Arsenal's 3-2 victory over Chelsea today predicts a tough WSL season for the defending champions.

Arsenal women's team were able to hold unto their 3-2 lead from 64 minutes till the end of a five-goal thriller in their opening match against the defending champions, Chelsea, at the Emirates stadium.

Sensational dutch attacker, Vivianne Miedema struck on 14 minutes to put the host ahead before Erin Cuthbert made it 1-1 shortly before halftime.

Arsenal stepped on the accelerator at the resumption of the second half with English striker Beth Mead making it 2-1 on 49 minutes. The striker added another on the hour mark to make it 3-1 for the Arsenal women.

Chelsea came back fighting like a wounded lion and they got a second goal just 4 minutes after to make it 3-2.

Both teams missed several chances from then on but, Arsenal was able to hold onto the lead until the end of the game.

The Chelsea women team only lost one game when they lifted the trophy last season. However, it appears it is not going to be a walk in the Park for the Blues with the kind of performance put up by Arsenal today.

The gunners ended last season in third place on the log and hope to improve on their performances this time.
