The Gunners were quickly into their stride and took the the lead through Kim Little after nine minutes. Jordan Nobbs sewed up the points for Arsenal when she scored the second goal, midway through the first half.
Manchester City meanwhile hold on to second place, thanks to a 4-1 victory away to Tottenham Hotspur. City got off to a fast start by scoring twice inside the opening five minutes, Pauline Bremer giving them the lead and Ellen White quickly adding a second.

Chelsea stretched their unbeaten start to ten matches when they defeated Reading FC Women 3-1 to keep up their own challenge. The game was notable for the first appearance of Chelsea's marquee signing Sam Kerr but it was Reading who were to strike first when Fara Williams gave them a sixteenth minute lead. However moments later, the Royals were reduced to ten players when goalkeeper Grace Moloney was red carded for a foul on Kerr. Chelsea pressure brought an equaliser just before the interval, when Kerr's back heel released Beth England through to score. This game was a unique one in the WSL on Sunday as it contained second half goals! Guro Reiten put Chelsea ahead midway through the second half and Erin Cuthbert made the points safe when she scored the third goal.
Bristol City brought an end to their unwanted run of fifteen league matches without a win, stretching back virtually a year, with a surprise 1-0 success away to Manchester Utd. The only goal of the game came eleven minutes before half time, via a fine solo effort from Ebony Salmon against her former club. City needed to withstand intense United pressure during the second half but with goalkeeper Sophie Baggaley in excellent form, held on for a much needed result which takes them off the bottom of the table.
