Chelsea are the opening day leaders in the Premier League after they ran out 5-0 winners over Liverpool.
Lianne Sanderson marked her debut for the Blues by giving them the lead and Eniola Aluko quickly added a second. Sanderson made it three before the break and she went on to complete her hat-trick in the second half, after Aluko had bagged her double.
Arsenal have also started strongly, beating Blackburn Rovers 4-0. Kelly Smith netted a third minute opener and grabbed her second just after the quarter hour. Jayne Ludlow added a third five minutes before half time and Smith rounded off the victory with her hat-trick, ten minutes after the restart.
Everton made it a winning start, a narrow 1-0 success against Doncaster Rovers Belles. Emily Westwood scored the only of the game, as early as the opening minute.
Leeds Carnegie came from behind to record a 2-1 victory over newly promoted WFC Fulham. Lauren Phillips gave Fulham a great start by putting them in front in the seventh minute but Katie Holtham equalised on the stroke of half time and Sue Smith secured the points with the winning goal, midway through the second half.
The other top flight newcomers, Nottingham Forest, also suffered a defeat in their opening match. After a tightly contested game, it was Birmingham City who emerged as 1-0 winners after Becky Hall broke through to score the winner with fifteen minutes remaining.
Honours were even as Bristol Academy and Watford battled out a 2-2 draw - the only drawn match throughout the Premier League. Stef Curtis opened the scoring for Academy ten minutes before half time but substitute Jodian Clarke made a great impact for Watford after the break, twice bursting through to beat debutant goalkeeper Rachel Simkin. Bristol battled back and earned themselves a point thanks to a well taken goal from Kerry Bartlett.
