The top two in WSL 1 are already starting to stretch away from the other teams after both made it three wins from three over the weekend despite being in the middle of Champions League ties.
Chelsea won 1-0 against Liverpool, courtesy of a Maren Mjelde goal during the first half. This keeps Emma Hayes' side ahead on goal difference from Manchester City who beat Everton 3-2. After Claudia Walker had given Everton an early lead, City hit back strongly with Steph Houghton, Nikita Parris and Pauline Bremer all scoring in a six minute spell. Simone Magill pulled one back after the break but City held on for a win which was marred when German striker Bremer suffered a broken leg shortly before half time.
Sunderland are up into third place following their 1-0 success away to Yeovil Town. Keira Ramshaw scored the only goal of the game, nine minutes before half time, to earn the Lady Black Cats their second win in three matches.
Arsenal needed to come from behind to draw 1-1 with Bristol City. Lauren Hemp put City ahead with a 20-yard strike in the first half, with Danielle van de Donk equalising after the break, and the Vixens were well worthy of a share of the spoils in a game where both sides struck the woodwork and had other chances to score.
Reading FC Women looked to be on their way towards a second straight victory, before being pegged back by Birmingham City who recovered for a 2-2 draw. Brooke Chaplen gave Reading the lead from the penalty spot and Jade Moore added a second, with Aoife Mannion pulling one back via a penalty on the stroke of half time. Late Birmingham pressure eventually paid off when Emily Westwood equalised deep into injury time with a header.
