Republic of Ireland captain Katie McCabe found the net for Arsenal as they went top of the Women's Super League with a 5-0 home win over Manchester City.

McCabe scored the Gunners' third on the hour mark after Vivianne Miedema and Kim Little had scored first-half goals.

Little added another and Leah Williamson scored a fifth in injury time as Arsenal made it three wins from three to go top of the table above Tottenham on goal difference.

Reigning champions Chelsea laid down a marker with a thumping 6-1 victory over previously unbeaten Manchester United.

Fran Kirby opened the scoring inside two minutes with her 50th Super League goal, and Chelsea were three up at half-time.

Pernille Harder produced a brilliant solo run to double the lead before Sam Kerr tapped home a third.

Alessia Russio gave United hope with a deflected shot shortly after half-time but goals from Kerr, Drew Spence and Jessie Fleming made this emphatically Chelsea’s day.

Having been stunned by Arsenal in their opening match, this was a performance to show that Emma Hayes’ side are firmly back on track.
