Arsenal continued their perfect start to the Women's Super League season with a 4-0 win at Bristol City on Sunday.

First-half goals from England international Jordan Nobbs and Vivianne Miedema set up a sixth straight win.

Holland striker Miedema claimed her 11th goal of the season two minutes from time and Danielle van de Donk fired home the fourth in stoppage time.

New Liverpool boss Vicky Jepson lost her first official match in charge as Chelsea won 1-0 at Kingsmeadow.

Magda Eriksson secured a second win of the season for the reigning WSL champions with a 27th-minute overhead kick.

Jepson took charge after being officially appointed as manager on Friday, having done the job since the departure of Neil Redfearn in September, but Chelsea leapfrogged them into fourth.

Brighton claimed their first top-flight scalp by beating Yeovil 2-1 in the battle of the bottom two.

Jodie Brett and Victoria Williams gave Brighton breathing space at the break, and Yeovil remain pointless after six games despite Ellie Mason's second-half effort.
