Alessia Russo sealed a remarkable comeback in stoppage-time as Manchester United stunned Arsenal 3-2 to inflict a first defeat of the season on the WSL leaders.
Arsenal were five minutes away from a seventh-consecutive victory after second-half goals from Frida Maanum (46) and Laura Wienroither (73) cancelled out Ella Toone’s first-half opener (39).
But Miller Turner’s equaliser (85) drew United level before Russo silenced the majority of the 40,064 fans inside the Emirates Stadium when she headed a dramatic winner in off the underside of the crossbar (90+1).
United’s sixth and biggest victory of the season lifts them level on 18 points with leaders Arsenal, who tasted defeat in the WSL for the first time in 15 games.
