HIGHLIGHTS | Arsenal vs Crystal Palace (9-0) | Montemurro signs off in style!

Opublikowany 18 maj 2021
Joe Montemurro’s final game as head coach will certainly go down as a memorable one, as we beat Crystal Palace 9-0 to finish our season and reach the quarter-finals of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup.

Our head coach will depart north London with an outstanding record of 85 wins in 108 games - and this was yet another thrilling attacking performance that we’ve come to expect during his time at the club.

There was plenty of positive news in our starting XI too, as Steph Catley made her first start since returning from injury, while Anna Patten was included at the heart of our defence.

We made a fast start at Meadow Park and took the lead after just six minutes. Jordan Nobbs received the ball with her back to goal and beat her marker with an improvised flick, forcing a foul from the defender and winning a penalty. Kim Little stepped up and made no mistake in finding the bottom corner.

Chloe Morgan then went on to make a number of impressive saves, denying Caitlin Foord and Nobbs, before Beth Mead broke free down the right wing and fired back across the keeper to double our advantage.

Danielle van de Donk made it three with just seconds remaining of the first half, applying the finishing touch to a slick counter-attacking move.

We stepped things up a gear in the second half too and after a fortunate bounce on the edge of the area, the ball dropped to Noelle Maritz who unleashed a powerful strike into the bottom corner for her first Arsenal goal.

Nobbs made it five with a thumping finish following some fine footwork from Foord, before the substitutes combined as Vivianne Miedema latched on to Jill Roord’s delivery to head home at the far post.

As we approached the final five minutes we could have easily dropped off and maintained possession without purpose, but that’s never been the Montemurro way.

After announcing her departure to Wolfsburg last week, Roord put her name on the scoresheet as an Arsenal player just one last time, firing home from close range, before Maritz scored her second of the afternoon, applying the all-important touch at the end of a smart team move.

We weren’t done there, though, and with just seconds remaining, Katie McCabe stood over a free-kick from 20 yards and rifled the ball into the bottom corner.

It was an outstanding team performance from start to finish - and the perfect send off for our head coach.

Enjoy match highlights, training and behind the scenes to get closer to the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, David Luiz, Vivianne Miedema, Nicolas Pepe, Alexandre Lacazette, Leah Williamson, Bernd Leno, Danielle van de Donk, Willian, Hector Bellerin, Jordan Nobbs, Bukayo Saka, Kim Little, Gabriel Martinelli, Thomas Partey and more.

  • Hearing that terrible goal music once is already aggravating, but for those CP girls to hear that 9 times? Lmao

  • Hey Mr DJ - no comp on de replay: just change the freakin' music for frog's sake. Instead of the terminally annoying 'Tom Hark' after every goal, how about a bit of variety, eh? Maybe chime in with 'Mouldy Ol' Dough' sometimes and 'Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep' for a second alternative. lol. You wouldn't ever want to score for this team, if you knew it meant 'Tom Hark'. It would drive a woman mad ...or make her flee the country to Germany ...or maybe start her own team entirely, in Holland, so she had control over the goal music. Learn the lesson, Arsenal. Change your tune!

  • That music tho 😂😂

  • ❤️

  • Music was crackinggg

  • Menang 3-0 .. dh la ini 9-0 kene titik member ... Aduhhhhh kesian

  • We should let our women play in epl instead of our boys..😂😂

  • This Women's team should exchange with the Men's team.

  • Crystal are getting nailed by Arsenal both sides😂😂

  • Go lady keeps the winning up

  • I’d average 38 goals a game no assists 1 vs 11

  • Womans football is so bad even the hilights are hard to watch, could only watch for 1 minute. Womans defending is non existent and pure comedy, and dont get me started on woman goalkeepers, might as well have cardboard cut outs in goal.

  • What's that noise behind every goal?? 😅😅😅

  • geeeeez 9 nil

  • Rukhana runo totoo

  • 🔴⚪🔴⚪♥♥

  • 👏👏👏👏

  • Kasian kipernya woyyy 😂😂😂

  • The only thing those Palace women did well throughout the match, was to kick the ball out of the net after every goal

  • Finally arsenal release the highlight as requested

  • 🦾💯🦾💯🦾💯

  • 4:59 I didnt know Tierney played for the women as well.. LoL

  • wow 9-0 goals, sad palace

  • Crystal Palace's defense is literally non-existent.

  • Hi

  • Who came out with that music for every goal score? It likes we were playing in the funfair ground.

  • Has there ever been an arsenal tournament like between the men's team, women's team, and the under 23s, 18s just for fun? Would be cool to have one.

  • Is this even legal

  • Really good defending tutorial from Crystal Palace 👍😊

  • Well to be fair crystal Palace did get done in by a bunch of 50 year overweight men

  • Eta Neng Vivianne kunaon siga kirang Fit? Nuju cidera sugan? Pemaen favorit Neng Vivianne mah... Mantaap... Nuhun kanggo sadaya pemaen.. hade pisan maen bola na... Ajiib... Go Gunners..

  • New kits to Big Win! cool~

  • Great win big lead... where is arteta :( why we are in number 8?

  • Van de donk.. please stay. ♥️

  • Was kinda feeling sorry the Palace girls..

  • Arsenal Men's team is so hopeless that they have to post women team now

  • Wow, the women are better then the men

  • They don't even Celebrate scoring goals and then there same men's who celebrate scoring an equaliser The difference is unique

  • they don’t even look excited to score half the time 😂 they are just that good

    • I mean after the 4th one it is like why keep score??? Lmaoooo😄😂

  • yesssss go ladies

  • The new jersey looks like a dry shamwow lol

  • Man that tune is like there`s ice cream truck anthem 🤣🤣🤣

  • that is some of the worst defending ive ever seen. like 5 goals inside the 6 yard box? what a mess.

  • What happened to miedema?? Good lord she is playing too many times outside the box why isnt she plying in het favorite number 9 position.. she doesnt score that many goals anymore..

  • The 14 from palace was a bit their weak link to be honest

  • Hope the male team can replicate this tomorrow

  • Low quality rubbish.

  • Congratulations on securing CL football ladies

  • Why only one camera? Seriously when a player trips on his shoe laces, in the premier league, you get 2 thousand angles and it zooms in so close you can see his DNA. Surely they can fork out for a couple more cameras. The slow motion was terrible as well. Don’t even have the score in the corner of the screen.

  • Nice way to honor our new jersey 👌

  • Weldon Girls

  • Why use one angle camera ... This is not fair ?

  • Can we please get that track to the emirates XD

  • Our women team is so serious I wish our men were

  • i wonder what the arsenal women fans think about kroenke

  • Least the ladies are doing the job. Well done👏

  • *Thank You Joe Montemurro* Fantastic coach.. great person..

  • Miedama reminds me of haaland

  • Come play for the men’s team please

  • Arsenal ladies can humiliate

  • Gunners Women are on 🔥 Fire 🔥

  • We smashed palce the new away kit is horrible just ashame the men's team is not very good at the moment.

  • A perfect team, free flowing attack, resilient defence, routined set-pieces, clinical finishers, winning mentality, Joe has undoubtedly done a remarkable job. Certainly will keep his place in our history books for a long long time.

  • The music is funny 😂😂😂

  • Hopefully the men plays like this against crystal palace!

  • arsenal, Fc. Ladies F.A.Cup, 2021, Was I The Only Person To Notice That Arsenal NEVER Got A Single Mention In The Uk Press And Media Not Once, All Though The Weekend,!!!!!??????
