Arsenal and Chelsea share points

It’s as you were after Friday night’s top of the table clash left Arsenal still two points ahead of Chelsea, who have a game in hand after their meeting finished goalless. Both teams went close to scoring but the draw leaves things tight between the two sides as we go into the international break.  

Tottenham Hotspur have hopped back into the other Champions League spot after they won 2-0 away to Birmingham City. Ashleigh Neville scored for the second week in a row, to give Spurs the lead midway through the second half and Ria Percival added the second late on, to keep up her side’s chase for a top three place but deal another blow to the Blues’ hopes of getting away from danger.

The Manchester derby was a vital one for both clubs and it was Manchester City who were 1-0 winners over Manchester Utd. A solitary goal from Caroline Weir, nine minutes from time, rekindled City’s Champions League hopes and took United out of the top three whilst City are up to fifth, two points behind United and a further two points adrift of third placed Tottenham.

Reading FC Women’s superb run of form was brought to a crashing halt as they were beaten 4-1 by Brighton & Hove Albion. The Seagulls led at the break with a goal from Kayleigh Green and the Welsh international added another early in the second half. Aileen Whelan made it three on the hour and Emma Koivisto rounded off the scoring for Hope Powell’s side, before the Royals grabbed a late consolation through Amalie Eikeland.

Aston Villa moved themselves closer towards mid-table, thanks to a 2-0 victory away to Everton who went down to a fourth straight defeat. Both of Villa’s goals came in the opening quarter of the game, Emily Gielnik giving them a seventeenth minute lead and Ramona Petzelberger adding the second shortly afterwards.

Leicester City claimed their third win in four matches when beating West Ham Utd 3-0. Natasha Flint and Ashleigh Plumptre put them two ahead inside the opening ten minutes and Freya Gregory netted the third, five minutes into the second half to complete a result which takes them out of the bottom two.

The Barclays FA WSL will now take a break for the international matches and the Fifth Round of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup, before resuming action again on 2nd March.
