Manchester City maintained their unbeaten record and place at the top of the FA Women's Super League 1 with a 1-1 draw with Liverpool.

City conceded for the first time in the league this year as Rosie White put Liverpool ahead after four minutes. 


Manchester City 1-1 Liverpool
Notts County 2-1 Doncaster Rovers Belles
Arsenal 5-1 Sunderland
Aston Villa 1-1 London Bees
Durham 0-2 Yeovil Town
Bristol City 4-1 Oxford United
Watford 2-1 Everton

But Scotland international Jane Ross levelled on 66 minutes and it took some excellent work from Liverpool and England goalkeeper Siobhan Chamberlain to repel some late pressure from Nick Cushing’s side.

City's point takes them five points clear of Chelsea, who have two games in hand.

Bottom-placed Doncaster Rover Belles remain winless after new manager Emma Coates saw her side lose out 2-1 against Notts County.

Jess Sigworth’s effort against her former employers cancelled out an early Rachel Williams strike before England striker Ellen White chipped in the winner for County.

Katie Rowson was left ecstatic after bottom-placed FA WSL 2 side Watford claimed their first win of the season over Everton.

Watford fought back from 1-0 down after Claudia Walker’s early goal, but Ellie Mason struck a penalty and Charlotte Kerr knocked in the winner despite heavy Everton pressure.

Yeovil Town restored their three-point advantage at the top of FA WSL 2 after Sarah Wiltshire and Atlanta Primus both fired in second-half goals for a 2-0 win against Durham, while it took a Katie Wilkinson wonder-goal to cancel out Evdokia Popadinova’s first-half effort and ensure that Aston Villa emerged with a point in a 1-1 draw with London Bees
