All four teams involved in the battle for survival in the Barclays FA WSL picked up points over the past few days, including some vital last gasp goals to keep things very tighty with only two games left to play.
On Saturday, Aston Villa took on Bristol City and looked on course for a crucial win when a Meaghan Sargeant own goal and Natalie Haigh put them two ahead. City pulled one back through Faye Bryson and, five minutes into injury time, an Ella Mastrantonio free kick earned the Robins a 2-2 draw and a valuable point.
Birmingham City got off to a flying start against Reading FC Women when Ruby Mace gave them a sixth minute lead. Reading hit back in the second half with Rachel Rowe equalising just after the hour mark. Neither side could find a winner and had to settle for a share of the spoils, the ninth time Reading have drawn this season.
West Ham Utd also picked up an important point as they battled out a goalless draw with fifth placed Everton. Martha Thomas came closest to breaking the deadlock as she hit the bar with a header in a game which defences largely dominated.
Then on Wednesday night, the Second City derby saw another vital clash, Birmingham City and Aston Villa finishing level at 1-1. It was more late frustration for Villa, who led for most of the match through Freya Gregory, until another injury time leveller, this time from a Veatriki Sarri free kick.
It has been a good week for Arsenal in their quest to secure a top three place. On Sunday they won 2-0 against Brighton & Hove Albion, courtesy of a goal in each half from Jordan Nobbs.
The Gunners followed this up by beating West Ham Utd 2-0 on Wednesday night. Vivianne Miedema put them in front just after the half hour, before Kim Little wrapped up the win with the second goal, twelve minutes from time.
Manchester Utd meanwhile kept their top three hopes alive as they defeated Tottenham Hotspur 4-1. United inflicted most of the damage in the first half, Ella Toone giving them a ninth minute lead with Christen Press and Jess Sigsworth adding further goals. Toone scored her second from the penalty spot three minutes after the restart, before Alanna Kennedy netted an injury time consolation for Spurs.
