Arsenal stormed to the top of the Barclays FA WSL with a league record 11-1 victory over Bristol City.
With Chelsea's match at Everton being postponed because of a frozen pitch, the Gunners had the chance to move above them and took full advantage with a powerful display, spearheaded by an astonishing performance from Vivianne Miedema. The Dutch star scored six times - also a league record - to propel herself to the top of the scoring charts and provided a further four assists, including two for Lisa Evans. Leah Williamson, Jordan Nobbs and Emma Mitchell added the other goals for Arsenal, before the Vixens scored a late consolation goal through Yana Daniels.
Manchester City had been in prime position to go top but remain in second on goal difference following their 1-0 win against Liverpool. Gemma Bonner scored the only goal of the game against her former club, midway through the first half, as City kept themselves firmly in contention. For the Reds, though, it was a seventh defeat in eight matches although they have only conceded ten goals so far this season.
West Ham Utd this time were on the right end of a fightback in their 3-2 victory against Manchester Utd. In a blistering start to the game, Kirsty Hanson's early goal for the Red Devils was cancelled out by Laura Vetterlein with only three minutes on the clock, but Lauren James looked to have set Casey Stoney's side on the way to victory when she restored their lead with ten minutes remaining. However, this time it was the Hammers who staged a comeback and two goals from Katharina Baunach turned matters around to hand them their third win of the season.
Brighton & Hove Albion met Reading FC Women met each other on Friday night and the Seagulls picked up a valuable point from a 2-2 draw, although they were very close to doing even better. Reading took a first half lead when Fara Williams scored direct from a corner but Hope Powell's improving side hit back to lead at the break thanks to Aileen Whelan and Ini Umotong. Brighton needed to withstand Reading pressure in the second half but looked to have pulled through until the last minute of injury time, when Remi Allen drilled home the equaliser following a goalmouth scramble.
Birmingham City and Tottenham Hotspur met each other on Wednesday night and battled out a 1-1 draw. The Blues took the lead midway through the first half when Abbi Grant headed in from Lucy Staniforth's chipped pass but they had to settle for a share of the spoils as Kit Graham grabbed a second half equaliser for Spurs with a header from a free kick.
