The FA WSL Champions League race matchday 6 : Arsenal stay put, City comes into Champions League place

Arsenal are staying at the top, while City are catching up and are only one point behind the leaders and could even be top of the League by Friday.

Arsenal emphatically dismissed Reading with another huge and surprising scoreline following their triumph at Chelsea. The Gunners have hit the ground running this season.

Birmingham got an excellent point at home holders to Chelsea with Berger saving a Carney penalty. A picky referee would have given a penalty retake and a yellow card as per the new FIFA rules, but it would have been really harsh, even if correct by the rulebook.

Man City recorded a 6-0 win at Brighton to wrestle  the second place from Birmingham’s hand and could even go top by Friday evening as they will be at home to Reading who have just lost 6-0 to Arsenal.

It is clearly a three horses race for two places as Liverpool in fourth position following their 1-0 away win at West Ham are already four points behind Birmingham City.

Results

Arsenal  6 Reading 0

Brighton 0 Man City 6

Birmingham 0 Chelsea  0

 

 

Table

 

 

Matchday 7 could see Manchester City at the top of the table for the first time this season as they play the early game on Friday evening at home to Reading. Arsenal will be away to surprise team Bristol and it will be a tough game against solid defensive Bristol side led by goalkeeper Sophie Baggaley.  Birmingham have the day off.

The chasing pack of Liverpool, Bristol Reading and Chelsea will hope to see at least one of  the top two drop points to get a chance to close the gap a little bit.
