Chelsea profit as Arsenal draw

The points were shared as Barclays FA WSL leaders Arsenal battled out a 1-1 draw with Manchester Utd when two of the top three came face to face.

Alessia Russo headed United in front after ten minutes and Mary Earps pulled off a great save to keep out a Vivianne Miedema header to preserve their lead at half time. Ella Toone could have made it two after the break but Arsenal, who had been reduced to ten players when Katie McCabe was showed a second yellow card, equalised when a defence splitting pass from Miedema released Stina Blackstenius who scored her first goal for the club.  

Chelsea were able to capitalise with a 1-0 victory over Manchester City which closes the gap on Arsenal to two points. Guro Reiten headed in a fourteenth minute winner for the Blues to all but end City’s remaining hopes for a challenge and set things up nicely for when Chelsea meet Arsenal on Friday night.  

Tottenham Hotspur boosted their top three hopes by running out 4-0 winners over Brighton & Hove Albion. Kyah Simon gave Spurs an early lead and they sealed the points with three goals in six minutes after the break. Ashleigh Neville made it two just before the hour and quickfire strikes frp, Shelina Zadorsky and Simon put the seal on Spurs’  biggest win of the season.

Seven wins in eight games now for Reading FC Women who are firmly in the frame for a Champions League place, following their 2-1 success away to Everton. Once again, Kelly Chambers’ side came from behind to take the points, Anna Anvegard having given the Toffees a fifth minute lead. In-form striker Natasha Dowie brought Reading level midway through the second half and 17-year-old Tia Primmer scored the winner with two minutes left.

West Ham Utd picked up their fifth win of the campaign, 2-1 at Aston Villa. Abbey-Leigh Stringer put the Hammers in front early on, with Villa levelling just before half time, Alisha Lehmann scoring from the penalty spot against her former club. Katerina Svitkova restored West Ham’s lead after the break and they held on for a result which keeps them just outside of the top half.

A vital clash saw the bottom two meet each other and it was Leicester City who were 2-1  winners at Birmingham City to boost their survival hopes. The crucial moment came in the first half when Jess Sigsworth scored a penalty after Blues goalkeeper Emily Ramsey was red carded for a foul. Jemma Purfueld made it two before the interval and although Birmingham rallied and pulled a late goal back through Louise Quinn, Leicester held out for a result which puts a gap of five points between the two teams.
