On the day hailed as a ‘new era' for women's football and the beginning of the full time professional top division, the opening day table ended up with something of an old fashioned look about it with Arsenal sat in top spot.
The Gunners got off to the best possible start as they ran out 5-0 winners over Liverpool, recording the biggest win of the day in the process. Arsenal are boasting much firepower in their line up this season and were ahead after six minutes when Vivianne Miedema put them ahead. Lisa Evans and Kim Little also got on the scoresheet before Miedema netted her second ahead of half time. Liverpool battled on after the break and Arsenal did not add any further goals until injury time, when Miedema completed her first hat-trick for the club and the first by an Arsenal player in the WSL since Kelly Smith against Bristol Academy in September 2014.
Reading FC Women will also be happy with their first match, which ended in a 4-0 victory against Yeovil Town. The Royals were two up inside the opening eleven minutes thanks to Gemma Davison and Fara Williams, before adding further goals either side of the hour mark through Lauren Bruton and Remi Allen.
Bristol City finished last season in good form away from home and they took this into the new campaign with a 1-0 success away to newly promoted Brighton & Hove Albion. A closely fought match was settled midway through the second half in the Vixens' favour, when Lucy Graham scored the only goal of the game.
The fastest goal of the day turned out to be the only one of the match and gave Birmingham City a winning start at the expense of Everton. There were just 42 seconds on the clock when Charlie Wellings burst through to produced a well taken finish and Birmingham restricted Everton to few chances after that to secure themselves the three points.
The much anticipated clash between last season's top two ended with honours even as Chelsea and Manchester City battled out a goalless draw. Both teams had spells on top during the course of the game but found both defences and goalkeepers in fine form as they shared the points.
