Arsenal's impressive start to the new season gathered further momentum with a 5-0 victory over Manchester City.
Vivianne Miedema gave them an early lead and Kim Little fired home the second, midway through the half. Katie McCabe made it three with a powerful finish on the hour and after Little had increased their lead from the penalty spot, Leah Williamson rounded off a great night for her side with the final goal in injury time.
Tottenham Hotspur had spent a couple of hours on top of the table, for the first time in their history, following a 1-0 win against Reading FC Women. Both sides had opportunities during the game but with five minutes remaining, Jessica Naz scored the only goal of the game to hand Spurs a third successive win and condemn Reading to another narrow loss.
Aston Villa continue to impress in the early stages and complete the top three after winning 1-0 at Brighton & Hove Albion. The Seagulls had started the day on top of the table but a tight game was settled just after half time when Emily Gielnik scored the only goal of the game, the first time that Brighton have conceded this season.
Chelsea follow on in fourth as they ran out 6-1 winners away to Manchester Utd. Fran Kirby gave the Blues a flying start with a second minute goal and after Pernille Harder scored a fine solo effort, Sam Kerr made it three before half time. Alessia Russo pulled one back for United against her former club but Kerr netted her second three minutes later and Chelsea went on to crown the win late on with further strikes from Drew Spence and Jessie Fleming.
West Ham Utd notched up their win in some style, beating Leicester City 4-0. Tameka Yallop marked her debut for the Hammers by giving them the lead and Claudia Walker made it two ahead of half time, before an own goal from the unfortunate Ashleigh Plumptre made it three before the break. Yallop went on to round off a great first match for her new club as she scored her second goal, nine minutes from time.
Everton have had a tough start to the season but put it behind them to notch up their first victory, 3-1 against Birmingham City on Saturday morning. Leonie Maier put the Toffees ahead early on, with Birmingham fighting back to equalise through Jade Pennock just after the half hour. Hanna Bennison came on as a second half substitute and fired Everton back in front with seventeen minutes remaining and Rikke Sevecke sealed the points for Willie Kirk's side in injury time.
