The top two met each other on Sunday in a game which fully lived up its billing, with Manchester City and Chelsea battling out a 3-3 draw.
Ellen White put City in front midway through the first half, with Ji So-Yun bringing the sides level ahead of half time. Georgia Stanway then restored City's lead on the hour - with the 2,000th goal scored in the FA WSL's history - but Chelsea hit back strongly to go ahead themselves, thanks to two goals in six minutes from Magdalena Eriksson and Beth England. Parity returned two minutes later with an equaliser from Lauren Hemp and this time the teams could not be separated, meaning that City stay one point ahead at the top, having played one more game than Chelsea.
Fourth place was on offer for the winners as Everton hosted Manchester Utd at their new Walton Hall Park home. It was United who started well and went two goals ahead inside the opening half hour, both scored by Leah Galton. Ella Toone added the third just after the hour mark and although Everton fought back with goals from Danielle Turner and Lucy Graham, United held on to secure their seventh league victory of the season.
Tottenham Hotspur are back in the top half of the table following their 1-0 win away to Brighton & Hove Albion. A close game was settled midway through the second half when Rianna Dean scored the only goal from the penalty spot, atfer Angela Addison had been fouled in the area.
West Ham Utd meanwhile returned to winning ways with a 4-2 success against Liverpool. A double strike within a minute of each other from Adriana Leon and Martha Thomas put the Hammers two ahead at half time. Thomas netted her second seven minutes into the second half and Leon completed her own double on the hour. The Reds hit back with a brace of their own from Rachel Furness but this could not prevent them from going to the foot of the table, whilst West Ham moved themselves back towards mid-table.
Bristol City have gone the other way, climbing out of the bottom two after they won 1-0 away to Birmingham City. A game of few chances was settled with fourteen minutes remaining when Ebony Salmon broke through to score the only goal.
