Sam Kerr and Hayley Raso both were among the goals on Sunday in the Women’s English Super League, with the latter capping an excellent week for her at Manchester City.
Hayley Raso came off the bench in the 69th minute and grabbed a winner six minutes later in City’s 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Sunday.
Raso fired in at the second attempt from close range after her initial effort was saved by Liverpool goalkeeper Rachael Laws after Khadifa Shaw’s throughball.
The goal comes after Raso had scored and provided an assist in City’s midweek League Cup 6-0 win over Blackburn Rovers.
Mary Fowler, who came on in the 81st minute against Liverpool, scored a double in that midweek win.
Sam Kerr added Chelsea’s third goal in their 3-1 win over Aston Villa, slotting home Lauren James’ pass in the 63rd minute after a defensive error.
The goal is Kerr’s second of the WSL season and comes after netting four times in Chelsea’s midweek UEFA Champions League 8-0 win over Vllaznia.
Emily Gielnik remains sidelined for Villa with a calf issue.
Steph Catley got an assist as Arsenal came from behind to win 3-1 over West Ham United, who were without Mackenzie Arnold after a niggle last week.
Catley made an inexplicable error with a backpass leading to West Ham’s opener, but she whipped in the pass from a set-piece for Stina Blackstenius to put them 2-1 up in the 53rd minute. Caitlin Foord started and played 71 minutes.
Clare Wheeler made her WSL starting debut and put in a full shift as Everton lost 3-0 at home to Manchester United.
Chloe Logarzo was an unused substitute as Kansas City Current lost USA’s NWSL Championship game 2-0 to Portland Thorns on Saturday.
An unforgettable, historic season. We’re just getting started.
