Chelsea head the Barclays FA WSL table at the start of the international break, keeping hold of top spot after scoring six times without reply past Birmingham City.
It has not been a good week for the Blues and they found themselves two down at the break, Sam Kerr scoring both before the Australian went on to complete her hat-trick three minutes after the restart. Fran Kirby got in on the act on the hour and after Guro Reiten made it five, Kirby rounded off the scoring with her second in injury time.
Manchester City kept the gap at two points by winning 3-0 away to Tottenham Hotspur. The Cityzens took a fifth minute lead via a Rebecca Spencer own goal and Janine Beckie made it two ahead of half time. Caroline Weir wrapped up the win with the third goal just after the hour.
Arsenal's quest for a Champions League place received a boost with a 4-0 success away to Bristol City. Vivianne Miedema put the Gunners ahead with four minutes on the clock and Danielle van de Donk added a second straight after the break. Beth Mead made it three and Miedema netted the final goal, meaning she has now scored 15 times in six appearances against the Robins.
In contrast, Manchester Utd were dealt a blow to their top three hopes as they were beaten 1-0 by Brighton & Hove Albion. Inness Kaagman, who is having a fine season, netted the only goal of the game for the Seagulls who are looking well on course for a top half finish.
The result of the weekend came on Saturday though, as West Ham Utd lifted themselves off the bottom with a 5-0 victory at Reading FC Women. All of the Hammers' goals came in the first half, with Kenza Dali, Katerina Svitkova and Martha Thomas putting them three ahead inside the opening eleven minutes. Thomas netted twice more to complete her hat-trick and a fantastic result for her club.
This means that Aston Villa are now at the foot, following their 3-1 defeat at the hands of fifth placed Everton. Lucy Graham ensured that Everton led at half time, then Izzy Christiansen made it two from the penalty spot and Simone Magill netted the third, before Villa grabbed an injury time consolation through Chloe Arthur.
