It has been another good week for Arsenal as they further strengthened their position at the top of the FA WSL.
On Sunday they travelled to Bristol City and put on an impressive display when running out 4-0 winners. Jordan Nobbs gave them the lead early on and Vivianne Miedema added a second just ahead of half time, taking her goal tally into double figures. City keeper Sophie Baggaley made a string of good saves to keep her side in the game but late goals from Miedema and Danielle van de Donk put the gloss on another Arsenal victory.
Manchester City had been unable to take an opportunity to go top on Friday night when they were held to a 1-1 draw by Reading FC Women. Georgia Stanway thumped home another terrific goal to put City ahead during the first half but they were were not able to increase their lead and Reading hit back after the break for a share of the spoils when Jade Moore, on her return from injury, headed in the equaliser.
Chelsea picked up a much needed 1-0 victory against Liverpool which takes them into fourth place. Magdalena Eriksson scored with an overhead kick for the only goal of the game, which brought an end to Liverpool's run of three successive victories.
West Ham Utd picked up their second league win of the season as they came from behind to beat Everton 2-1. Everton started the game well and took the lead with five minutes on the clock, Claudia Walker finishing off a good move from close range. The Hammers hit back and got back on level terms through Jane Ross, before Alisha Lehmann drilled in the second on the stroke of half time. After the break, Kirstie Levell saved a penalty from Ross and West Ham also struck the woodwork twice, but they saw the game out for a result which takes them up amongst the mid-table teams.
The two teams at the foot of the table met each other in a very important clash and it was Brighton & Hove Albion who were 2-1 winners over Yeovil Town. Jodie Brett opened the scoring for the Seagulls and Victoria Williams netted the second following a corner. Midway through the second half, Ellie Mason pulled one back after her initial penalty had been saved, but for Yeovil it is a fourth successive odd goal defeat whilst Brighton celebrated their first league win of the season.
