This includes a 7-0 rout of Blackburn Rovers in the FA WSL Cup.

Lehmann scored a brace in that contest but found herself back on the bench against Everton, who earned a 2-1 win at Villa Park thanks to an own goal from Anna Patten and a 74th minute penalty from Nathalie Bjorn.

Lehmann came on as a substitute just after the hour mark but ultimately failed to make a meaningful impact as Villa slumped to their sixth loss in eight games at the start of the 2023-24 WSL campaign.

The 24-year-old reacted to Villa’s latest setback on her Instagram stories, and issued a rallying cry to her team-mates.

“Hard to take. But we keep going and stick together,” Lehmann wrote.

Villa scored 14 goals during their recent four-match winning run, and created plenty of chances once again on Sunday afternoon.

England international, Rachel Daly, did get Villa back into the game in the 55th minute as she smartly turned a Kirsty Hanson cross into the net at the near post.

However, it proved to be nothing more than a consolation goal.
