Manchester United head a trio of clubs at the top of the FA Women's Championship following their 3-0 victory over Sheffield Utd on Thursday night.
The Blades did make a bright start to the game but it was the home side who took the lead in the twelfth minute when Katie Zelem scored from the penalty spot. Kirsty Hanson fired in a powerful strike from outside the area to double the lead just before half time and Hanson turned provider for the third, setting up Lizzie Arnot to score midway through the second half.
Lewes had been in top spot - albeit on alphabetical order - after they followed up their winning start by beating Crystal Palace 2-1 at the Dripping Pan. Ciara Watling had given Palace the lead midway through the first half but two goals within five minutes of the start of the second half turned the match on its head. Both goals came from corners, Avilla Bergin and Shannon Moloney scoring from close range to hand the Rookettes their second straight win.
Tottenham Hotspur have made an impressive start to the new season in both league and cup so far and their 3-0 victory away to Leicester City leaves them with an identical record to that of Lewes. All of Spurs' goals came during the first half, Sarah Wiltshire giving them the lead in the fourteenth minute and Rianna Dean making it two shortly afterwards. Wiltshire then maintained her own good recent scoring form when she scored her second, six minutes before the interval, to crown a good night for her team.
Charlton Athletic's first ever match in the league ended on a winning note as they defeated Aston Villa 2-0. Gemma Bryan opened the scoring with twelve minutes on the clock, converting after good work out wide by Kit Graham and the two combined again for the second goal, this time Graham seized on a backpass before setting up Bryan to score her second on the night.
London Bees got themselves off the mark with a 2-1 victory over Millwall Lionesses. The Bees made a flying start to the game, taking the league in the opening minute when Emma Beckett scored from a corner. Millwall fought back and got on level terms four minutes before the break through a finish from Lia Cataldo. The game looked to be heading towards a draw in the second half until an inspired moment, three minutes from time, saw Lauren Pickett cut in from the right before crashing an unstoppable shot from 20 yards for the winning goal.
