Chelsea returned to the top of the National Division with a 5-3 victory over Everton, ending the Toffees' winning start to the season.
Everton were forced to field midfielder Emily Westwood in goal in place of the injured Rachel Brown and Chelsea raced into a two-goal lead early on through Dunia Susi and Lianne Sanderson. At the other end, Natasha Dowie missed from the penalty spot but Everton were soon awarded another spot kick, this time converted by Fara Williams.
Chelsea were not put out of their stride though and further increased their lead ahead of the break with strikes from Eartha Pond and Shelby Hills.
After the break, Williams pulled a goal back but Susi scored a killer fifth goal for the Blues to seal their victory, despite a late consolation from Dowie.
Arsenal swept into third place by beating previous leaders Sunderland 5-1. Natalie Gutteridge did give the Wearsiders an early lead but Julie Fleeting, making her first league appearance since the birth of her first child, scored twice in a five-minute spell to put the Gunners ahead. After the break, Kim Little added a double and Rachel Yankey rounded off the win.
Millwall Lionesses moved back into fourth by winning 2-0 away to Bristol Academy. Ann Marie Heatherson gave Millwall a first half lead and captain Dionne Lennon added the second from a corner just before the hour. Heatherson was denied a second by a great stop from Academy goalkeeper Lauren Wells and at the other end, Claire Lacey pulled off a superb reflex save from Sharla Passiarello.
