Just like their male team, Arsenal’s women team used to be known as serial winners of different trophies, but unfortunately, both of them have become symbols of winless club when it comes to winning trophies. Though the male team have won some minor trophies in recent years like the FA Cup, Emirates Cup, etc, while the female team is bereft of any trophy for many years. On the other hand, it has been four years since the female Gunners last won any trophy.
But Arsenal’s women team have been able to break that jinx after deservedly beating their London arch rival, Chelsea 3-1 in the final match of the Continental League Cup played on Sunday March 5, 2023 at the Selhurst Park. Prior to the game, bookmakers gave it to Chelsea, especially looking at the recent thrashing of Arsenal 2-0 by same Chelsea.
Fortunately enough for Arsenal, and similar to the characteristics of their male counterpart, they proved bookmakers wrong by emerging champions when no one actually gave them a chance. As such, bringing back the sweet memories of those glory days, memories of trophy laden seasons, as their Sunday victory increased their League Cup titles to six on the trophy cabin.
Many of those who have reacted to the victory by Arsenal have described their performance as one deserving the victory in the end, as they played with so much determination, desire, passion and unmatched hunger to win.
On the other hand, the victory will be one of the sweetest moments for Arsenal women team going by how much pains and misery Chelsea has inflicted on them in recent years. Also, prior to this match, Arsenal have played Chelsea five times without recording a single win, iincluding their 2-0 defeat few days ago in the hands of same Chelsea.
So, it was a single victory worth more than a million.
