Chelsea 1 (Scott og 8) Arsenal 2 (Losada 44, van de Donk 84)
Arsenal moved themselves into the WSL title race after a late goal earned them a win against previously unbeaten Chelsea at Wheatsheaf Park.
The Gunners are now up to third in the table, two points behind Chelsea and three behind leaders Manchester City, although the latter have a game in hand.
They had to do it the hard way against the Blues after Alex Scott's tenth minute back pass was misjudged by Sari van Veenendaal in the Gunners goal to gift wrap an early lead to their hosts.
However the Gunners fought back and Vicky Losada headed them on level terms just before the interval.
After the break, Chelsea - beaten by Arsenal in the SSE Women's FA Cup Final back in May - had chances to win it but wasted them and Danielle van de Donk made them pay when she rounded the keeper to slot home from a narrow angle late on and maintain Arsenal's unbeaten run since the mid-season break.
Chelsea: Hedvig Lindahl, Niamh Fahey, Gilly Flaherty, Jade Bailey, Hannah Blundell (sub Karen Carney 84mins), Millie Bright, Drew Spence (sub Ana Marques Borges 82mins), Claire Rafferty, Ji So-Yun, Eniola Aluko, Gemma Davison (sub Beth England 56mins). Subs not used: Rebecca Spencer, Miri Taylor.
Arsenal: Sari van Veenendaal, Alex Scott, Emma Mitchell (sub Natalia Pablos Sanchon 64mins), Casey Stoney, Josephine Henning, Fara Williams, Vicky Losada, Dominique Janssen, Danielle Carter (sub Asisat Oshoala 64mins), Danielle van de Donk, Jordan Nobbs (sub Jemma Rose 88mins).
