But it was following the contest when Kerr hit back after being greeted by boisterous Gunners fans while she sat stuck in traffic.

Nearby fans broke out into chants of “Arsenal, Arsenal” in the direction of Kerr sitting in the passenger seat.

The Aussie striker, quick as a flash, threw up four fingers to remind her foes just how many Women’s Super League titles Chelsea have won.

Chelsea have dominated the competition, winning the past four titles and look on track to make it five straight.

Fans however were quick to point out that Kerr flashed the exact number of goals her club had surrendered in their first loss of the season.

“They were the better team today. We’ll go back and review it. It’s pretty hard with all the emotions to see what went wrong,” Kerr told Optus.

“Obviously a disappointing performance from us but we’ll be there at the end of the season, for sure. This game won’t derail us or dictate how the season will end.”

The quiet outing by the normally dominant star was her first appearance after she missed the Matildas’ two games against Canada, which the Aussies lost 6-0 and 1-0.

“It’s been a rough three months for me, to be honest, I’ve been battling calf, foot, knee … but I’ve got to do what’s best for me, the Matildas, Chelsea,” she said.

“At the end of the day I’m a 30-year-old now, I’m not 21, so I’m doing what’s best for me and my career.”

While Kerr has dealt with injury struggles on the pitch, off the pitch she’s kicking goals all over the place.

Kerr unveiled a completely new look as she appeared as the cover story for the latest edition of Esquire Australia.

But the biggest news of all was Kerr’s engagement to partner Kristie Mewis following months of speculation from internet sleuths.

The duo confirmed the worst kept secret in November after Mewis had sent the internet into meltdown with an Instagram upload that showed her sporting a large rock on her left ring finger in September.

The pair, who went public with their relationship in 2021, have become a football power couple that send fans wild with any uploads to their social media channels.
