    Highlights of the Women's Super League match between Arsenal and Reading

    Arsenal increased their lead at the top of the Women's Super League to five points with a 4-0 victory over Reading.

    Vivianne Miedema scored the opening goal in the 22nd minute, slotting the ball into the back of the net after a clever one-two with Stina Blackstenius.

    The goal means Miedema has now found the net in seven successive matches against Reading - a WSL record - and she has also drawn level with Chelsea's Sam Kerr on nine league goals for the season.

    Only two minutes later, Katie McCabe added Arsenal's second after the visitors were unable to clear following a probing ball forward down the left from the Gunners.

    Less than 10 minutes later Arsenal had their third when Leah Williamson timed her jump well to head home from a Steph Catley cross.

    In the 71st minute, Arsenal capped off their comfortable victory when Blackenstenius and Miedema linked up again, but it was the Swedish player who had the final touch to put the ball past Rhiannon Stewart in the Reading goal.
