Vivianne Miedema scored twice in Arsenal’s commanding 4-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur in front of a Women’s Super League record crowd of 47,367 at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

Dutch international Miedema struck in either half after Beth Mead scored the opener, with Rafaelle Souza also getting on the scoresheet in a dominant performance for the hosts.

Mead, who finished England’s victorious Euro 2022 campaign as the tournament’s top scorer, had netted twice against Brighton & Hove Albion last weekend and continued her fine form by curling home a sublime goal after five minutes on the clock.

Miedema doubled Arsenal’s lead six minutes before the break, slotting past goalkeeper Rebecca Spencer with ease after Spurs carelessly gave away possession deep inside their own half.

Rafaelle found the back of the net with a towering header before Miedema got her second, nodding home Steph Catley’s cross after beating Spencer to the ball from close range.

The previous attendance record of 38,262 was set in the reverse fixture in 2019 when Arsenal won 2-0 at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in the WSL’s first north London derby.
