Man City maintain two point lead
 Women's Football WSL1 News - 31 Jan 2018
 
Manchester City and Chelsea kept the gap at the top of WSL 1 at two points as both sides recorded victories ahead of their first league meeting of the season on Thursday night.
 
Leaders Man City made it seven wins out of seven with a 3-0 success away to Sunderland. They took the lead nine minutes before half time, when Issy Christiansen headed an Abbie McManus cross back across goal for Nikita Parris to score from close range. The two players reversed their roles just ahead of the hour mark for the second, this time a swift counter attack ended with Parris crossing for Christiansen to head powerfully home, before Parris rounded off the scoring with her second goal.
 
Chelsea meanwhile made sure of staying on City's heels but needed a late goal in order to win 1-0 against a valiant Everton side. Indeed, the Toffees could have taken a first half lead but Courtney Sweetman-Kirk struck the post with a penalty and had other chances to score, before Chelsea began to take control after the break although they came up against Everton keeper Lizzie Durack in fine form. The game looked to be heading for a draw until six minutes from time, when Jonna Andersson fired home her first goal for the club and secured three valuable points for her side.
 
Liverpool are continuing to have a good season and consolidated themselves in third place by beating Bristol City 2-0. The first half ended goalless but within a minute of the restart, the Reds found themselves in front when Beth England converted from a Jess Clarke cross. England then scored her sixth goal in two league matches when she fired home from 25 yards to maintain her side's promising form.
 
Reading FC Women and Arsenal battled out a goalless draw which means that both teams lose a little ground on the top three. Both teams had chances to score in an openly contested game, Fara Williams and Brooke Chaplen bringing out good saves from Sari van Veenendal whilst Jordan Nobbs and Vivianne Miedema both went close for the Gunners.
 
Birmingham City made it two wins on the trot and are up into mid-table following their 3-0 victory over Yeovil Town. The Blues took the lead with thirteen minutes on the clock, when Aoife Mannion slotted home from the spot after Rachel Hignett had been penalised for handball. Meaghan Sargeant made it two on the stroke of half time when she headed in from a Kerys Harrop corner. Ellen White increased Birmingham's lead early in the second half but a string of saves from Megan Walsh prevented things from getting worse for Yeovil who still seek their first goal and points.
