  1. Goodbye

    Arsenal 1-3 Liverpool

    That's it from the Women's Super League. Liverpool have the win but it's Chelsea who are sitting five points clear at the top of the table at the mid-way point of the season. Many thanks for your company as well as your tweets and messages. Until next time...

  2. Liverpool reaction

    Arsenal 1-3 Liverpool

    Liverpool manager Matt Beard on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra: "I'm pleased with the performance - we could have gone 3-0 up. We showed great character, Arsenal caused us problems in the second half - they're a good side. 

    "We dug deep defensively and did enough to win it. We didn't put Fara Williams under any pressure to play. She just wants to play football - it was a fantastic strike. I thought they should have had a penalty. But I felt we should have had one in the first half. So swings and roundabouts.

    "We're taking one game at a time. There's no pressure on us because Chelsea won again. It'll be a good second half of the season. We'll regroup and focus for Notts County next week."

  4. Arsenal reaction

    Arsenal 1-3 Liverpool

    Arsenal boss Pedro Martinez Losa on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra: "We started the game not at our best level and Liverpool did well. Coming back from 2-0 is difficult. 

    "We did our best in the second half and had chances to tie the game. It looks like we should have had a penalty but I'd prefer to double-check first. It was a critical moment. If we do better, then we don't need to talk about the referee. We need to start with better intensity."

  6. 'Martinez got it wrong today'

    Arsenal 1-3 Liverpool

    Lindsay Johnson

    Everton defender on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Arsenal boss Pedro Martinez Losa has got a lot of work to do - he's got an exceptional squad. They're missing Jordan Nobbs, who pulls the strings in midfield. They've got the players, it's just a case of getting the right mould. I think today Martinez got it wrong. They're five points off top. Somebody needs to take points off Chelsea to let other teams in again, but at the moment nobody seems able to do that.

  7. Next for Liverpool?

    Arsenal 1-3 Liverpool

    Will this result kick-start Liverpool's season? We won't have long to find out. Their next match is at home to Notts County on 18 July.

  8. Get Involved

    Martin Jones on Facebook:  I'd love to see the women's game take off, but in all honesty, they still have a lot of problems to overcome. It doesn't help that there is only eight teams in the top division, that is not very impressive. I appreciate that it costs a lot to run a top flight team, and financial problems mean there are not many teams that can compete at the top level. But surely they can do better than eight! I personally would allow any team from the second division that wants promotion to have it immediately, to form a more viable and attractive league.

    Everton defender on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Overall it was entertaining game. Liverpool deserved the win, they did most of their work in the first half and defended after the break. Dan Carter was isolated up front for Arsenal. Liverpool came out of the blocks flying. Arsenal were taken by surprise. For the first match back after the World Cup it's been a good game.

    Liverpool have obviously worked on some things during the break. All they needed to do was grind out the win and they did it.

  11. Post update

    Arsenal 1-3 Liverpool

    That was a great advert for the FA Women's Super League. Two terrific finishes by Liverpool, Fara Williams's effort in particular had Arsenal fans out of their seats applauding.

    Terrific by Liverpool. Much to ponder for Arsenal manager Pedro Martinez Losa.

  13. Post update

    This result will not go unnoticed. Many had written off Liverpool's chances of a third successive title after an inconsistent first half of the season. This result suggests they are still a force to be reckoned with.

    Everton defender on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Arsenal were pushing all their players forward and it takes one second, it was a poor header from one of their defenders. To be fair, Asisat Oshoala still had to beat Emma Byrne and it was a great finish to lob her. That looks like game over.

    It's fine margins. Arsenal got their goal but then stopped getting the ball forward to their strikers who were causing all kinds of problems.

  16. GOAL

    Arsenal 1-3 Liverpool - Asisat Oshoala

    All over. Another delightful Liverpool goal, Natasha Dowie's long ball forward is headed into Asisat Oshoala's path by Arsenal's Marta Corredera and the Liverpool forward lobs the keeper. Lovely finish.

    Chelsea players and fans will be hoping Liverpool can hang on. If they do, the Blues will have a five-point lead at the top of the table.

    For all Arsenal's attacking intent, their lack of composure at the crucial moment looks set to cost them. That and their sloppy start.

    Liverpool got lucky. I’ve seen Satara Murray concede a penalty this season already. She let Dan Carter get in front of her there. If I was Arsenal I’d be very disappointed with that. Carter has tried to stay on her feet. I've seen them given. As a defender I'd be screaming it isn't, but as an attacker I would have been asking for a penalty.

  25. Post update

    Arsenal 1-2 Liverpool

    Moments before Chioma Ubogagu's chance, Danielle Carter lost her footing under a challenge by Satara Murray. Arsenal wanted a penalty. The referee was not interested.

  26. CLOSE!

    Arsenal 1-2 Liverpool

    Frantic stuff inside the last 20 minutes.

    Arsenal are throwing bodies forward and Chioma Ubogagu is unmarked inside the Liverpool area. She lines up a shot and... fires straight at Libby Stout.

    Big chance for Arsenal.

    Jonny Honz Caunt: Go to a game, no probably not, but I'd definitely watch any televised games now.

    Martin Dawkins: Probably. The World Cup may have raised the profile of women's football but you have to work hard to encourage people to participate, find qualified coaches who understand women's football. If you just leave new players/parents to make an effort without appropriate and sustained encouragement, coaching and support, nothing will happen

  29. YELLOW CARD

    Arsenal 1-2 Liverpool

    Game on. Liverpool were showing signs of trying to run down the clock before Arsenal's goal but they can't sit back now.

