Former Arsenal Ladies midfielder Caroline Weir brought the Gunners' nine-match unbeaten run to an end with a late winner for Liverpool.

Fara Williams, who joined Arsenal from Liverpool this season, put the hosts ahead with a deflected shot looping over goalkeeper Siobhan Chamberlain.

Shanice Van de Sanden levelled for the Reds soon after, turning on the edge of the area before finding the top corner.

Both sides had chances before Weir won it with a free-kick from 20 yards.
