Chelsea hit top spot
 Women's Football News 13 May 2013

Chelsea have stormed to the top of the FA WSL table after coming from behind to defeat in-form Liverpool 2-1 at Wheatsheaf Park. 
Reds boss Matt Beard, who left Chelsea last summer, endured an unhappy return as goals from Sofia Jakobsson and Eniola Aluko allowed the Blues to continue their unbeaten start to the season.
Liverpool enjoyed success in the capital earlier this week when they hammered Arsenal 4-0 and they looked to be on course for more of the same when they look the lead after just six minutes. A short corner was played to Corina Schroder on the right hand side and her flighted cross was headed beyond Shannon Lynn by the unmarked Whitney Engen.
Liverpool continued to dominate for the next 20 minutes but couldn't turn their superiority into goals, with the lively duo of Amanda Da Costa and Nicole Rolser unable to find the back of the net with their efforts.
Chelsea drew confidence from Liverpool's failure to add to their lead, and Aluko gave a glimpse of her threat when she burst into the box, only to see her low shot smothered by Sarah Quantrill. However, the hosts were level just before the half-hour mark when Jakobsson skilfully evaded a couple of challenges on the edge of the box and planted a superb left footed shot into the top left hand corner.
Suddenly it was Liverpool who were on the back foot, although Chelsea could not press home their advantage before the interval but they deservedly took the lead 11 minutes after the restart.
Engen did well to thwart Helen Ward, who was bearing down on goal, but the ball broke to Aluko, who lashed it past Quantrill from eight yards out.
Liverpool failed to replicate the momentum they had exhibited in the opening twenty minutes but had chances to equalise.
Goalkeeper Lynn came to Chelsea's rescue in the final stages, first denying Da Costa with an acrobatic save, before showing terrific reflexes to keep out substitute Lillie Fenlon-Billson's poked shot from inside the six yard box.
Chelsea: Shannon Lynn, Dunia Susi, Edina Gardarsdottir, Ester Dos Santos, Kylie Davies, Katie Holtham, Olina Vidarsdottir, Danielle Buet, Eniola Aluko, Helen Ward, Sofia Jakobsson (sub Kate Longhurst 90mins).

Liverpool: Sarah Quantrill, Lucy Bronze, Corina Schroder (sub Becky Easton 73mins), Fara Williams, Gemma Bonner, Whitney Engen, Amanda Da Costa, Katrin Omarsdottir (sub Lillie Billson 68mins), Natasha Dowie, Louise Fors, Nicole Rolser.
