Arsenal head the Barclays FA WSL table by two points following their 3-0 victory away to Reading FC Women on Sunday.
Vivianne Miedema opened the scoring for the Gunners just before the half hour and Kim Little made it two ahead of half time. Miedema rounded off the scoring with her second on the day in injury time, to take her tally to 12 for the season.
The Gunners' two fellow title challengers meanwhile met each other and it was Chelsea who were to record a dramatic 2-1 win against Manchester City. The first half was goalless but Caroline Weir opened the scoring for City just ahead of the hour mark. However, the game was turned on its head late on when Chelsea scored twice in a three minute spell through Beth England and Maren Mjelde, to preserve their unbeaten record and move themselves back into second, two points behind Arsenal and with a game in hand.
Manchester Utd leapfrogged Everton into fourth place after winning their meeting 3-1. Everton gave themselves a great start when Simone Magill handed them a second minute lead but United's response was swift, Lauren James equalising two minutes later and Katie Zelem putting them ahead from the penalty spot shortly afterwards. James then netted her second in the opening minute of the second half to crown her team's fifth victory of the campaign.
Tottenham Hotspur are back in the top half of the table after they defeated Brighton & Hove Albion 1-0. The only goal of the game came on the 57 minute mark when Ashleigh Neville scored at the second attempt after her initial shot had been saved by Megan Walsh.
Birmingham City completed a good week for themselves as they built on a point earned in midweek by beating Bristol City 2-0, adding to the home side's worrying run. Lucy Whipp gave Birmingham the lead after five minutes and Abbi Grant made the points safe with the second goal, midway through the second half.
Liverpool staged a second half fightback to earn themselves a precious point from a 1-1 draw against West Ham Utd. The Hammers went in front in the fifth minute thanks to Adriana Leon but after the break, Liverpool passed up a great chance to equalise when Mel Lawley shot wide from the penalty spot. Ten minutes later though, Lawley made amends by turning provider for the leveller when her cross was bundled in by Niamh Charles.
