Brighton & Hove Albion are on top of the Barclays FA WSL for the first time in their history after storming to a 5-0 victory away to Birmingham City on Sunday.
Hope Powell's side will lead the table for the next two weeks and never looked back after Victoria Williams gave them a second minute lead, which was doubled on half time via an Inessa Kaagman penalty. After the break, Danielle Carter and Emma Koivisto scored in quick succession, before Kayleigh Green rounded off a perfect day for her side with the final goal.
Arsenal built on their opening day victory over champions Chelsea by running out 4-0 winners at Reading FC Women. Jennifer Beattie gave the Gunners a lead which was doubled by Beth Mead on the half hour and Vivianne Miedema made it three just two minutes later. Miedema then kept up her outstanding form with a second after the break to complete a good week for her club.
Manchester Utd meanwhile made it two wins out of two with a 3-1 success away to Leicester City. Ella Toone opened the scoring for Marc Skinner's side ahead of the break and Maria Thorisdottir made it two from a corner, early in the second half. Abbie McManus gave Leicester hope on the hour when she pulled one back against her former club, but United wrapped up the win midway through the second half when Martha Thomas scored her first goal for the club since her summer move.
Tottenham Hotspur complete a quartet of clubs on maximum points with the most eyecatching result of the day, winning 2-1 away to Manchester City. Lauren Hemp gave City a sixth minute lead but they were unable to capitalise on their great start and on the hour, Spurs fought back and levelled the scores via a well taken finish from Rachel Williams.

Kerr then scored her second to extinguish any hopes of an Everton recovery and Beth England rounded off the scoring with eleven minutes remaining.
