Man City keep noses in front
 Women's Football WSL1 News - 13 Feb 2018
 
WSL1 News - Man City keep noses in front - 13 Feb 2018 - Women's Football NewsThe top two kept up the pace in WSL 1 and Manchester City stay two points ahead following their 4-0 victory against Liverpool.
 
The leaders went in front with just two minutes on the clock and in bizarre fashion, a clearance from Sophie Ingle hitting Nikita Parris in the face and cannoning back past Becky Flaherty on its way into the net. That was the only goal of the first half but the second came eleven minutes after the restart, Izzy Christiansen slotting home another goal from the penalty spot after Caroline Weir was adjudged to have brought Parris down. Parris then scored a more conventional goal on the hour, with a fine header from a Claire Emslie corner and Abbie McManus bundled in the fourth to round off the win.
 
This result actually returned City to the top of the table as Chelsea had temporarily deposed them the day before when winning 2-0 away to Birmingham City. Fran Kirby gave them a first half lead with the rebound after Crystal Dunn's shot had been blocked and Ji So-Yun curled home a shot from the edge of the area with twenty minutes remaining.
 
Arsenal repeated their FA Cup victory over Yeovil Town a week earlier, this time winning 4-0 and moving up into third as a result. The Gunners led at the break through a goal from Danielle Carter and Beth Mead made it two, early in the second half. Carter headed in a Lisa Evans cross to put her side further ahead and Mead also completed her double late on.
 
Sunderland continue to have a good season and are back in the top half of the table after a 2-1 victory away to Bristol City on Saturday night. In wet and windy conditions at Stoke Gifford, Bridget Galloway gave Sunderland an early lead when she swept home a Dominique Bruinenberg cross but City were back on level terms just four minutes later when Lauren Hemp powered in a header from a centre by Frankie Brown. Just before the hour, the home defence failed to clear from a Lucy Staniforth free kick and Bristol-born Rachel Pitman was on hand to slot in. Carla Humphrey almost equalised late on when her dipping shot came back off the bar but Sunderland otherwise defended well for their fourth win of the season.
 
Everton provided their best result of the season so far when they beat Reading FC Women 2-1 and this takes them out of the bottom two. Courtney Sweetman-Kirk put them in front in the fourth minute and Chloe Kelly fired home the second, midway through the first half. Rachel Furness pulled a goal back for Reading with a header shortly before half time and the Royals pressed for an equaliser after the break, but Everton stood firm despite Brooke Chaplen hitting the post late on against her former club.
