Emma Mitchell produced a moment of magic on her return from injury on Saturday, scoring an 88th-minute winner in our 1-0 victory over Manchester City.
The 26-year-old defender played a key role in our nine-game winning streak at the start of the Women’s Super League season – but has since been fighting her way back to full fitness.
What better way to mark your return than by scoring a Goal of the Season contender?
“I can’t commend Mitch enough,” Joe Montemurro told Arsenal.com.
“She’s gone through a tough time over the past six to eight weeks, so we put in a little plan to build her up and get her ready for the World Cup – and then she only goes and does that!
“It’s really funny because if you watch it back you can see the reaction on her face when it goes in – and she’s in complete and utter disbelief! I think we all are!”
