Arsenal’s new signing Emily Fox loving life at North London

Emily Fox is thoroughly enjoying her time at Arsenal, where her “self-confidence and assertiveness” have been praised by Gunners boss Jonas Eidevall.

The 25-year-old U.S. Women’s National Team (USWNT) star is embracing her first experience in England after joining the north London club in early January.

While Fox has 39 caps with USWNT, the adaptation to the Women’s Super League (WSL) is always a unique challenge for newcomers.

Fox has gracefully navigated and embraced the challenges, effortlessly fitting into Arsenal’s strategic plans as a refined full-back. Her noteworthy performance was evident in a commanding 2-0 triumph for the Gunners against Liverpool, where she played a crucial role in securing a clean sheet. Notably, England star Leah Williamson did not need to step off the bench, as she continues her recovery from a significant ACL injury.

Eidevall was full of praise for Fox, telling reporters after watching the United States international star on Merseyside: “Superb. She plays with a lot of self confidence and assertiveness, you can see a lot of the qualities we rated in her so highly when we looked at full-backs. Her versatility and her ability to handle one v one situations. But also really good passing and combination play. She offers a lot of things that fits very well to an Arsenal player.”

Arsenal remains firmly in contention for the 2023-24 WSL title, securing another valuable victory that positions them in third place on the table. They share the same point total as Manchester City and are only three points behind defending champions Chelsea. The upcoming fixture for Arsenal is a London derby against West Ham, presenting another opportunity to advance their position in the title race.
