Arsenal beat Sunderland 3-1 in the Womens' Super League on Saturday evening to keep their title chances alive.
The Gunners went ahead after quarter of an hour when Chioma Ubogagu capitalised on a loose ball in the box. Sunderland hit back immediately as Beth Mead rounded Sari Van Veenendaal and slotted the ball into an empty net.
Danielle Carter almost got lucky when her powerful strike was saved but the sides headed into the interval deadlocked.
Ubogagu restored the visitors' lead early on in the second half when she applied the finishing touch to Alex Scott's pass.
Natalia put the game beyond doubt fifteen minutes from the end when she lobbed Hilde Gunn Olsen following a defensive mix up.
