Vivianne Miedema wins WSL October player of the month award

4

Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema has been voted the Barclays WSL Player of the Month for October, fending off competition from Gunners teammate Katie McCabe, Manchester United striker Alessia Russo, Everton’s Claire Emslie and Birmingham City’s Rachel Corsie.

Miedema scored six goals and made one assist in October, with strikes against Bristol City, a double away at Brighton and a first-half hat-trick at home to Sp*rs. In that Sp*rs game, she broke the WSL goalscoring record, taking her to 52 WSL goals in just 50 WSL appearances.

Miedema is the second Arsenal player to win the player of the month award this season, with Viv’s compatriot Jill Roord winning the award in September after she bagged back-to-back hat-tricks in the Gunners’ opening two games against Reading and West Ham United.

Is she bovvered?

We love Viv and I guess becoming record WSL goalscorer helped her cause but why do these awards so often overlook contributions to the team, for example, Caitlin’s 4 goals and 5 assists in 5 games. Should have been a contender, no?

Congratulations Viv, well deserved.

It must be nice to have such a deadly striker able to play through the centre and score at will at your disposal.
