Chelsea produced one of the results of the season so far in the Barclays FA WSL when they won 4-1 away to Arsenal.
In a stunning opening twenty minutes, Chelsea inflicted the majority of the damage with a three-goal blast against the reigning Champions. Beth England opened the scoring with ten minutes on the clock and Sam Kerr bagged her first goal for the club, with Sophie Ingle making it three shortly afterwards. Guro Reiten rounded off a great day when she further increased their lead midway through the second half, before Beth Mead grabbed what proved to be a consolation for the Gunners.
The result means that Manchester City are back on top of the table after their 2-0 success at Birmingham City. It took a minute for Ellen White to haunt her former club on her return to their home ground, the England striker giving the Cityzens the lead and Keira Walsh made the game safe with the second goal, twenty five minutes from time.
Manchester Utd are back in the top four after a week away, following their 3-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur. After a goalless first half, United broke the deadlock just before the hour mark when Katie Zelem scored from the penalty spot. Jess Sigsworth made it two, seven minutes later, and Zelem wrapped up the win for her side with her second goal late on.
Everton also returned to the top half of the table after they defeated Reading FC Women 3-1. Chloe Kelly gave Everton an eleventh minute lead which was cancelled out by a Fara Williams penalty, but the day belonged to Kelly and she netted twice more in a six minute spell during the second to complete a hat-trick.
West Ham Utd meanwhile staged a late rally to beat Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 and put a gap of four points between the two teams. Danique Kerkdijk scored her first goal for the Seagulls, midway through the first half, and it looked as though it would send Brighton on their way to a second successive win until the last ten minutes, when Alisha Lehmann scored twice in quick succession to turn the match around in the Hammers' favour.
The two teams at the foot of the table faced each other and the honours went to Liverpool who claimed their first victory of the season, 1-0 at Bristol City. Rachel Furness scored the only goal of the game in the fourteenth minute but Reds goalkeeper Anke Preuss saved a second half penalty from Charlie Wellings to help secure three precious points for her team.
