Blues foiled by City recovery
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 5 Oct 2018
 
Arsenal keep hold of the leadership of the FA WSL despite not having a game over the weekend.
 
Second placed Birmingham City required a point from their home game with Manchester City in order to replace them and they looked to be well on course to doing so when they were handed the lead via a bizarre 40-yard own goal from Abbie McManus which bounced over the head of Ellie Roebuck, and then Meaghan Sargeant put them two ahead when she headed in from a corner. For the third match in a row, Man City had found themselves two goals behind but they gave themselves a lifeline when Caroline Weir reduced the arrears. Weir then turned provider for the equaliser with a great run before setting up Nikita Parris to score and the comeback was completed when a deflected shot from Tessa Wullaert proved to be the winner, although Birmingham almost salvaged a point when Lucy Staniforth hit the post late on.
 
Reading FC Women are back in the top four following their 1-0 victory away to Liverpool. The only goal of the game came through a delightful lobbed effort from Brooke Chaplen, ten minutes before half time, which gave the Royals their second league win of the season and they are just two points off the pace.
 
Chelsea finally kicked their league season into life with a 2-0 win against Brighton & Hove Albion. Although they are yet to concede a goal, Emma Hayes' side had also failed to hit the back of the net in their opening three matches but they got themselves off the mark with 32 minutes on the clock, when Magdalena Eriksson's pass released Fran Kirby through on goal to score. Just four minutes later, Erin Cuthbert finished off a good move to double their lead and set Chelsea on their way to their first victory. For Brighton, it was their fourth narrow defeat in a row and they are yet to score a goal in their first season in the top flight.
 
There was better news for the division's other newcomers, West Ham Utd, as they recorded their first victory, 2-1 against Yeovil Town. The first half was goalless but midway through the second half, Hammers substitute Leanne Kiernan gave her side the lead following a corner. Back came Yeovil and they got back on course for their first point of the season when Ellie Mason scored from close range but barely a minute later, another West Ham substitute was to strike a decisive blow as Rosie Kmita drilled home a shot from the edge of the area.
