had put the Hammers in front, but Megan Connolly levelled before half-time. Substitute Rianna Jarrett gave Brighton the lead, but captain Flaherty headed home from a corner kick to take the match to the shoot-out. Both sides would miss spot-kicks but, after Courtney Brosnan’s fine save, substitute Lehmann stepped up to fire home the winning effort.

Brighton & Hove Albion:

Fiskerstrand; Gibbons (Whelan), Bowman, Kerkdijk, Le Tissier (Green); Connolly, Lee (Jarrett), Heroum, O'Sullivan (Kaagman), Barton, Williams

West Ham United fell to a 3-1 Barclays FA Women’s Super League defeat away to Everton. Two goals from Everton substitute Lucy Graham in the second period settled the game, after Nicoline Sorensen had given the Toffees an eight-minute lead. Kenza Dali’s fantastic low finish from outside the area had drawn the Hammers level in the first half, but it was the home side that took all three points in an entertaining encounter at Walton Hall Park.

Russo added her second before the break and despite Rachel Daly’s chipped effort setting up a tense finish, although Manchester United triumphed adding a late fourth through Christen Press. The defeat leaves the Hammers 10th in the Barclays FA WSL after just five rounds of fixtures.
