Arsenal sealed their first FA WSL title for seven years with a 4-0 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion at the Amex Stadium.
In front of an attendance in excess of 5,000, the Gunners went into the match needing a win to be confirmed as Champions and were ahead after seven minutes when Vivianne Miedema powered in an unstoppable shot from outside the area. Lisa Evans struck the woodwork moments later but the second was not too long in coming, Katie McCabe rounding off a good move with a neat finish. With fifteen minutes remaining, Beth Mead produced a superb strike of her own, finding the top corner from 25 yards, and Danielle van de Donk finished off a great day for her club by slotting home the fourth.
Manchester City kicked off their game against Yeovil Town knowing that their last remaining title hopes had gone, and found themselves a goal behind after just 20 seconds when Olivia Fergusson scored from eight yards. City pressed hard for an equaliser and Yeovil held out until the half hour, when Lauren Hemp was fouled in the area and Nikita Parris slotted home from the spot. Parris turned provider for the winning goal midway through the second half, crossing for Hemp to head home.
With Chelsea on UEFA Women's Champions League duty, Birmingham City replaced them in third place with a 2-0 victory over Liverpool. The Blues started the game strongly with Meaghan Sargeant going close, before Ellen White put them ahead, following up to score after Charlie Wellings' shot had come back off the post. White went on to score a second ten minutes later, via a neat header from a Chloe Arthur cross.
Everton won for only the third time this season, beating Reading FC Women by the odd goal in five. Remi Allen gave Reading an eighth minute lead, but Everton responded well and were back on level terms through Inessa Kaagman just before half time. Chantelle Boye-Hlorkah put Everton ahead for the first time after the break and Simone Magill extended their lead from close range. Fara Williams gave Reading late hope as she pulled a goal back but Everton held on to keep alive their chances of climbing out of the bottom two.
West Ham Utd can still finish in the top six after coming from behind to beat Bristol City 2-1. After a goalless first half, Heather Payne put City ahead with her first senior goal, just after coming on as a substitute, but Leanne Kiernan got the Hammers back on level terms and Jane Ross headed in a late clincher from a Brianna Visalli cross.
