Toone hits right notes for new leaders
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 11 Nov 2020
 
Manchester Utd are top of the Barclays FA WSL for the first time after beating previous leaders Arsenal 1-0.
 
United had the better of the chances throughout the match with the normally free scoring Gunners finding it hard to break down their defence. Jackie Groenen and Tobin Heath both went close for United but with seven minutes left, the breakthrough came as Jess Sigsworth powered down the right and squared the ball across the edge of the area for Ella Toone, who stroked a shot in off the post for the only goal of the game.
 
Chelsea move up into the top three on the back of a 4-0 victory over Everton, who also suffered their first league defeat. The Blues took a fifteenth minute lead through Ji So-Yun but it was in the last twenty minutes, shortly after Maren Mjelde had cleared a Hayley Raso shot off the line, that they wrapped up the points. Beth England scored twice in a three minute spell, before Pernille Harder added the fourth with the last kick of the game.
 
Manchester City kept themselves in touch with the top four as they ran out 8-1 winners over a depleted Bristol City side. The match was tinged with controversy as it was told to go ahead despite the visitors missing five players through self isolating, forcing them to include a number of academy players in their squad. After an own goal from Sophie Baggaley gave the home side the lead and Ebony Salmon equalised, goals from Laura Coombs, Keira Walsh and Lucy Bronze put City in a strong position at half time and after the break, Ellen White netted a double with Georgia Stanway and Janine Beckie also getting on the scoresheet.
 
A 1-1 draw away to Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday keeps Reading FC Women in the top half of the table. Both goals came during the first half, Reading taking the lead when Emma Mitchell crossed for Brooke Chaplen to plant a header in the net from eight yards and Spurs levelling just before the half hour from a corner which was not cleared and Ashleigh Neville looped in a header.
 
West Ham Utd notched up their first win, 2-1 away to Birmingham City to bring a halt to the home side's mini revival. Birmingham went in front after nine minutes through a neat finish from Claudia Walker and Sarah Mayling almost made it two with an effort which came back off the post. Just before half time, Walker was to cancel out her goal at the other end when she diverted an Adriana Leon free kick into her own net. Walker almost made amends after the break when she hit the woodwork but the Hammers grew stronger as the game wore on and they were rewarded seventeen minutes from time, when Rachel Daly's cross from deep picked out the onrunning Emily van Egmond who guided her header into the corner of the net.
 
Aston Villa also celebrated their first victory, winning 2-0 at Brighton & Hove Albion. After a goalless first half, Villa took the lead when Anita Asante found the top corner. Lisa Weiss made a good save from Emily Simpkins to keep her side in front and Villa made the game safe in injury time as Ramona Petzelberger burst through to lob home the second goal.
