Chelsea regain three point advantage

After having lost their unbeaten record seven days previously, Chelsea had a great weekend overall and are three points clear at the top of the table again after winning 3-0 at Bristol City.

Lauren James opened the scoring for the Blues in the seventeenth minute and Erin Cuthbert made it two ahead of half time. Sam Kerr rounded off the scoring on the hour mark to ensure that Chelsea would go into the five week break on top of the pile.

Manchester City might not be looking forward to the holiday break as they have been in terrific form in recent weeks, notching up a fourth victory on the trot when beating Everton 4-1. Khadija Shaw is starting to hit her best scoring form once again and in a dominant start to the game from the Cityzens, she netted twice and Jill Roord added a third. Aurora Galli gave Everton hope when she pulled a goal back after ten minutes of the second half but City sealed a victory which leaves them in second place and three points behind leaders Chelsea, when Shaw completed her hat-trick on 65 minutes.

Arsenal went into their North London derby clash with Tottenham Hotspur on the back of a win over Chelsea and full of confidence after seven wins in eight matches, but the form book was overturned as Spurs recorded their first ever victory in the fixture. Caitlin Foord did rattle the post with a 20-yard striker and Barbora Votikova was in outstanding form in goal for Tottenham and the winning moment came just before the hour, when Martha Thomas swept in a shot from around 12 yards to earn Spurs an historic 1-0 win.

There was also a lot frustration for Manchester Utd who lost ground on the top three but jubilation for Liverpool whose impressive season continued with a 2-1 victory. United got off to the best possible start when Ella Toone gave them the lead with only three minutes on the clock but a Millie Turner own goal brought the scores level ahead of half time and midway through the second half, Taylor Hinds completed the turnaround when she scored the winner, to give the Reds a result which takes them level on points with United.

Aston Villa meanwhile maintained their climb away from immediate danger and towards mid-table with a 1-0 victory against Brighton & Hove Albion. Adriana Leon scored the only goal of the game in the 63rd minute to hand Villa a third victory of the season and lift themselves out of the bottom three, moving a point ahead of the Seagulls.

There was late drama at Leicester City where their clash with West Ham Utd finished in a 1-1 draw. Lena Petermann gave Leicester the lead during the second half but their hopes of ending their seven match run without a win were dashed deep into injury time, when Honoka Hayashi grabbed an equaliser for the Hammers, which sees them climb off the bottom of the table on goal difference.
