Cityzens close gap on Chelsea
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 4 Mar 2021
 
With Barclays FA WSL leaders Chelsea not in action on Sunday, Manchester City took the opportunity to close the gap on them to two points by winning 4-0 against Birmingham City at St George's Park, taking their winning sequence in the league to eight matches.
 
Manchester City opened the scoring five minutes before half time, when Sam Mewis headed in a cross from Chloe Kelly. The USA international then netted her second early in the second half, firing home during a scramble following a corner. Moments later, the Cityzens were three goals ahead as a left wing cross by Lauren Hemp drifted inside the far post and Caroline Weir rounded off the scoring when she slotted home a low centre from Ellen White.
 
Arsenal meanwhile got back to winning ways with a 4-0 success away to Aston Villa, all four goals coming in the second half. The Gunners pressed hard in the first half but were unable to break through, going closest when a Vivianne Miedema header was cleared off the line, but the Dutch striker was to open the scoring just before the hour mark, converting a Beth Mead cross from close range. Jordan Nobbs increased Arsenal's lead at the midpoint of the half, following up to score after Miedema's shot had been saved, and Katie McCabe powered home a long range strike to put the Gunners further ahead. McCabe then turned provider for the final goal two minutes from time, her cross being headed in by Lisa Evans.
 
Everton meanwhile consolidated themselves in fifth place, thanks to a 3-2 win away to Tottenham Hotspur. The Toffees took a sixth minute lead when Valerie Gauvin slotted home from the penalty spot after Kerys Harrop had been penalised for handball, and the striker then scored a second spot kick shortly afterwards following a foul by Alanna Kennedy. Angela Addison gave Spurs renewed hope when she finished off from Kit Graham's through ball just before the break and Gemma Davison then levelled the scores when a typical driving run ended with her finding the far corner from the edge of the area. Everton's response was swift and three minutes later, a corner was met with a firm downward header at the near post by Jill Scott to give them their sixth victory of the season.
