Arsenal regain leadership
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 29 Mar 2019
 
Arsenal travelled to Liverpool on Sunday in search of a victory which would take them back to the top of the table, with Manchester City not having a game.
 
The Gunners made a lively start to the game and took the lead with twenty minutes on the clock, Kim Little drilling in a low shot from a cross by Katie McCabe. Just a further two minutes had elapsed when it was two; Beth Mead finding the net at the far post from Vivianne Miedema's ball into the area.
 
Liverpool nearly pulled a goal back shortly afterwards but Courtney Sweetman-Kirk was denied by a point blank save from Pauline Peyraud-Magnin. Arsenal continued to control the game though, however they did not increase their lead until midway through the second half, via a cross-cum-shot by Mead. Once again, the Gunners struck for the second time in as many minutes, this time Dominique Bloodworth scoring with a diving header. Liverpool did manage to reduce the arrears, Sweetman-Kirk making no mistake from the penalty spot following a foul on Yana Daniels in the area, but Arsenal were to have the final say and Miedema got herself on the scoresheet five minutes from time, a composed finish seeing her become the first player to score 20 goals in a season in the top flight since the WSL's formation.
 
Bristol City played host to Everton, looking to get back on track following two heavy defeats in their previous outings. Tanya Oxtoby's side claimed a 1-0 victory from a close encounter to consolidate themselves in fifth place in the table.
 
Everton started the brighter of the two sides and won a series of corners. However on 33 minutes, the Vixens went in front when Lucy Graham picked the ball up and drove a fierce 25-yard shot which Kirstie Levell was unable to keep out. After the break, City pressed for a second with Ella Rutherford firing over when well placed in the area and Julie Biesmans drilled wide. Everton hit back and somehow did not equalise during a huge goalmouth scramble in which Sophie Baggaley made a double save and the woodwork was struck twice. Hannah Cain almost broke through late on but was foiled by a great saving tackle from Loren Dykes and at the other end, a Biesmans free kick brought out a fine save from Levell, but City held out for their seventh league win of the season.
