After the first two rounds of matches saw goals at a premium, the Barclays FA WSL burst into life over the weekend with a total of 13 in the five matches played although, bizarrely, not one of them saw both teams find the net.
Arsenal strode into top spot on Sunday afternoon with a 4-0 victory over previously unbeaten Brighton & Hove Albion. Kim Little put the Gunners ahead with nine minutes on the clock and Vivianne Miedema added a second just before half time. Danielle van de Donk further increased their lead just before the hour and Jordan Nobbs volleyed in the final goal with twenty minutes remaining.
The two other teams with 100% records met each other and it was Manchester City who made it three wins out of three, thanks to a 1-0 success at Everton. The only goal of the game came in the seventh minutes through a Steph Houghton free kick from the edge of the area and although there were chances at both ends, City emerged unscathed and stay in second place, level on points with Arsenal.
The table already has a familiar look about it with Chelsea completing the top three following their 4-0 victory away to Bristol City. The majority of the damage was inflicted early on as Guro Reiten scored twice inside the opening eleven minutes and Ji So-Yun quickly added a third. After the break, Maria Thorisdottir was twice denied by good saves from Sophie Baggaley but she could not prevent Sophie Ingle from netting the final with just over ten minutes left.
Tottenham Hotspur have leapfrogged West Ham Utd in the table and share fifth place with Everton after winning their derby clash 2-0. In front of an attendance of 24,790 at the London Stadium, it was Spurs who spoilt the home side's party, first of all by taking the lead when Rianna Dean headed in a cross from Rosella Ayane. Both teams had opportunities in the second half but it was Lucy Quinn who sealed the points for her side with six minutes remaining when she scored the second goal.
On Saturday, Manchester Utd gained their first ever points in the top flight as they defeated Liverpool 2-0. Both sides went into the match looking for their first goals, as well as their first points, but with nineteen minutes remaining to go, Jess Sigsworth set up Lauren James to give United the lead. Katie Zelem wrapped up the win in injury time when she scored the second goal from the penalty spot.
