United States women’s national team forward and two-time World Cup winner Tobin Heath made her debut with Arsenal on Sunday as they beat Manchester City 5-0.

Arsenal brushed aside the challenge of last season’s Women’s Super League runners up with goals from Kim Little, Katie McCabe, Leah Williamson and Vivianne Miedema.

A poor back pass from Alanna Kennedy on 10 minutes presented Arsenal with the ball and Miedema made no mistake in hitting it into the net.

Kim Little doubled their lead on 23 minutes after muscling off several City defenders to get her shot past Karina Benameur.

McCabe made it three on the hour mark after a long ball down the pitch sent her past Georgia Stanway and Kennedy. She cut onto her left foot and hit the ball into the net.

Arsenal were awarded a penalty on 78 minutes and, after a slight delay due to substitutions, Little converted it.

Williamson made it 5-0 four minutes into added time after heading in a late corner.
