Arsenal bounced back from defeat in their previous league game to put an end to Manchester City's 100% record by beating them 1-0.
A game of few chances was decided two minutes before half time, when Vivianne Miedema raced onto to Kim Little's through ball to slot home the only goal.
This gave Chelsea the chance to go to the top of the table, which they duly accepted with a 3-1 victory away to West Ham Utd. Emma Hayes' side needed to do it the hard way though as they went a goal behind to Adriana Leon just before the hour mark, but two goals in a three minute spell from Sophie Ingle and Ji So-Yun turned the match around in Chelsea's favour and Drew Spence sealed the points in injury time.
Manchester Utd meanwhile made it three wins on the trot when they defeated Reading FC Women 2-0. United led from the sixteenth minute thanks to Kirsty Hanson's goal and Jess Sigsworth wrapped up the win with the second, five minutes from time.
The result keeps United in fourth place, on goal difference from Everton who were 2-0 winners over Brighton & Hove Albion. Both goals came in the second half, Chloe Kelly putting Everton ahead with her fourth goal of the season and Esme Morgan adding the second.
Tottenham Hotspur claimed their third victory of the season as they came from behind to beat Bristol City 2-1. Abi Harrison gave City the lead just before half time as they looked to pick up their first win of the season but the game turned in two second half minutes when Kit Graham scored twice to put Spurs in front. Sophie Baggaley saved a Rachel Furness penalty shortly afterwards but Spurs were able to close the game out to move themselves into the top half of the table.
The two teams at the foot of the table at the start of the day met each other and it was Birmingham City who were to celebrate their first victory of the campaign, 2-0 against Liverpool. The Blues got off to a great start when Kerys Harrop gave them the lead with nine minutes on the clock, with Lucy Staniforth clinching the points when scoring the second, seven minutes from time.
