United benefit as Arsenal and Chelsea draw

An injury time equaliser from Tobin Heath rescued a vital point for leaders Arsenal away to Manchester City and prevented them from going down to a second straight defeat.

The Gunners had trailed to a goal from Khadija Shaw after she had been set up by Lauren Hemp - a strike that had been disputed by Arsenal after the ball had hit the referee in the build up - but late pressure brought a cool finish from Heath and a 1-1 draw which leaves them two points ahead.

Chelsea had a frustrating day as they were held to a goalless draw by Brighton & Hove Albion. The Seagulls have been stubborn opponents for them in recent seasons and this proved the case once again, with Megan Walsh pulling off a string of saves and a resilient Brighton defence standing firm to earn them a share of the spoils.

The main beneficiaries on Sunday were Manchester Utd, who have gone up to second place after beating Tottenham Hotspur 3-0. Vilde Boe Risa and Hayley Ladd scored in quick succession to put United two ahead at half time, with Leah Galton adding a third just after the hour to seal a result which leaves them just two points off the pace.

Reading FC Women made it four wins on the trot, and stretched their unbeaten run to seven games, following a dramatic 3-2 victory over Birmingham City. Gemma Lawley gave the Blues a third minute lead and Jade Pennock made it two ahead of half time. However a ten minute spell, either side of half time, turned the match completely on its head. First, Justine Vanhaevermaet reduced the arrears in injury time and, three minutes into the second half, Natasha Dowie levelled things up from the penalty spot. Emma Harries completed the turnaround when she volleyed home what proved to be the winner (see match report).

West Ham Utd continue to have a good season, which they maintained with a 3-0 defeat of Everton. Katerina Svitkova opened the scoring four minutes before half time and Dagny Brynjarsdottir made it two after the break. Claudia Walker completed a good day for her side when she rounded off the scoring, four minutes from time.

There was also late drama at Leicester City where visitors Aston Villa were 2-1 on winners. An own goal by Jemma Purfield put Villa into an early lead but after the break, Leicester fought back and a Purfield corner found the net via Villa goalkeeper Hannah Hampton. Injury time was again to be decisive and it went the way of Villa, the ball breaking to Alisha Lehmann in the area and she drilled home the winning goal from twelve yards.
