Maren keeps Chelsea top
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 23 Nov 2019
 
The top three stepped up the pace in the Barclays FA WSL on its return to action following the international break, still headed by Chelsea following their 1-0 victory over Manchester Utd.
 
Both teams went into the game on the back of winning runs and a tight game of few chances was settled midway through the second half, when Millie Turner was adjudged to have brought down Fran Kirby in the area and Maren Mjelde drilled home the only goal of the match from the spot.
 
Chelsea remain the division's only unbeaten run and the win returned them to the summit after Manchester City had briefly claimed top spot by beating West Ham Utd 5-0. City shook off their recent bad run of results with a strong first half display, Ellen White giving them an early lead which was increased as Georgia Stanway netted a quickfire double and Lauren Hemp made it four before half time. The Hammers rallied after the break despite conceding another goal to Tessa Wullaert, but a good day for City ended on a bad note as Stanway was shown a second yellow card with eighteen minutes remaining.
 
Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal met for the first time in the top flight and the occasion was marked by a league record attendance of 38,262. Spurs had the better of the first half but after the break, Arsenal's greater class and experience began to tell and they took the lead when Kim Little fired in from the edge of the area. Vivianne Miedema sewed up the points when she latched onto a bad back pass to score and although they drop to third on goal difference, the Gunners remain just one point off the pace.
 
Everton continue to have a good season and are back in fourth after their 1-0 win away to Liverpool at Anfield. The match also attracted a healthy afttendance but this could not turn around Liverpool's form as they were narrowly beaten again, going down to a 25-yard shot from Lucy Graham which was fumbled into the net by Anke Preuss on the stroke of half time.
 
The game of the day was at the Madejski Stadium where a second half fightback saw Reading FC Women pegged back to a 3-3 draw by Bristol City. Remi Allen and Brooke Chaplen netted twice in a minute to put Reading two ahead during the first half, with Charlie Wellings reducing the arrears before the break. Angharad James headed in Reading's third after the interval and Yana Daniels responded quickly, before Ebony Salmon salvaged a valuable point for the Vixens with seven minutes remaining.
 
Brighton & Hove Albion celebrated their first league victory of the season, a 3-0 success against Birmingham City. The Seagulls took a fifteenth minute lead via a Kayleigh Green penalty after Ellie Brazil had been fouled and Lea Le Garrec made it two with a 25-yard strike. Green rounded off the win with her second goal, heading in from a Le Garrec corner.
