“We dug deep defensively and did enough to win it. She just wants to play football, it was a fantastic strike. I thought they should have had a penalty. But I felt we should have had one in the first half. So swings and roundabouts.
“We're taking one game at a time. There's no pressure on us because Chelsea won again. It'll be a good second half of the season. We'll regroup and focus for Notts County next week,” he added.
The goal against the Arsenal Ladies is Oshoala’s third in six games since joining the club.
