The gap between the top three in the Barclays FA WSL and the rest further increased over the weekend after all three recorded another victory.
Manchester City were the first in action on Saturday night when they played host to Everton. The Toffees were looking to return to the top four but it was Pauline Bremer who gave City a first half lead, with the German striker adding a second within eight minutes of the restart. Gemma Bonner made it three just after the hour, before Everton snatched a late consolation via a Georgia Stanway own goal. The 3-1 win did not quite take City back to the top but gave them the same goals record as Arsenal.
Arsenal themselves then preserved their three point lead by winning 4-0 away to Brighton & Hove Albion. Danielle van de Donk opened the scoring with three minutes on the clock and Jill Roord made it two just after the half hour mark. Jordan Nobbs further increased the Gunners' lead early in the second half and Beth Mead, on her return from injury, rounded off the scoring late on.
Chelsea then recorded a 6-1 victory over Bristol City to keep themselves well in the hunt. The Blues were given an early scare when Ebony Salmon put the Vixens in front after fifteen minutes but goals from Beth England and Hannah Blundell turned matters around in Chelsea's favour, before Jess Carter and Ji So-Yun added further goals on the stroke of half time. Ji completed her double early in the second half, with England also netting her second with eight minutes remaining.
Reading FC Women lifted themselves up into fourth place on the back of a 1-0 win against Birmingham City. Amalie Eikeland settled matters in the Royals' favour when she scored the only goal of the game, six minutes before half time.
A dramatic end to the London derby match between Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham Utd saw Spurs take the points with a 2-1 victory and climb back into the top half of the table. Emma Mitchell scored her first goal since her loan move from Arsenal, giving Tottenham the lead on the half hour with a strike from the edge of the area, and this looked like settling the match until Kenza Dali grabbed a late equaliser for the Hammers. However, this was not the end of the scoring and Spurs bounced back to grab a winning goal in the sixth minute of injury time, through a header from Rianna Dean.
