Arsenal and Birmingham edge ahead
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 26 Sep 2018
 
Arsenal and Birmingham City each made it three wins out of three on Sunday and a small gap has opened up at the top of the FA WSL.
 
The Gunners still hold onto the leadership but they were made to work hard for their 4-3 victory over West Ham Utd. It was the Hammers who took the lead through a powerful header from Kate Longhurst, with Danielle van de Donk equalising shortly afterwards. Longhurst restored West Ham's lead but goals either side of half time from van de Donk completed her hat-trick and Kim Little added the fourth with a powerful strike from the edge of the area, before Claire Rafferty pulled one back with four minutes remaining. Remarkably, all of van de Donk's goals were virtual carbon copies of each other, scoring from point blank range after a corner had been flicked on to her.
 
Birmingham meanwhile continued their quieter, but equally effective, start to the season by recording their third straight 1-0 victory, with Reading FC Women this time the victims. Once again, it was an early goal which gave the Blues the points and once again, it was a defender on target. Meaghan Sargeant opened the scoring in the seventh minute and although both teams did go close to scoring in the remainder of the game, Birmingham closed out their third successive clean sheet to maintain their perfect start.
 
It has been a great week for Bristol City as they faced last season's top two and came through unscathed, with two highly credible draws, this time finishing level at 2-2 with Manchester City. However, it could have been even better for the Vixens on Sunday after Danique Kerkdijk fired them in front after fourteen minutes and a brilliantly executed 30-yard shot from Juliette Kemppi doubled their lead early in the second half. A shock result was looking on the cards until the final nine minutes, when Nikita Parris pulled one back from the penalty spot, and Steph Houghton completed the fightback via a well struck dipping shot from 20 yards to salvage a point for her side.
 
Chelsea have had a strange start to the new campaign and for the third match in a row, they fought out a goalless draw, this time with Everton. Both teams went close to scoring during the game, Everton feeling they had done so when Carly Telford failed to hold a shot from Inessa Kaagman and scooped the ball away from what they believed to be behind the line. Everton therefore get off the mark points wise but neither team has yet found the net in the league so far.
 
Liverpool did break their duck though with a 1-0 victory away to Brighton & Hove Albion. A game of few chances did bring a dramatic end as Reds substitute Rinsola Babajide scored the only goal with a low shot from 20 yards, five minutes from time.
