Manchester City have opened up a lead of two points at the top of FA WSL 1 after they defeated Bristol City 4-0.
Izzy Christiansen gave them the lead from the penalty spot with eight minutes on the clock and Claire Emslie scored against her former club to double their advantage before the break. Abbie McManus curled home a delightful goal to make it three and Jennifer Beattie completed the scoring late on.
Reading FC Women meanwhile became the first team to take points off Chelsea this season as they held them to a 2-2 draw at Adams Park. The Royals took the lead ten minutes before half time when Remi Allen scored from close range - the first league goal that Chelsea have conceded this season. Karen Carney levelled matters after the break via a free kick from the edge of the area, with Fara Williams rattling the post with another kick at the other end, and Chelsea looked to have turned the game around when Eniola Aluko put them in front with a good finish. However, Reading were not finished and in injury time at the end of an exciting encounter, Jo Potter's free kick was headed into her own net by the unfortunate Magdalena Eriksson to ensure the scores finished level.
Arsenal are up to third after three second half strikes saw them to a 3-0 victory over Sunderland. The Black Cats defended stoutly to stay on terms until just before the hour mark, when Louise Quinn headed them in front from a free kick. Vivianne Miedema curled home the second ten minutes later and Jordan Nobbs sealed the win against her old club with a free kick from the edge of the area.
Liverpool moved into the top four after they won 1-0 against Birmingham City on Saturday night. Niamh Charles neatly lobbed home the only goal of the game during the first half to settle a closely fought game and hand her team their second successive league win.
The two teams at the foot of the table met each other in a very important clash and it was Everton who triumphed 2-0 against Yeovil Town to get themselves off the mark for the season. The first goal was always going to be a vital one and it went the way of the Toffees, with Courtney Sweetman-Kirk opening the scoring on seventeen minutes. Everton wrapped up the points on the hour when Chloe Kelly netted the second from the penalty spot, following a foul on Sweetman-Kirk.
