Chelsea stay three points ahead at the top of WSL 1 following their 1-0 win away to Everton.
Magdalena Eriksson headed in the only goal of the game on 12 minutes although they survived a scare in the dying minutes when Angharad James hit the bar.
Manchester City put their FA Cup disappointment behind them to run out 3-0 winners over Sunderland and stay hard on the heels of Chelsea. Georgia Stanway fired them in front inside the opening quarter hour but City were not able to make the game safe unti late on, when Stanway netted her second and Nadia Nadim added the third in injury time.
Arsenal meanwhile kept themselves in touch with the top two with a 3-1 victory over Reading FC Women. Kim Little curled home a shot from the edge of the area and Dominique Janssen headed in the second, before Fara Williams pulled Reading back into the game with a well struck volley, early in the second half. Danielle van de Donk made the points safe for the Gunners with the third goal and they move back into the top three.
Liverpool made it three wins in four matches with a 2-0 success away to Bristol City. The first half was evenly contested but goalless, and moments after Siobhan Chamberlain had saved brilliantly from Lauren Hemp's 20-yard strike, at the other end, a Liverpool corner was half cleared as far as Beth England who found the top corner of the net with a powerful strike. The Reds made the game safe four minutes from time when Alex Greenwood scored from the penalty spot after England had been fouled in the area.
It was a case of ‘lucky thirteen' for Yeovil Town as they picked up their first point of the season when drawing 0-0 with Birmingham City. Megan Walsh was the heroine for Yeovil as she made a string of great saves, including a late double stop from Ellen White to help her side put an end to their 12-match losing streak.
