 Everton lost their return to the league, but Arsenal defeated the Blues 2-1 at Meadow Park.

It was a very typical performance from Brian Sorensen's team against one of England's best sides.

Katya Snize continued her strong start to the year, canceling out Kaitlyn Ford's earlier goal. However, it was the hosts who grabbed a point in first-half stoppage time with a header from Beth Mead.

Boss Sorensen has announced that he will not change the name of the team that beat Aston Villa 3-0 in their first game of the year.

The home team got off to a strong start, attacking from the early stages and scoring in the 9th minute.

Viktoria Belova flicked the ball across goal and Ford fired a shot past a helpless Courtney Brosnan.

Arsenal were growing in confidence but suffered a blow when the Toffees equalized.

Last weekend's top scorer, Caroline Olesen, and Snows played a great pass to the Dutch striker who darted forward.

The winner was none other than Manuela Zinsberger, who scored her first goal of the season in the 24th minute when Snowy coolly slotted the ball into the far corner.

The equalizing goal seemed to encourage the visitors to move on ahead of Saturday's match.

Everton put up a good performance against the hosts but suffered a major setback when Arsenal regained the lead five minutes into first-half stoppage time.

The invitation to Leah Walty's house was delivered by Meade after Brosnan.

Everton performed well in the second half against a superior Arsenal side, but a brutal goal from Sorensen meant they were unable to break down the Gunners' defence.

The Blues are back next week with a double-header against Leicester City. The Foxes host Everton in the League Cup on Wednesday night, with the Women's Super League return leg taking place on Sunday afternoon.
