    FT: Arsenal 1-1 Bristol City

    So Arsenal and Bristol City both have four points after their first three games of the WSL 1 season.

    The Gunners will be very frustrated with that return, as they are now five points behind Chelsea and Man City in the title race, in an 18-game season.

    Meanwhile, for a Bristol City side who finished second from bottom in the Spring Series earlier this year, this is a fine result. They showed real improvements since June's 5-0 reverse against the Gunners.
