Arsenal’s Katie McCabe and Frida Maanum have been named in the Her Football Hub team of the week after the Gunners 3-0 victory over Everton on Sunday afternoon at Meadow Park. 

Both players found themselves on the scoresheet as the Gunners went three points clear at the top of the Women’s Super League table, and are now the only team with a one hundred per-cent winning record following Tottenham Hotspur’s loss to Brighton & Hove Albion.

McCabe put the Gunners ahead with a stunning volley, before Maanum sealed the victory with one of the goals of the season so far when she picked the ball up from outside the box before drilling her strike into the top corner beyond the reach of Sandy MacIver in the visitors goal.

Arsenal took the lead in the 32nd minute ,when McCabe let fly with a stunning strike from range after the Everton defence could only half clear a floated ball in from Leah Williamson aiming for Miedema.

The ball came back out to McCabe who hit a first time volley over the head of MacIver and into the back of the net.
