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.

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.

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.

West Ham United were beaten 4-2 by Manchester United in the Barclays FA Women's Super League on a difficult Sunday afternoon at the Chigwell Construction stadium. Quick-fire goals from Alessia Russo and Tobin Heath put the visitors in control, before Emily van Egmond got a goal back for the Hammers. 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.

20_11_08 Birmingham City v. WHU

Emily van Egmond’s deft header secured a comeback 2-1 win for West Ham United away at Birmingham City. Van Egmond’s finish, from Rachel Daly’s brilliant cross, came after Adriana Leon’s well-placed ball into the box had been deflected into her own net by Birmingham’s Claudia Walker later in the first period. The striker had given the Blues the lead on nine minutes with a one-on-one finish, but the Hammers were able to come back and score twice to deservedly claim the three points and a first Barclays FA Women’s Super League win of the campaign.

West Ham United secured a first win of the 2020-21 season in sizzling style, seeing off Reading 3-0 in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup group stages. Inspired by a bistering performance by Martha Thomas, who registered a hat-trick of assists in the midweek game, goals by Alisha Lehmann, Emily van Egmond and Rachel Daly earned Matt Beard’s Irons a thoroughly deserved victory. A near flawless performance was on show across the pitch for the home side, with goalkeeper Mackenzie Arnold denying Lauren Bruton from the penalty spot with the Hammers one goal up. Danielle Caret would also pull an effort wide from 12 yards, when Reading were awarded another spot-kick in the second period.

West Ham United were unable to break down a stubborn Brighton & Hove Albion side at the Chigwell Construction Stadium as they slipped to a 0-1 defeat in Barclays FA Women's Super League. Despite creating plenty of opportunities with some good football and pacy attacking play, the Irons could not make the good positions they had assumed count, coming up against a Seagulls' shot-stopper, Cecile Fiskerstand, in resolute form. The goal was ultimately settled, against the run of play, by Rianna Jarrett's second-half finish.

Emily van Egmond’s opener – her fourth goal in five games – was followed by a first two finishes of the season by striker Leanne Kiernan. Substitute Martha Thomas also netted her first goal of the campaign against an Addicks side who saw Rachel Newborough sent off on the hour mark. An evening which saw two West Ham United debuts – for Angie Dunbar and Maisy Barker – was ended with the victory secured. The Hammers end their Group D campaign with eight points from the three games played.

A valiant West Ham United performance was not enough to overcome a Sam Kerr hat-trick, as the Irons fell to a 3-2 defeat away at reigning Barclays FA Women’s Super League champions Chelsea. The home side had taken the first-half lead through Kerr, but birthday girl Rachel Daly levelled the game just moments into the second half. While the Irons more than deserved to be level, Kerr would strike twice to put the Blues in control. A late Magdalena Eriksson own-goal would reduce the deficit.

West Ham United claimed a deserved three points with a 4-0 win away to Bristol City.  Pressure in the early exchanges led to the Hammers forcing an own-goal by Jemma Purfield on 11 minutes, before Emily van Egmond, Rachely Daly and Martha Thomas showed the away team’s quality with three excellent goals in the second period. West Ham’s early pressure counted with the third Daly corner. Under immense pressure, Jemma Purfield could only turn the ball into her own net, giving the away team a deserved lead on 11 minutes. Blustery south-west conditions saw the fixture turn a tad scrappy, with both teams looking to get a foot on the ball in midfield. Adriana Leon’s free-kick from 25 yards was deflected away, and the score-line remained 1-0 in West Ham’s favour at the interval.

With just one goal separating the two sides, West Ham went on the hunt for even further reward as the second half began. They would have had it too, had Sophie Baggaley not done superbly to deny Leon’s close-range volley at the near post. Van Egmond then saw a header from a corner go wide but the Australian would not be denied a fifth goal of the season. An excellent ball over the top was found by the rapid Thomas. The No9 collected, sent a precise cross into the area for Van Egmond to sweep home and double West Ham’s advantage. Goalscorer turned provider less than six minute later. This time, Van Egmond collected the ball out on the left wing and sent in a deep cross to the back post. Daly rose highest, getting past her marker, bulleting home her effort into the top far corner. Substitute Alisha Lehmann will feel like she should have got the team’s fourth, after Thomas played her through into space, but the fourth would come courtesy of the Hammers’ No9 with a strong finish from the edge of the box, ensuring the points headed back up to east London.

