With Tottenham Hotspur not having a game, Manchester Utd replaced them at the top of the table with an 8-0 victory over Millwall Lionesses.

Charlton Athletic are back in third after winning their local derby 2-1 against Crystal Palace. Elizabeta Ejupi put the Addicks ahead with twelve minutes on the clock, with Jordan Butler equalising on the stroke of half time.

United went back in front with a well taken effort from Sophie Barker, moments after Ellie Gilliatt had struck the post, but Lewes once again battled back and Rebecca Carter scored a second equaliser with fifteen minutes remaining. United were not to be denied on the day though and Sophie Jones scored with a looping headers from a Jade Pennock free kick to seal a third victory in four matches for her side.

Villa were close to going back in front after the break when Amy West hit the post and ten minutes later, the Bees went in front for the first time through a towering header from Rachel Unitt. Destiney Toussaint netted the third late on to round off a second win in a row.
