Women’s Super League: talking points from the weekend’s action

Frida Maanum is on a mission, Brighton have found renewed hope and Manchester United suddenly looked toothlessWe had Beth Mead’s revenge tour after she was dropped from Team GB contention before the Olympics. Now the Frida Maanum revenge tour has swung into gear. The Norway midfielder has grabbed her chance to impress after spending the start of the season, and much of her time since joining Arsenal from the Swedish side Linköping, coming off the bench. The 23-year-old has four goals in five games following her strike in the 4-0 win at Leicester since she was named in the starting XI ahead of Vivianne Miedema and her impressive form has given Jonas Eidevall a headache as manager. Miedema has been granted a leave of absence to “rest and recharge” before the international break but when she returns she has the task of unseating the in-form Maanum, or reclaiming her place up top ahead of Stina Blackstenius. Having so many world-class options in a squad is a blessing but for Eidevall it could also prove a headache. Suzanne Wrack
