On a weekend of surprises in the Barclays FA WSL, Brighton & Hove Albion took the honours with a stunning 2-1 win away to league leaders Chelsea.
Sam Kerr headed in Chelsea in front from an Erin Cuthbert cross with five minutes on the clock but Brighton hit back straight away with an Aileen Whelan header following a corner. With twelve minutes remaining, Megan Connolly scored direct from a corner to give Brighton three precious points and bring an end to Chelsea's 33-match unbeaten run in the league.
Chelsea remain on top of the table as second placed Manchester Utd were also beaten, going down 2-0 at home to Reading FC Women. The first half was goalless but two goals in a three minute spell after the hour mark saw Reading to victory. Natasha Harding put them in front in the 63rd minute and Danielle Carter struck almost straight away with the second goal.
The big winners on the day were Manchester City who won 2-1 away to Arsenal to close the gap on the top two to two points. Ellen White gave City the lead midway through the first half and after Caitlin Foord brought the scores level just before the hour, Lauren Hemp headed in the winning goal for Gareth Taylor's side with eleven minutes remaining.
Everton remain in fifth place after they battled out a 1-1 draw with Birmingham City. Both goals came during the first half, Danielle Turner putting Everton in front at the midway point and Jamie Lee Napier equalising for the Blues ahead of half time.
Aston Villa meanwhile picked up a vital 1-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur which takes them out of the bottom two places. Mana Iwabuchi kept up her good start with the Villians when she scored the only goal of the game after twelve minutes.
West Ham Utd and Bristol City had to settle for a share of the spoils as they finished level at 1-1. An own goal by Emily van Egmond gave the Robins an early lead, before they were pegged back early in the second half when Katerina Svitkova levelled the scores.
