5:28pm: FULL-TIME: Amazing game for Arsenal. Absolute dominance and Brighton could arguably do nothing about it apart from string together a few passes consistently. My player of the match was Leah Williamson. She got 2 assists and was at the centre of all positive play for Arsenal. Her passes, crosses and movement were wonderful and she had a great game.
