Manchester City brought Arsenal's nine match winning run to an end on Sunday with a 2-0 success, which halved the gap on the leaders to three points.
Georgia Stanway sent City into an eighteenth minute lead when she converted a low cross from Demi Stokes. Katie McCabe hit the woodwork at the other end and Nikita Parris missed a great chance on the stroke of half time, before Stanway wrapped up a vital win for her side midway through the second half, latching onto a long ball forward before beating two defenders and planting a left foot shot home.
Birmingham City stay two points off second place following their 2-1 victory over Yeovil Town. The first half was goalless and produced few clear cut chances, but five minutes after the break, Lucy Staniforth broke the deadlock with a calm finish. Charlie Wellings netted the second with a firm strike and although Emily Syme pulled a goal back for Yeovil in injury time, the Blues held out for their seventh league win of the season whilst Yeovil are back on the bottom of the table.
Chelsea climbed above Reading FC Women and into fourth place after winning their meeting 1-0. Reading started the game well but Chelsea grew stronger as the half went on and nearly went in front when Ramona Bachmann's shot was scrambled off the line by Jo Potter. Two minutes into the second half, Ji So-Yun fired Chelsea in front with a low drive to make it four wins in five matches for her side.
West Ham Utd were 1-0 winners away to Brighton & Hove Albion and this result has taken them into the top six. The game had been fairly evenly contested with Kayleigh Green missing the best chance for the Seagulls but shortly afterwards, West Ham took the lead when Jane Ross scored with a neat glancing header from Julia Simic's cross. Esmee de Graaf almost made it two when her shot hit the post but the Hammers now have two wins in successive matches, to continue their movement up the table.
The first Merseyside derby of the season turned out to be a good occasion for Everton, as they gave new manager Willie Kirk a winning start by beating Liverpool 2-1. In a flying start to the game at Southport, Inessa Kaagman gave Everton a fifth minute lead with a strike from 25 yards, Liverpool hitting back to equalise just afterwards when Jess Clarke following up to score after Laura Coombs' shot had been saved. Simone Magill put Everton back in front just before half time with a powerful shot from the edge of the area and Everton needed to survive late pressure from the Reds, Leandra Little hitting the post with a header, before they could celebrate a first win of the season which also takes them off the bottom.
