Manchester United went top of England's Women's Super League thanks to a surprise 1-0 win over Arsenal on Sunday, with Ellen Toone scoring the winner in the 83rd minute.

With Arsenal's potent attack struggling for once, Jess Sigsworth found Toone on the edge of the area, and she swept the ball home to bring Arsenal's unbeaten start to the campaign to an end and send her side top with 16 points after six games, with Arsenal a point behind.

Ireland's Katie McCabe started at left back for Arsenal, playing the full match.

Earlier in the afternoon striker Beth England scored twice in three minutes as Chelsea climbed to third in the table on 13 points following a comfortable 4-0 win over Everton.

Aston Villa grabbed their first win of the season with a 2-0 victory away to Brighton and Hove Albion, who had Irish midfield duo Denise O'Sullivan and Megan Connolly in their starting team, while fellow Ireland international Rianna Jarrett came on as a substitute.

West Ham United also won away with Emily van Egmond scoring in the 73rd minute to secure a 2-1 victory over Birmingham City.

United host Manchester City next week in the Manchester derby, while Chelsea take on Arsenal in London and the bottom two sides Bristol and Tottenham Hotspur also face off.
