Whilst leaders Chelsea and Champions Manchester City were on UEFA Women's Champions League duty, Arsenal had the opportunity to step up their WSL 1 title challenge with two games in four days.
Two victories would have seen them move into second place but instead, they were left frustrated when being held to a goalless draw by Yeovil Town. Megan Walsh pulled off a string of saves to help her side claim a hard earned point and double their tally for the season, whilst Beth Mead was also denied when her first half shot was blocked on the line by Thierry-Jo Gauvin as Yeovil dug deep to record one of their best ever results.
The Gunners were to bounce back on Tuesday night though and three goals in the last 25 minutes saw them run out 3-0 winners over Liverpool. Despite a bright start from the visitors, Arsenal began to get on top but made the breakthrough via a powerful strike by Katie McCabe from the edge of the area, midway through the second half. Jordan Nobbs made it two from close range shortly afterwards and the midfielder was involved in the third, her corner being parried into her own net by Siobhan Chamberlain.
Reading FC Women are back in the top half of the WSL 1 table following their 3-0 victory over Everton. All of the goals came during the second half, Remi Allen keeping up her great scoring form by giving Reading the lead two minutes after the restart, slotting home the rebound after Kirsty Pearce's header came back off the bar. Lauren Bruton made it two after being put through by Jo Potter's pass and Pearce rounded off the scoring late on with an acrobatic volley.
Bristol City put an end to their run of seven straight defeats with a 2-1 success away to Sunderland on Saturday night. Millie Farrow gave them an early lead with a neat chip, her first goal since returning from a long term injury and after Yana Daniels was brought down in the area by Kylla Sjoman on the half hour, Lauren Hemp made it two with the rebound after her penalty had originally been saved by Rachael Laws. Lucy Staniforth reduced the arrears early in the second half but Sunderland could not find another way through and City closed the game out for three valuable points.
