Jordan Nobbs admitted that the opening goal changed the game as Arsenal ran out 3-0 winners over Chelsea to keep up their FA WSL title challenge.
The game remained in the balance until midway through the second half and the teenage midfielder told Women's Soccer Scene afterwards: "The first half was a bit of a battle and we didn't get stuck into it.
"But once the first goal came, we definitely got back on track and stuck to what we were better at and we got three great goals today.
"We were a bit sloppy at times but Chelsea defended really well and they kept at it but once we got in front we got the momentum and kept going."
Jordan was heavily involved when Arsenal did take the lead, supplying the defence splitting pass which released Rachel Yankey to score. "It was about time one went through," she laughed, "but it was good to be a part of the goal and it was a great finish from Rachel Yankey."
The rest of the match belonged to substitute Danielle Carter who killed off any hopes of a Chelsea comeback with two outstanding strikes from outside the area. "Dan's been coming on and she's been getting stronger and stronger and she showed today that she's got the power to get great goals," said Jordan. "That's what we needed on the day and she did a really great job of that."
Now Arsenal enter a crucial week in their title quest, starting with a tough trip to in-form Everton on Sunday. "We're never going to underestimate any teams," Jordan insisted, "but we just need to be a little more clinical and start off how we finished."
