Manchester City preserved their lead of two points in WSL 1 with a 5-2 victory at Reading FC Women.
Nadia Nadim made her debut for the club after joining during the transfer window and the Danish striker took just six minutes to get on the scoresheet and give her new side the lead. Claire Emslie added a second just after the half hour mark and although Reading battled back well to level the scores through Remi Allen and a stunning Brooke Chaplen strike, Izzy Christiansen ensured that City led at the interval and Jill Scott made the points safe with two second half goals in a three minute spell.
Chelsea stay on their heels in second place but only after narrowly getting the better of Arsenal in a five-goal thriller. Maren Mjelde netted the only goal of the first half for Chelsea but ten minutes into the second half, the Gunners were back on level terms thanks to Vivianne Miedema. Ji So-Yun restored Chelsea'a lead on the hour, with Dominique Janssen equalising three minutes later, before an own goal from the unfortunate Sari Van Veenendaal, seven minutes from time, gave Chelsea a 3-2 victory.
Liverpool have climbed into the top three, their highest position of the season to date, after scoring eight times without reply past Yeovil Town whose nightmare season continues. The Reds opened the scoring in the seventeenth minute when a Caroline Weir shot was deflected in off Ann Marie Heatherson and Beth England added two further goals before the break. Weir then got on the scoresheet herself, six minutes after the restart, before England completed her hat-trick and went on to add a fourth, the other side of a goal from Jess Clarke, and Laura Coombs rounded off the scoring with fifteen minutes remaining.
Sunderland are in mid-table following their 3-0 victory over Birmingham City. After a goalless first half, Dominique Bruinenberg put Wearsiders in front ten minutes into the second half and they sealed a well earned win when Hayley Sharp and Abbey Joice added further goals late on.
Bristol City claimed their second league win of the season and moved two places up the table when beating Everton 2-1. Lauren Hemp fired the Vixens in front after ten minutes and the young striker scored her second from the penalty spot midway through the second half, after Yana Daniels was tripped in the area. Everton pulled a goal back when Georgia Brougham bundled in from a corner and despite a nervy last ten minutes for the home side, they held on for three important points.
