Manchester United once again reached the top of the English football rankings after a sweet 1-0 win over Arsenal.
The Manchester United women’s football team has just “regretted” the men’s success last night (November 8).

More remarkable, the Arsenal women’s team is unmatched in the English women’s football championship (WSL) with 5 wins, scoring 29 goals to concede only 5 goals. Arsenal has been a real force in English women’s football for the past 30 years.
With 3 points won, MU overcame Arsenal to take the top spot. FA Women’s Super League (WSL) with 16 points after 6 games, Arsenal dropped to second with 15 points.
MU women’s football is on the way to remake and in terms of class and reputation, they are pretty far behind Arsenal. But MU started the season extremely impressively with a series of 6 unbeaten games, including 5 wins 1 draw.
Last month, MU also defeated Tottenham 1-0 to temporarily rise to the top of the table. Currently only Chelsea, the team that has just won 4-0, can dethrone the top of the MU group. Chelsea is 3 points behind MU but 1 game has not yet remained.
After the match, hero Toone shared, “It was a great feeling. It was one of the best goals I’ve ever scored in such a big game. We have made a point and show that what we are doing can compete with the big clubs.
Besides, MU coach Casey Stoney added, “It was a big win for us. Obviously beating Arsenal is important. To be honest, it was a match where I didn’t let my students enjoy for too long. MU’s goal hasn’t changed. Manchester United try to reach the Top 3 to participate in the Champions League ”.
Meanwhile, Arsenal manager Jose Montemurro said disappointedly, “I will not make any statement about us being overtaken by MU. There seemed to be a sign that we were leaving the elite team. I will let the media write what they want. Arsenal will enter the next game with all their strength ”.
Arsenal’s next game is against Chelsea, meanwhile, Manchester United will have a Manchester derby against Manchester City later this week.