Olli Harder’s first match in charge of West Ham United ended in a narrow, and undeserved, defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur. A first half strike from substitute Lucy Quinn was the difference between the two sides. Emily van Egmond went closest for the Hammers with a headed effort in the second half. It was just eight minutes before the Hammers fashioned the first chance of the afternoon. A neat passing move in midfield saw Cho split the Tottenham defence with a lofted pass through to Van Egmond. The Australian midfielder took time to steady herself, but her tame effort was easily gathered by Becky Spencer in the Spurs goal. The Irons were assured in possession during the opening exchanges, content to occupy the Tottenham half for long spells as they looked for the breakthrough. In contrast, the visitors probed on the counter, attempting to find attacking duo Jessica Naz and Rachel Williams in the channels as much as they could. Not long after Quinn’s introduction, Tottenham Hotspur took the lead. A fizzed cross from the right hand evaded the Hammers backline and found Gemma Davison at an acute angle on the by-line.

The winger squared the ball back across goal to Quinn, who fired into the corner past Mackenzie Arnold.

West Ham United made it through to the semi-finals of the FA Women’s Continental League Cup with a comfortable 3-0 win over Durham Women at the Dagenham & Redbridge Stadium. First half strikes from Emily van Egmond and Katerina Svitková put the Hammers in a controlling position before Hawa Cissoko headed home a third late on. The win was Olli Harder’s first in charge of West Ham United, having taken charge of the women's team in late December. The Irons will now head to Kingsmeadow to play Chelsea in the semi-finals on February 3rd/4th.

Kateřina Svitková struck a second half equaliser as West Ham United salvaged a point against Bristol City at a wintry Dagenham & Redbridge Stadium. The Hammers were in danger of falling to defeat when the Robins moved in front thanks to Emily van Egmond’s unfortunate early own goal, but the hosts regrouped to claw their way back into the contest. The visitors twice hit the woodwork as they sought a second goal, but the Hammers held them at bay to earn the share of the spoils which keeps them above the Robins in the Women’s Super League table.

West Ham United were beaten 1-0 by Brighton & Hove Albion in their latest Barclays FA Women’s Super League outing at the People’s Pension Stadium. The Hammers had no response to Aileen Whelan’s first-half effort on a blisteringly cold night in West Sussex. Laura Vetterlein went the closest for West Ham, driving a free-kick back off the crossbar shortly after falling behind. The loss leaves Olli Harder’s side in 11th place in the WSL table, with just a two-point lead over Bristol City at the foot of the WSL table.

A spirited performance from West Ham United saw them battle to a 0-2 defeat to Chelsea. Goals from Sam Kerr and Bethany England secured the victory for the Blues, but the Hammers can take plenty of positives from their performance. Dagny Brynjarsdottir made her debut for Olli Harder’s side, as the New Zealander made three changes from the 1-0 defeat to Brighton almost a month ago. The home side started the brighter of the two teams, however, the away side made the breakthrough despite the early chances from the Hammers. Sam Kerr headed home from close range to put the league leaders ahead on seven minutes. Harder’s side maintained their shape and limited the Blues to very little in the way of clear-cut chances, whilst Thomas looked to make things happen on the counterattack. Chelsea came straight out of the blocks after the break, as Kerr found Bethany England at the back post, and the forward headed beyond Brosnan to double their advantage. The away side were able to keep their clean sheet in tact despite the late pressure from West Ham, as Chelsea claimed all three points at Dagenham & Redbridge stadium.

West Ham United had to settle for a point as Birmingham City equalised with seconds to play at Dagenham & Redbridge in the Barclays FA Women's Super League. The Blues took the lead early on through Emily Murphy, but Emily van Egmond scored just after the restart whilst the home side only had 10 players on the field. Katerina Svitkova rifled the ball into the net on 72 minutes, but Ruby Mace tapped home with only seconds to spare to share the spoils.

Manchester United inflicted a 2-0 defeat on West Ham United at Old Trafford. The Hammers stood firm in the opening 45 minutes, but second-half goals from Lauren James and Christen Press secured the victory for the Red Devils. This was the hosts’ first-ever fixture at the Theatre of Dreams, but Olli Harder’s side set out to spoil the celebrations. With the scores level at half-time, the second half got off to the worst possible start for Harder's side, as a corner wasn't properly cleared and Lauren James was on hand to head the home side in front on 49 minutes. Brynjarsdottir and her team-mates looked for an immediate response and the Icelandic international called Earps into her first save of the second half, as the Manchester United shot-stopper got down well to hold her effort. The home side grabbed a second with ten minutes played in the second half, Christen Press firing past Brosnan to double her side's advantage.
