West Ham Women made a big step towards another solid season of Women’s Super League 1 survival last Sunday, mauling Liverpool at Rush Green, 4-2.
The Reds are bottom of the table after the result, but beating a club of that magnitude so convincingly is an impressive scalp in any format of the game.
Adriana Leon opened the scoring for Matt Beard’s men on 25 minutes, their first goal in over a month, before Martha Thomas doubled the advantage just two minutes later. The pair scored in quick succession once again the other side of half-time in the opposite order.
A late Rachel Furness brace was nothing more than a consolation for the visitors as we moved 10 points clear of relegation with eight matches remaining and a game-in-hand over a large chunk of the division.
These fans reacted to the result by discussing the men’s side ahead of Moyes’ boys own Liverpool test this Monday evening…

What are the odds Moyes sets up tomorrow like we are combining the men’s and women’s scoreline?
