Manchester City Women's Jane Ross celebrates as they take the lead against Arsenal Ladies

Manchester City Women moved to the top of the WSL 1 table as they beat an Arsenal Ladies team who played for more than 75 minutes with 10 players.

Arsenal hit the bar from Fara Williams' early free-kick, but Jemma Rose was sent off for a poor challenge on Nikita Parris after just 13 minutes.

City took the lead after the break when Toni Duggan crossed to the onrushing Jane Ross, who headed home.

Duggan sealed victory with a penalty after Dominique Janssen fouled Parris.
