Chelsea opened up a lead of five points at the top of the Barclays FA WSL with a 5-0 victory away to Bristol City.
The Blues started the game quickly, on the back of their midweek win over Arsenal, and were three goals ahead at the interval thanks to a Fran Kirby brace and Pernille Harder. Sam Kerr made it four, eight minutes into the second half, and Beth England completed the scoring.
Manchester City are now the nearest rivals to Chelsea after beating Manchester Utd 3-0 in their derby clash on Friday night. The first quarter of the game was tightly contested with few chances but City broke the deadlock midway through the first half, Lucy Bronze firing home after a corner was not cleared. City were enjoying the better of the spoils on the day and they made it two with nineteen minutes remaining, Lauren Hemp scoring from the rebound after Chloe Kelly's shot was saved. Caroline Weir then wrapped up the win with a superbly executed chip over Mary Earps from just outside the area.
Everton remain just ahead of Reading FC Women on goal difference after their meeting culminated in a 1-1 draw - the seventh time that the Royals have shared the points this season. Reading started the first half well and Rachel Rowe gave them the lead ten minutes before half time. After the break, Everton became more of an attacking force and earned themselves a share of the spoils when Nicoline Sorensen headed in a cross from Hayley Raso.
