League leaders Arsenal were given a first half scare on Sunday but bounced back to beat Brighton & Hove Albion 4-1 and increase their winning start to nine matches.
Ini Umotong powered through to scored and stun the home side early on and the Seagulls were unlucky not to add a second when Kayleigh Green hit the bar. Moments later, a defensive error at the other end allowed Vivianne Miedema to score a well taken equaliser, then Dominique Bloodworth put Arsenal ahead for the first time and Danielle van de Donk headed in the third shortly before half time. Beth Mead rounded off the scoring for Arsenal when she curled home the fourth goal, ten minutes from time.
Manchester City made sure of staying six points behind in second place, ahead of their meeting with Arsenal this week, by winning 4-0 away to Yeovil Town. Nikita Parris gave them a first half lead when she finished off from a Keira Walsh cross and Caroline Weir drilled in a second ahead of the break. Yeovil tried hard to get back into the game in the second half with Ann Marie Heatherson heading against the bar whilst Jill Scott also hit the woodwork at the other end. City made the points safe when Steph Houghton fired in a free kick with seven minutes remaining and Claire Emslie netted the final goal late on.
Birmingham City are back in the top three following their 2-0 success away to Liverpool. Both goals came during the first half, Emma Follis kept up her fine form by scoring for the third successive match, with three minutes on the clock and Connie Scofield fired home the second from the edge of the area.
Reading FC Women came from a goal behind to win 2-1 against Everton and lift themselves up to fourth. Everton got off to a good start when Hannah Cain gave them a 12th minute lead but their lead did not last too long, Brooke Chaplen equalising from Remi Allen's through ball. Inessa Kaagman had a goal ruled out for Everton early in the second half but with fifteen minutes remaining, Chaplen netted her second to hand the Royals their fifth win of the season.
West Ham Utd moved to within one point of Bristol City after winning their meeting 2-0. In a match of few chances, Alisha Lehmann gave the Hammers the lead during the first half with a low strike and in the dying minutes, a bad back pass allowed Jane Ross to sew up the points with the second goal.
