Arsenal hit seven whilst Vixens hold Chelsea
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 22 Sep 2018
FA WSL news - Arsenal hit seven whilst Vixens hold Chelsea - 22 Sep 2018 - Women's Football NewsArsenal who kept up their explosive form in front of goal with a 7-0 victory over Yeovil Town, which sees the continue to occupy top spot in the early FA WSL table.
Jordan Nobbs got the ball rolling as she gave Arsenal the lead with five minutes on the clock and Beth Mead doubled their advantage going into half time. Katie McCabe and Vivianne Miedema then scored in quick succession and after Nobbs had netted her second, Dominique Bloodworth and Kim Little rounded off the scoring with strikes in the last ten minutes.
Birmingham City are the other team to have won both of their opening two matches and they join Arsenal on six points after winning 1-0 against Brighton & Hove Albion. In a game of few chances, the decisive moment came on the stroke of half time when Emma Follis made a driving run into the penalty area where she was brought down by Laura Rafferty for a penalty. Aoife Mannion stepped up to score from the spot and Birmingham saw the second half out for a second successive victory and clean sheet.
Reigning Champions Chelsea meanwhile were involved in another goalless draw, this time against Bristol City. Chelsea did most of the attacking in the match but found City goalkeeper Sophie Baggaley in excellent form and her defence, superbly marshalled by Frankie Brown in the centre, produced a great rearguard effort to keep Chelsea's normally free scoring attack at bay. Chelsea came closest when Ramona Bachmann's shot was touched onto the bar by Baggaley but the Vixens' resistance was not to be broken and they held out for a hard earned point.
Manchester City are the team in third place, on alphabetical order, following their 4-0 victory over Everton on Thursday night. Nick Cushing's side took the lead just after the quarter hour through a superb strike from Georgia Stanway and they remained in front at the break, although Everton went close to scoring on more than one occasion. After the break, City turned up the heat and former Toffees striker Nikita Parris haunted her old club by scoring twice, before Claire Emslie added the fourth goal late on.
There were no goals in the other game as West Ham Utd's first WSL appearance saw them share the spoils with Reading FC Women. Alisha Lehmann hit the post early on for the Hammers whilst at the other end, Becky Spencer made a number of good saves. Rebecca Jane almost snatched it for Reading late on when her looping header struck the bar but both teams had to settle for a point apiece, which means that Reading have an identical record to that of Manchester City's.
