The second round of matches in the Barclays FA WSL produced six more tight results and not too many goals, and three clubs remain on maximum points.
Everton are the team which sits on top, on alphabetical order, after they won 2-0 against Bristol City. Both goals came just before half time, Chloe Kelly cutting in from the left to drill in the opener from 20 yards and barely a minute later, the ball was laid back for Kelly to fire in an unstoppable 30-yard strike for her second on the day, to keep up her side's perfect start to the season.
Manchester City also have two wins from two, thanks to a 2-0 success at Reading FC Women. Pauline Bremer curled home a shot to put City in front on the half hour and the German striker, fresh from scoring twice against Lugano in the Champions League in midweek, kept up her good form as completed her double, following up to score after Grace Moloney had saved her initial shot.
Arsenal are the third team on six points following their 1-0 victory at Manchester Utd on Monday night. In United's first ever home match in the top flight, they came under increasing pressure as the match wore on but with Mary Earps in superb form in goal, began to look as though they would pick up their first point against the Champions. However in the dying minutes, shortly after Vivianne Miedema had hit the post, Danielle van de Donk kept a cool head during a scramble in the area to find the net from eight yards to finally end United's - and Earps' resistance.
Brighton & Hove Albion were seconds away from recording the result of the weekend but have the consolation of remaining unbeaten following their 1-1 draw with Chelsea. Both teams had chances during the course of the game but the Seagulls looked to have taken the points when Aileen Whelan fired them in front with six minutes remaining. However, what had been a frustrating afternoon for Chelsea did end with them salvaging a point in injury time when a goalmouth scramble led to Adelina Engman who smashed it home from close range.
It was a red letter day for Tottenham Hotspur as they recorded their first ever top flight victory, 1-0 against Liverpool. The only goal of the game came on the stroke of half time, Rachel Furness scoring from the penalty spot after she had been fouled in the area.
West Ham Utd also celebrated their first win of the season, beating Birmingham City 1-0. The Hammers picked up the points through a 28th minute from Adriana Leon, following good work by Martha Thomas. Birmingham almost snatched a point late on when Lucy Staniforth's long range strike was palmed onto the post by Courtney Brosnan.
