There is no change at the top of the table after the top five all recorded victories in Sunday's matches.
These continue to be led by Chelsea after they scored six times without reply away to Birmingham City. Ji So-Yun opened the scoring with two minutes on the clock and Millie Bright added a second ahead of half time. Beth England made it three within a minute of the restart and Drew Spence netted a quickfire double, before England completed the tally with her second goal, just after the hour.
For the second week running, Manchester City had momentarily occupied top spot following their 5-0 victory away to Bristol City. The visitors led at the interval through a Tessa Wullaert goal and they took a firm grip on the game when Ellen White doubled their advantage midway through the second half. Man City went on to seal the win with three goals in the last five minutes, substitute Pauline Bremer netting either side of a strike from Caroline Weir.
Arsenal stay in third place, just a single point off the pace, after they defeated Liverpool 1-0. Vivianne Miedema settled matters in the Gunners' favour when she scored the only goal of the game, shortly before the half hour.
Everton's season continues to go from strength to strength and they consolidated themselves in fourth place by beating Tottenham Hotspur 3-1. Molly Pike opened the scoring after seven minutes and after Lucy Quinn had levelled the scores for Spurs, an own goal put Everton back in front going into half time. Lucy Graham wrapped up a fifth win in seven matches for Willie Kirk's side when she scored the third goal, eleven minutes into the second half.
Manchester Utd made a quick return to winning ways with a 4-0 victory against Brighton & Hove Albion. Lauren James fired United into a tenth minute lead, which was doubled ahead of the break by Leah Galton. Midway through the second half, Galton netted her second and Katie Zelem completed the scoring late on from the penalty spot.
Seven days after conceding a two-goal lead against Bristol City, the boot was on the other foot this time as Reading FC Women came from two behind to beat West Ham Utd 3-2 despite being down to ten players. Katharina Baunach gave the Hammers an early lead and Leanne Kiernan netted a second after the interval but Reading, who had already lost Rachel Rowe to a red card, staged an astonishing fightback and three goals in a seven minute spell, from Kristine Leine, Brooke Chaplen and Jade Moore, gave Kelly Chambers' side an unlikely victory.
