SOME headaches usually lead people to seek medication.
But in the case of Jonas Eidevall, that particular headache is a selection – and a pleasant one if Arsenal beat Liverpool 2-0.
The Gunners fired on all cylinders in a solid performance at the home of the Merseyside giants
The result saw her snatch her 12th Victory in a row in the premier class.
A win that sees them equal the league record set by themselves and Manchester City.
To make matters worse, the high-flyers from Eidevall also kept their 10th Keeping a clean sheet, a feat that saw them go 1003 minutes without conceding a goal.
Among the artists who wowed visitors was Frida Maanum.
The Gunners’ ace was a threat in midfield alongside Kim Little and Lia Walti as Arsenal managed to win the game as usual and dominate the game for big periods.
Any hopes of the Reds beating another WSL title chaser were dashed with Maanum – among today’s top scorers – justifying why she was in Eidevall’s starting XI.
The WSL ace helped Arsenal resume business as usual after beating Lyon 5-1, with Eidevall keeping the same line-up.
Keeping Maanum on his side, the Arsenal boss told BBC Sport: “It’s a pleasant headache, isn’t it?
“It’s also a really good sign for any player who wants to see what you do when you don’t get chances.
“People remember when you play, they don’t remember when you don’t play, so let it be.”

The result sent the Gunners into action for the third time in seven days, with Caitlin Foord delivering a match-performance player.
Eidevall added: “It was difficult, it’s difficult to play a third away game in a week. I like the heart we put on the pitch today.
“We work extremely hard for each other.
“We showed that we fit in with them and we were very good at expressing ourselves on the ball. That’s the difference.”
Gunners forward Foord said: “We had a short turn and a bit of travel.
“We definitely felt it towards the end and it was agony to see the game finish.
“But if we say that, we also had a lot of chances and could have gone a little bit forward.”
Matt Beard’s aces started strong at Prenton Park and refused to be intimidated.
But the visitors got into their groove as Captain Little, Foord and Lia Walti among the players pulled the strings.
Walti gave Arsenal the lead when he brought the opener home from the edge of the box in the 15th minute.
The visitors soon doubled their lead eight minutes later when Foord served to Maanum, who netted after a deft footwork.
Liverpool tried to fight their way back into the box with a few threatening corners and deliveries.
They caused some trouble in the away box early in the second half, looking for a handball after Emma Koivisto’s shot found Foord.
And they were close to pulling one back when Niamh Fahey shot wide of the far post before Beth Mead smacked an injury-time shot over the bar.
The result saw Arsenal go top ahead of Manchester United’s trip to Leicester.
It also left Liverpool in the hunt for their second win of the season with a Conti Cup clash with Leicester next ahead of a league trip to Man City.
The Reds are currently ninth after losing three in a row following their opening day loss to Chelsea.
