Arsenal continue to head the way in the early stages of the season in the Barclays FA WSL after making it four victories on the trot when scoring five times without reply past Brighton & Hove Albion.
Vivianne Miedema opened the scoring for the Gunners in the tenth minute, a lead which was doubled ahead of half time by Danielle van de Donk. Jennifer Beattie made it three just after the restart and Arsenal added two further goals late on, Lotte Wubben-Moy putting them further in front before Miedema added her second in injury time - putting her level with all-time WSL leading scorer Nikita Parris on 49 goals, in a remarkable 49 appearances.
Everton are showing no signs of slowing down in second place and they kept up their own 100% record when beating West Ham Utd 3-1. Nicoline Sorensen gave the Toffees an early lead but the Hammers recovered well to level the scores midway through the first half when Kenza Dali drove home from the edge of the area. West Ham started the second half well but it was Everton who went back in front again through a superb 25-yard strike from Lucy Graham and the Scottish international sewed up the win with her second goal in injury time.
Chelsea stay two points off the pace in third but after a significant victory, 3-1 against Manchester City. Both teams had opportunities during the first half but it was Chelsea who took the lead seven minutes before half time, Maren Mjelde scoring from the penalty spot following a handball decision in the area. Sam Kerr doubled the advantage early in the second half, before City gave themselves a lifeline through a penalty of their own, converted by Chloe Kelly. Nine minutes later, Fran Kirby latched on to Erin Cuthbert's through ball to make the game safe for her side with their third goal.
Manchester Utd had spent a day on top of the league following their 1-0 win away to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. United had the better of the chances on the day but came up against Spurs goalkeeper Becky Spencer in fine form, pulling off a string of good saves. The decisive moment came midway through the second half when Millie Turner rose highest to score the only goal of the game with a towering header from a corner.
After defeats in their opening three matches, Birmingham City broke their duck with a 1-0 success away to Reading FC Women. The Blues were under pressure for most of the game as the home side went close on a number of occasions but with eighteen minutes left, Sarah Mayling broke down the right and her low cross picked out Claudia Walker who finished from ten yards for the only goal of the game.
