Chelsea in driving seat
 Women's Football WSL1 News - 11 May 2018
 
It has been a magnificent few days for Chelsea and, hot on the heels from their SSE Women's FA Cup triumph at Wembley, came the news that WSL 1 title rivals Manchester City had gone down to their third defeat of the season on Tuesday night.
 
City had gone back on top of the table last Thursday with a 6-1 win away to Bristol City but this time they found themselves behind early on when Beth England - on loan from Chelsea - headed in a tenth minute cross from Alex Greenwood to put Liverpool ahead. From that point, the Reds defended superbly and City were never able to get themselves back on level terms for a valuable point. They came closest when Sophie Ingle cleared off the line from a Jill Scott header and Liverpool held on for a 1-0 victory which takes them back into the top half of the table.
 
This gave Chelsea the chance to open up a lead of three points the following night - albeit against Birmingham City who have made a habit of upsetting the teams at the top this season. Fran Kirby gave Chelsea a first half lead when she fired in a shot from the edge of the area but the Blues battled back after the break and equalised when Hayley Ladd volleyed in following a cross from Jess Carter. Chelsea needed to survive a spell of pressure from the Blues but held out and as the game went into injury time, Erin Cuthbert finished off a good move involving Kirby and Jonna Andersson for a 2-1 win which puts them in the driving seat in the title race, both sides having three matches left to play.
 
Bristol City bounced back from their defeat by Manchester City to record their fourth win of the season, 2-1 at Everton. Danielle Turner gave Everton the lead after seven minutes but an injury-hit Vixens side soon got back on level terms thanks to Lauren Hemp and as the game went into injury time, Julie Biesmans curled home a 25-yard free kick to send City home with the points.
 
Three days later and it was Everton's turn to recover from defeat, with a 3-1 victory over Yeovil Town. Danielle Turner was again on the scoresheet as she gave Everton the lead but, three minutes into the second half, came the moment Yeovil have waited for all season - debutant Libby Piggott scoring from close range for their first league goal of the season, at the sixteenth attempt. It was not enough to earn Yeovil their first point of the season though, as Mollie Green restored Everton's lead and she wrapped up the win with seventeen minutes remaining when she scored her second from the penalty spot.
