Republic of Ireland's Katie McCabe featured for Arsenal as they hammered the reigning champions Chelsea to maintain their lead at the top of the Women's Super League (WSL) table.

Arsenal maintained their 100% start to the WSL season with a 5-0 win over Chelsea, the Blues' first defeat in the league since May 2017.

McCabe was sprung from the Arsenal bench in the 64th minute of the tie, while her Ireland teammate Louise Quinn was on the bench as Kim Little (2), Vivianne Miedema (2), and Jordan Nobbs provided the goals for their win.

Meanwhile, Ireland's Niamh Fahey was in Liverpool's starting XI for their 2-1 win over struggling Yeovil Town.

Kristy Linnett gave Liverpool the lead in the first half and despite Yeovil finding an equaliser through Annie Heatherson, Fahey's side came out on top after a Jess Clarke goal secured their victory.

Liverpool are in sixth place on the table, one point ahead of Bristol City.

Goalkeeper Marie Hourihan was between the sticks for Brighton, who played out a 3-3 draw against Everton to claim their first point of the Women's Super League season.

Neither side had scored a goal prior to their meeting on Sunday and Brighton were first on target after just three minutes through through Danielle Buet.

Everton struck back twice to take the lead heading into the half-time break and a Chloe Kelly goal on 70 minutes appeared to put Everton's win beyond doubt.

But Brighton responded through a brace a goals from substitute Ellie Brazil, daughter of Nottingham Forest academy manager Gary, to ensure a share of the points at the end.
