Liverpool survived a second half fightback by Arsenal for a 4-4 draw which keeps them on top of the FA WSL 1 Spring Series.
Alex Greenwood gave Liverpool the lead in bizarre fashion when she scored direct from a corner and after Chloe Kelly equalised for the Gunners, goals in quick succession from Natasha Harding and Caroline Weir put Liverpool 3-1 ahead at the break.
In the second half, Arsenal came out strongly and two well taken goals from Danielle Carter brought them back on terms, before Jordan Nobbs completed the comeback as she put them ahead for the first time. Liverpool weren't finished though and Gemma Bonner headed an equaliser to finally end the scoring and put her side one point ahead at the top of the table.
Chelsea continued their ominous start to the Series on Wednesday night as they ran out 4-0 winners away to Reading FC Women. Karen Carney headed them in front just after the half hour and in the second half, Drew Spence doubled their lead. Ji So-Yun powered home the third shortly after coming on as a substitute and Hannah Blundell rounded off the scoring nine minutes from time.
Bristol City sit in third place in the table after narrowly getting the better of Yeovil Town in their West Country derby match with a 3-2 win. Claire Emslie gave City the lead early on from the penalty spot, before Yeovil hit back to equaliser through a deft header from Ann Marie Heatherson. Sarah Wiltshire then gave Yeovil the lead for the first time but just three minutes later, a neat finish from Chloe Arthur brought the scores level again. Arthur was to have the final say when, with two minutes remaining, her deflected shot completed her double and gave the Vixens their first points of the Series.
Manchester City belatedly opened their campaign due to their Champions League commitments and found themselves up against Birmingham City in a dress rehearsal for the SSE Women's FA Cup Final. Emily Westwood headed the Blues in front on the quarter hour and after the break, a well taken goal from Lucy Bronze gave City a share of the spoils as the match finished 1-1.
