WSL 1 | Gameweek 13 | Arsenal and Chelsea draw in title-race six-pointer

In the WSL 1, Arsenal and Chelsea were held to a 1-1 draw in Sunday’s meeting at Boreham Wood, with Manchester City suffering a surprise home defeat to Reading.

Elsewhere, Liverpool thrashed Yeovil Town and Birmingham dispatched of Sunderland.

Arsenal had to Beth Mead to thank for their score draw against Chelsea, with the Gunners striker cancelling out Fran Kirby’s 31st minute opener before the break.

The two sides traded blows in the second-half but couldn’t break the deadlock once more and were forced to take a share of the spoils.

It’s a missed opportunity for the Londoners, as Chelsea could have gone five points clear of the Sky Blues in the WSL 1 table, while Arsenal could have made up the deficit to City to just three points.

Nick Cushing’s side went down 2-0 to Reading, courtesy of goals from Remi Allen and Kirsty Pearce, although they have a game in hand that could see them return to the summit.

Liverpool were in fine display at Yeovil, with goals from Laura Coombs, Gemma Bonner, Ash Hodson and Beth England putting Town to the sword.

Birmingham enjoyed a 2-0 win over Sunderland, with Ellen White opening the scoring mid-way through the first-half and Rachel Williams doubling their lead minutes later.
