Arsenal step up the pressure

Arsenal have opened up a lead of five points over Chelsea following their  4-0 victory over Reading FC Women on Wednesday night.

In the first match in the league since the international break, the Gunners got off to a strong start as they took the lead midway through the first half, Vivianne Miedema finishing off a good move with a low left foot drive into the corner of the net. Two minutes later, Katie McCabe fired in a second from close range and Leah Williamson made it three ahead of half time with a powerful header from a corner.

Arsenal kept up the pace in the second half and Beth Mead came close to extending their lead with a powerful strike which crashed against the bar. A fourth goal was to come though and Stina Blackstenius completed the scoring for her side when she slotted home a cross from Miedema.

At the other end of the table, Everton secured their first league win since November with a 1-0 success away to Aston Villa. The home side had the better of things in the first half and Everton goalkeeper Sandy MacIver made saves from Ramona Petzelberger and Sarah Mayling to keep her side on level terms at the interval. Everton came into the game more after the break with Toni Duggan and Emily Gielnik both going close and with ten minutes remaining, Hanna Bennison’s pass released Aurora Galli on goal and she tucked her shot past Hannah Hampton for the only goal of the game and seal a win which takes her side out of the bottom two places.
