Women's Super League: Four talking points from the weekend's action

Four matches took place on Sunday in the WSL with Liverpool facing West Ham on Monday evening. There was another twist in the title race while Yeovil Town lost yet again.

Miedema goes into the record books after goal against Reading

The Dutch striker has now scored 16 goals in a WSL season, the first player in the history of the league to do so. Miedema took just two minutes to surpass the record of 15 goals set by Birmingham city striker Ellen White last season.

With seven games to go, it seems a safe bet that Miedema will increase her record and she could become the first WSL striker to surpass 20 goals in a league campaign.

Ellen White comes back with a bang to sink Chelsea

Injuries are one of the most frustrating things that players experience and there is no better feeling than getting back out on the grass. White took that one step further when she came on in the 69th minute and scored the winner two minutes into stoppage time.

It seemed that Birmingham would have to settle for a draw after Erin Cuthbert got hers and Chelsea's second goal of the game seven minutes from time but White's fantastic finish from Charlie Wellings' cross saw manager Marta Tejedor win her first game in charge of the Blues and move level on points with Chelsea.

Manchester City maintain slender lead at the top

Man City did what was expected of them as they recorded a straight forward 3-0 win against Brighton. With Arsenal winning, Man City made sure they stayed just a point ahead of the Gunners thanks to three first half goals as Nikita Parris bagged a brace and Gemma Bonner also got on the scoresheet.

Arsenal have a advantage over Man City due to a game in hand but Nick Cushing's side are not giving up on being WSL champions for the first time since 2016 and qualifying for the Champions League for the fourth consecutive season.

Bristol City win back to back games for the first time this season

Consistency has been hard to come by for a Bristol City side who always seem to follow a good result with a bad one. For the first time this campaign, the Vixens managed to win back to back games. Their 1-0 win against Birmingham last weekend was matched with a 2-1 victory against West Country rivals Yeovil Town. As a result of their latest win, the in-form side moved up to fifth place, above Reading who lost to Arsenal.
