Chelsea hold on to the leadership of the Barclays FA WSL on goal difference following their 4-0 victory against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
Melanie Leupolz broke the deadlock just before the half hour with a firm strike from 25 yards and before Spurs could recover from setback, they found themselves two behind a minute later when Pernille Harder scored from close range. Harder turned provider for the third as her far post cross was headed in by Sam Kerr and Chelsea completed the scoring after the hour mark, Leupolz slotting home from the penalty spot following a handball in the area.
Manchester Utd meanwhile won 2-0 away to Everton, to keep themselves level on points with Chelsea. The damage was inflicted in the first half, in-form striker Ella Toone giving United the lead in the ninth minute when she finished off from a Leah Galton cross and Christen Press added the second just before half time, tucking her shot past Sandy MacIver after being put through by Hayley Ladd.
Manchester City kept themselves in the race by running out 4-0 winners over West Ham Utd. Caroline Weir put City in front with a far post finish from a Chloe Kelly cross and Georgia Stanway fired in the second ahead of half time. After the break, Ellen White headed in the third from an Alex Greenwood corner and Rose Lavelle took advantage a defensive slip to make it four. There was more good news for City late on when Aoife Mannion came on as a substitute, making her comeback from a long term knee injury.
At the other end of the table, Bristol City notched up their first league victory of the season when beating Brighton & Hove Albion 3-0. The Robins got off to a flying start, taking the lead after three minutes with a spectacular 25-yard strike from Yana Daniels which crashed in off the underside of the bar and Ebony Salmon added the second, racing onto Aimee Palmer's long pass to score. Salmon completed the scoring on the hour from the penalty spot after Victoria Williams was adjudged to have handballed.
