Arsenal:

Pauline Peyraud-Magnin: 7.5 – The sign of a good keeper is being alert despite having little to do. The save from the dangerous long-range shot by Christie Murray that she tipped over was simply superb

Dominique Bloodworth: 7,5 – A solid and uncompromising performance from the Netherlands international

Louise Quinn: 7.5 – Tough and reliable. As much as every team at Arsenal plays beautiful football and defenders are capable of playing the ball out from the back, there is something reassuring about a no-nonsense centre-half not being afraid to clear her lines by occasionally putting her foot through the ball

Lia Walti: 7.5 - Put in a shift as the Gunners shut-out a shell-shocked Liverpool side

Danielle van de Donk: 7.5 – Another who can be proud of her performance despite knowing there is still plenty more to come

Jordan Nobbs: 8 – The England international is a class act on and off the pitch. Wonderful touch, technique and vision allied with grit and a desire to win. Simply superb

Kim Little: 7.5 – Excellent finish by the captain past Reds keeper Anke Preuss on 35 minutes to make it three in a dominant start by the Gunners

Katie McCabe: 7.5 – Netherlands international striker Miedema tucked home McCabe’s cross from six yards to give Arsenal the lead

Beth Mead: 7 – Not as influential as she would have liked but still lively

Lisa Evans: 8 – Grabbed the second to put the Joe Montemurro’s men on the way to an impressive rout which fired an early shot to their title rivals

Vivianne Miedema: 9 – Hat-trick hero. Excellent movement on and off the ball coupled with clinical finishing. Superb performance as she grabbed the first Arsenal treble since the legendary Kelly Smith four years ago. With performances as good as this she could soon be viewed as an Arsenal icon too

Substitutes:

Jessica Samuelsson: 7 – On for for Evans on 67 minutes. Lively

Ava Kuyken: N/A – Replaced Little on 83 minutes. No time to make an impact with the match long won

Liverpool:

Anke Preuss: 6 – A difficult afternoon but never hid

Satara Murray: 5 – A chastening first 45 minutes but showed character in the second period

Sophie Bradley-Auckland: 5 – A day to forget

Leandra Little: 5 - Similar to many of her team-mates she is better than the scoreline suggested

Jasmine Matthews: 5 – Won’t have many fond memories of the afternoon

Leighanne Robe: 5 – Not her best afternoon

Niamh Fahey: 5 – Another with no fond memories of the lunchtime kick-off

Laura Coombs: 5 – Disappointing

Christie Murray: 6 – Could have scored with a cracking shot but Peyraud-Magin was alert to the danger

Niamh Charles: 5 – Nowhere near as influential as she would have liked

Jess Clarke: 5 – Anonymous

Substitutes:

Rinsola Babajide: 6 – On for Little 45 and helped to solidify the team after a chastening first 45 minutes

Courtney Sweetman-Kirk: N/A – Replaced Charles on 81 minutes with the match long lost
