Arsenal's Alex Scott scores incredible 40 yard own goal in WSL against London rivals Chelsea

40-yard goals are nearly always impressive but when it’s an own goal it’s a very different kind of impressive. Alex Scott of Arsenal Ladies gifted Chelsea Ladies the lead when her perhaps overenthusiastic pass back to team-mate Sari van Veenendaal who possibly could have got to it but Scott took full ownership of the incredible blunder. Luckily for her, the team managed to pull back in the London derby for a 2-1 win, otherwise she might not have heard the end of it.
