Vivianne Miedema scored six and registered four assists as Arsenal put Bristol City to the sword.

Arsenal recorded the biggest victory in Women’s Super League history with an amazing 11-1 thrashing of Bristol City.

The result, which took Arsenal top, passes the previous biggest WSL score of 9-0 when Liverpool beat Doncaster Belles in the top flight in 2013.

Netherlands striker Vivianne Miedema scored six and made a further four in a remarkable individual performance.

Jordan Nobbs, Leah Williamson and Emma Mitchell also scored, while Lisa Evans netted a brace.

The Gunners had 32 shots during the game – 17 of them on target – at a rate of more than one effort on goal every three minutes.

They started the match third in the table, needing what appeared an improbable eight-goal winning margin to lift them above Chelsea and Manchester City.

As it was, incredibly they were 9-0 before the game had even reached the hour-mark.

Miedema set up the first two goals with pinpoint crosses, allowing Evans and Williamson to head home, before scoring a 21-minute hat-trick to put Arsenal 5-0 up at the break.

She scored her fourth and fifth either side of setting up Nobbs’ goal, before providing the assist for Evans’ second and completing her double hat-trick in the 64th minute.

Scotland left-back Emma Daniels stretched the lead to 11, before Yana Daniels added the smallest of consolations for Bristol City with just six minutes to go.

Her penalty was saved by Manuela Zinsberger, who had given the spot-kick away, but Daniels bundled in the rebound.
