Rachel Furness drew Liverpool level on the brink of half-time, before Dutch international and WSL top scorer Miedema grabbed the winner — her 16th of the season — with 12 minutes of normal time remaining.
Arsenal’s victory was marred by an injury to England international Beth Mead, who was forced off early in the second half.
