Chelsea preserved their two point lead at the top of the Barclays FA WSL by winning 3-0 at Everton on Wednesday night.
Three days after their FA Women's Continental Tyres League Cup success, Chelsea were back in the groove quickly although they were denied the chance to take an early lead when Melanie Leupolz' penalty was saved by Tinja-Riikka Korpela. However, on thirteen minutes they were ahead, Fran Kirby maintaining her outstanding current form by latching onto Sam Kerr's through ball to score. Kirby then turned provider for the second goal on the hour, teeing up Pernille Harder to slot home from close range, and Leupolz netted the third with ten minutes remaining.
Manchester City remain hard on Chelsea's heels after they also won 3-0 away to Bristol City. Caroline Weir opened the scoring against her former club after twelve minutes and Ellen White made it two on the half hour. The home side battled to keep themselves in the game after the break but it was the Cityzens who were to grab a third goal through Sam Mewis in the dying minutes.
Brighton & Hove Albion are in the top half of the table for the first time this season as they made it four wins on the trot, beating Aston Villa 2-0. Aileen Whelan followed up a rebound to put the Seagulls in front during the first half and they sealed the points nine minutes from time, Inessa Kaagman scoring from the penalty spot after Kayleigh Green had been fouled.
There was late drama as West Ham Utd and Birmingham City shared a 2-2 draw, the point being enough to take the Hammers off the bottom of the table. Emily Murphy gave Birmingham the lead with eight minutes on the clock but after the break, West Ham hit back to level the scores through Emily van Egmond and Katerina Svitkova then looked to have given them a precious victory. However deep into injury time, the Blues snatched themselves a valuable point when Ruby Mace stole in to head home a deep cross from Sarah Mayling.
