Kyra Cooney-Cross marked his excellent recent run of form with two assists as Arsenal beat Mackenzie Arnold’s West Ham United 3-0 in the English Women’s Super League on Sunday.
Cooney-Cross, who moved from Swedish club Hammarby to Arsenal in September, has put together a run of three consecutive league starts for the Gunners.
The Matildas midfielder produced some beautiful play to set up Frida Maanum’s second-minute strike, before laying off the pass for Beth Mead to make it 2-0 in the 18th minute.
Cooney-Cross along with Steph Catley and Caitlin Foord all played full games for the Gunners, while Arnold put in a full shift for the struggling Hammers.
Beautiful midfield play from @kyracooneyx 👏
🔴 1-0 ⚒️ (13)

Sam Kerr followed up her midweek UEFA Champions League hat-trick against Paris FC with another goal for Chelsea in their 5-2 win over Leicester City in the WSL on Sunday.
Kerr netted the Blues’ third goal to make it 3-1 in the 40th minute, converting from Niamh Charles’ ball into the box. Kerr was replaced in the 81st minute.
The Matildas captain had fired three past Paris in midweek, meaning Kerr now has six goals in her past five games and seven strikes for the 2023-24 season with three assists.
Niamh does brilliantly to skip past her player and drill the ball into the box, Sammy K was there to fire in our third! 💥 https://t.co/83ejG7r5rq
