  5. Tight at the top

    It's been an important afternoon at the top of the WSL.

    Manchester City's 4-0 win at Birmingham has drawn them within two points of leaders Chelsea and, perhaps, crucially, the sides' goal difference is now level.

    Arsenal boosted their Champions League hopes with a 4-0 win at Aston Villa and they are now six points behind third-placed Manchester United with a game in hand.

  6. How they stand

    Not a great day for the sides in the bottom half, then.

    Aston Villa and Birmingham made big guns Arsenal and Manchester City work for the points but the high-flying pair ultimately eased to 4-0 victories in the West Midlands.

    Tottenham also missed a chance to move clear of danger, giving away two penalties in a 3-2 defeat by Everton.

    All three sides still have a cushion above bottom side Bristol City but the relegation battle is far from over.

    WSL table.

    Birmingham 0-4 Man City

    Gareth Taylor's side register eight straight league victories and are now just two points behind league-leaders Chelsea.

    Blues are without a win in their last five and sit ninth in the table.


    Tottenham 2-3 Everton

    What a week it's been for Jill Scott.

    The Everton midfielder, on loan from Manchester City, won her 150th England cap in midweek and followed that up by heading the winner here.

    Two Valerie Gauvin penalties, after two Tottenham defensive gaffes, put the Toffees ahead but Spurs fought back through Angela Addison and Gemma Davison before Scott settled it.


    Birmingham 0-4 Man City

    Rose Lavelle cut inside and her chance hits the top of the crossbar to deny City their fifth of the afternoon.

    We're moments away from full-time now.

  10. Post update

    Tottenham 2-3 Everton

    Bit of a delay at The Hive for a hand injury to Tottenham sub Jessica Naz who has had to go off.

    Everton, though, continue to wind the seconds down and now they have a corner. No hurry.


    Aston Villa 0-4 Arsenal

    After a rather lacklustre first half, the second half delivered four goals from four different goalscorers as Arsenal registered their first win of 2021.

    They now stand in fourth spot with 26 points, as they bid for Champions League qualification.

    Villa, meanwhile, sit in 10th on ten points.

  12. Post update

    Tottenham 2-3 Everton

    Halfway through five minutes of injury time but the ball is with Everton deep into Tottenham's half.

    Can the hosts conjure one last chance of an equaliser?

  13. Post update

    Tottenham 2-3 Everton

    Tottenham have been their own worst enemies in this one - two silly penalties and a poor goal from a set-piece.

    They cause themselves more problems with an awful free-kick straight to an Everton shirt but Simone Magill's subsequent strike from 20 yards is just wide.

  14. GOAL: Aston Villa 0-4 Arsenal

    Lisa Evans (87 mins)

    Game over!

    Lisa Evans heads in for her first goal of the season, after a cross from Katie McCabe allows Evans to get up high to beat Lisa Weiss.

  15. Post update

    Tottenham 2-3 Everton

    Spurs are struggling to get out of their own half, let alone fashion an equaliser.

    Everton have managed this game exceptionally well since Jill Scott's header put them back in front.

    Five minutes plus stoppage time to go.

  16. Post update

    Virtually all over at the two games in the West Midlands then... any late drama at The Hive?


    Tottenham 2-3 Everton

    Aurora Mikalsen makes a super save to keep Tottenham in this one.

    Toffees substitute Hayley Raso finds space in the right side of the box but Mikalsen dives full length to turn her shot away.

    Izzy Christiansen had fired into the side netting a few minutes earlier, Everton really pushing for a killer fourth goal here.

  18. GOAL: Aston Villa 0-3 Arsenal

    Katie McCabe (73 mins)

    That is a stunning goal from Katie McCabe!

    It's a wonderful strike from outside the box, and it drives into the top corner for the afternoon's best goal so far.

  19. GOAL: Birmingham 0-4 Man City

    Caroline Weir (65 mins)

    Caroline Weir.

    Game, set and match for Man City.

    Caroline Weir makes it four for the visitors through an easy tap-in from close range following a pass from Ellen White.

    That's six this season for Weir, now.
