Mana Iwabuchi and Katie McCabe also netted before Little completed the rout late on — her goals taking her to the landmark of 150 and 151 strikes for the club. 

‘To me, the finishing XI is just as important as the starting XI,’ said Eidevall, noting his side’s late flurry of goals. 

‘It’s great to finish the game off in the strongest way possible.’

Elsewhere, Fran Kirby hit a hat-trick of assists in Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Brighton. Guro Reiten, Sam Kerr and Danielle Carter netted for Emma Hayes’ side.

Hayes used her post-match comments to pay respects to murdered Sarah Everard, saying: ‘My job is about educating my son Harry to understand the importance of women.’

She added on star-of-the-match Kirby: ‘Fran at her best is one of the best. Her standards are through the roof.’
