? Manchester City extended their lead over Arsenal at the top of the Women's Super League to five points on Wednesday night after narrowly prevailing in a seven-goal thriller against Reading.

City actually went a goal down in the opening stages when Brooke Chaplen scored for Reading early on.

Third place Chelsea moved one point behind Arsenal as a result of the win, having played three games more, and are six points adrift of leaders City.

But a first half-hat-trick from England star Nikita Parris plus a goal soon after the interval from Demi Stokes put the Sky Blues 4-1 up and on course for an easy win.

Arsenal will have a chance to eat into that five point lead when they host Bristol City on Thursday night in one of their three games in hand.

A penalty from veteran Fara Williams on the hour mark reduced the deficit, with Kirsty Pearce then setting up a nervous final moments after pulling another back for Reading late on.

Also on Wednesday, bottom club Yeovil earned a rare point by holding Brighton to a 1-1 draw.
