Caitlin Foord scored a stunning goal and Arsenal used four goals in a devastating 12 minutes to emerge from the jaws of defeat at Leicester City in the Women’s Super League (WSL).
Arsenal trailed Courtney Nevin’s Leicester City 2-0 away from home in the WSL on Monday (AEDT), however, the visitors scored six unanswered second-half goals to win 6-2.
Two goals in as many minutes from Sam Tierney and Janice Cayman had Leicester in control at King Power Stadium, where Matildas sensation Kyra Cooney-Cross made her starting WSL debut for Arsenal having also started the Conti Cup win over Bristol City during the week.
The Gunners, however, flipped the match on its head in the second half.
Cloe Lacasse reduced the deficit in the 49th minute before Arsenal teammate Alessia Russo equalised three minutes later.
Matildas star Foord put Arsenal ahead with a sublime finish in the 58th minute – her first WSL goal of the season.
It was one-way traffic from that point as Victoria Pelova made it 4-2 three minutes later before Stina Blackstenius added a fifth in the 75th minute and Lina Hurtig capped the comeback in the eighth minute of stoppage time.
Arsenal are now second in the standings, three points adrift of Sam Kerr’s defending champions Chelsea through six rounds.
