Leaders pick up pace again
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 23 Feb 2019
 
After a break from league action over the weekend for the Fifth Round of the SSE Women's FA Cup, the clubs got back to business in midweek and the battle for the title intensified once again.
 
Manchester City received an early scare in their match against Everton but bounced back to win 3-1 and preserve their lead of two points at the top. Chantelle Boye-Hlorkah latched onto a poor clearance to give Everton an eleventh minute lead and Willie Kirk's side remained in front going into half time. However within a minute of the restart, City were back on level terms thanks to Keira Walsh and Janine Beckie headed them in front for the first time from a corner. In a dramatic finish to the game, Ellie Roebuck denied Simone Magill an equaliser with a brilliant save and City made the game safe moments later when Nikita Parris scored the third against her former club.
 
Arsenal remain in control of matters in second place, thanks to a 3-0 victory over Yeovil Town. The Gunners were frustrated by a determined Yeovil defence during a goalless first half but broke through on the hour mark, Kim Little driving in the opener. Beth Mead curled home a spectacular second from the edge of the area and Little wrapped up the win her second goal, from the penalty spot.
 
Chelsea continued their form from the FA Cup on the weekend by beating Bristol City 6-0 to keep their hopes of a European place alive. The visitors went into the game on the back of a five-match unbeaten run in the league but found themselves two down inside the opening six minutes, Fran Kirby and Beth England both scoring. Kirby netted her second ahead of half time and England did likewise after the break, making it four on the hour. Following a foul in the area on Adelina Engman, Kirby netted her hat-trick from the penalty spot and a perfect night for the Blues was rounded off when England also completed her treble through a late header.
 
West Ham Utd are back in the top six following their 2-1 win away to Reading FC Women. In front of 2,148 at the Madejski Stadium, Alisha Lehmann's cool finish gave the Hammers a first half lead and eight minutes after half time, the Swiss striker netted her second in similar fashion. Fara Williams pulled a goal back from the penalty spot but West Ham took the points to move above the Royals in the third and secure their third successive win in all competitions.
 
The result of the night though went to Brighton & Hove Albion, who defeated fourth placed Birmingham City 2-1. Ellen White put Birmingham in front midway through the first half but the Seagulls were back on terms two minutes later, thanks to a Kayleigh Green header. With eighteen minutes remaining, Ellie Brazil scored against her former club to give Brighton a win which increases the distance between themselves and the bottom two places.
