The top end of the Barclays FA WSL has something of a London-centric look about it, with four of the current top five based in the capital.
Arsenal continue to lead the table following their fourth straight win, 4-0 away to Aston Villa. The home side had started the day in third place and with an unbeaten start and the scoreline was goalless at the interval. Kim Little opened the scoring six minutes after the restart and the Gunners were to add three further goals late on, Mana Iwabuchi scoring against her former club before Katie McCabe and Little added further goals.
Tottenham Hotspur made sure of keeping pace with Arsenal in second place by winning 2-0 at Leicester City. Rachel Williams gave Spurs the lead just before half time and Angela Addison made sure their 100% record stayed intact with the second goal, two minutes from time.
In the six games over the weekend, only one team enjoyed a home victory in the solitary match where both teams scored, and that was Chelsea who defeated Brighton & Hove Albion 3-1. Guro Reiten gave Chelsea the lead before half time and Sam Kerr added a second before half time. Danielle Carter pulled one back for the Seagulls after the restart but Chelsea were to make the game safe when Beth England scored ten minutes from time.
Manchester Utd got back to winning ways with a 2-0 success away to Birmingham City on Sunday night. Leah Galton opened the scoring for United, midway through the first half, and Ella Toone wrapped up the win for her first with ten minutes remaining.
West Ham Utd meanwhile claimed their second win in as many matches when they beat Manchester City 2-0, condemning the Cityzens to a third straight defeat. The Hammers took the lead through Dagny Brynjarsdottir just before half time, and it was Yui Hasegawa who sealed the points injury time when she scored West Ham's second goal.
Everton are starting to pick up momentum with a second straight victory, but it was another defeat for Reading FC Women as the Toffees ran out 3-0 winners. Anna Anvegard opened the scoring after two minutes and Claire Emslie made it two ahead of the interval.