    This is a crucial stage of the game. Liverpool's Asisat Oshoala is shown a yellow card for a late challenge.

    That’s a great ball by Jemma Rose and Natalia can score from anywhere. It’s a great finish. She just lobbed the keeper Libby Stout, who will be disappointed. Asisat Oshoala could have kept the ball a bit better – she gave it to Jemma Rose, who played it in.

  31. GOAL

    Arsenal 1-2 Liverpool - Natalia Pablos

    Natalia

    Oh my...what a beautiful finish by Natalia Pablos, the Spanish forward volleying Jemma Rose's long punt into the Liverpool box over the keeper.

    Superb technique from the Arsenal player and the hosts are right back in this.

  32. YELLOW CARD

    Arsenal 0-2 Liverpool

    There's another half an hour remaining but evidence Liverpool are trying to run down the clock already as keeper Libby Stout is booked for time wasting.

  33. Post update

    Arsenal 0-2 Liverpool

    Loads of possession by Arsenal but they can't do anything with it. The crowd continues to scream encouragement each time they go forward but frustration is growing - both on and off the pitch.

  34. Post update

    So nearly a spectacular own goal by Marta Corredera as the Arsenal forward makes a total hash of trying to clear Asisat Oshoala's overhead kick.

    Ben Phillips:  I've watched three England women's matches at Ewood. All three suffered from a lack of atmosphere and quality. It can never be considered mainstream like men's football because it's just not as good.

    Chris Ward:  Now so many players are full-time, you can see the level of concentration and fitness is maintained for the whole 90 minutes. The WSL is competitive and entertaining. The only way is up.

    Dave Watkins:  Here is my honest opinion - any true fan of the game of football, will show an interest in the game at any level, from pro to semi-pro to the women's league. A good game is a good game. I wish people would stop trying to compare the men and women's games, both different and both can be enjoyed in different ways. If the women's game really does take off and it encourages more young people to get out and play, that can only be a good thing... and as such, anyone with an interest in football, should be supporting the women's game still.

  36. Post update

    Arsenal 0-2 Liverpool

    End to end now.

    Arsenal are throwing players forward and that is leaving big holes at the back.

    Asisat Oshoala has a great chance to break into the penalty area, but Arsenal's defence manages to scramble the ball away.

    The hosts respond through substitute Natalia Pablos, whose curling attempt from outside the area rattles an advertising board.

  37. Post update

    Lindsay Johnson

    Everton defender on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Arsenal have shown their intentions from the off there. A few of their players went forward there, whereas Dan Carter was isolated in the first half. If they continue like that we’re in for  an exciting second half.

  38. Post update

    Arsenal 0-2 Liverpool

    Plenty of attacking intent from the Gunners at the start of the second half. Little end product.

  39. SUBSTITUTION

    Arsenal 0-2 Liverpool

    Arsenal need to do something drastically to get back into this and boss Pedro Martinez Losa hopes two changes at the start of the second half will help.

    Midfielder Jade Bailey is replaced by forward Natalia Pablos, while striker Chioma Ubogagu is on for midfielder Carla Humphrey.

    Liverpool have made one change, New Zealand forward Rosie White is on for Katrin Omarsdottir.  

  40. KICK-OFF

    Arsenal 0-2 Liverpool

    We're back under way at Boreham Wood. Three changes at the start of the second half..

  41. Leaders Chelsea go five points clear

    Chelsea 4-1 Bristol Academy

    Chelsea Ladies proved too strong for Bristol Academy as they opened up a five-point lead at the top of the table.

    First-half goals from Gilly Flaherty and Gemma Davison put the unbeaten home side in command.

    Bristol debutant Jade Boho-Sayo pulled one back after the break before Ji So-yun restored the Blues' two-goal lead from the penalty spot.

    Millie Farrow added a fourth late on as Chelsea won comfortably in front of a lively post-World Cup crowd of 1,233.

  42. Duggan earns City win

    Manchester City 1-0 Birmingham City

    Toni Duggan'sgoal proved enough toearn Manchester Cityall three points against Birmingham. Duggan pounced in the 55th minute after great play by Jill Scott.

  43. Bouquets but no points

    Sunderland 2 Notts County 1

    Notts County had five players in England's World Cup squad and they were given a warm reception before their match at Sunderland.

    But Beth Mead'sstunning injury-time strike earned the hosts all three points. Hayley Sharphad given them an early lead before County hit back throughJess Clarke.

    They'll be loving this scoreline at Chelsea. The Super League leaders will remain five points clear at the top of the table unless Arsenal score two goals in the second half.

    Liverpool started this game in sixth position. If the score stays the same they'll move above Manchester City into fifth spot.

    It could be 2-2. Arsenal grew into the game. They had plenty of opportunities to get back into the game, they’ll be disappointed. You can never write Arsenal off. Liverpool seemed happy to be 2-0 up and were just trying to get to half-time. They started well but were dropping off in the last 10 minutes.

  47. HALF-TIME

    Arsenal 0-2 Liverpool

    The half ends with Liverpool keeper Libby Stout keeping out Carla Humphrey's thumping effort from 10 yards.

    It's all smiles for the visitors as they head for the dressing room. Arsenal have it all to do.

    Liverpool are not playing the same as last season - they're struggling. They need the three points to gather ground on teams above them. But the win is also a necessity for Arsenal as Chelsea could run away with it. It's still early doors, there's lots of games to play.

    Arsenal and Liverpool are the two most successful clubs in Super League One history, both winning the title two times. The Gunners won the first two titles in 2011 and 2012, with Liverpool champions the last two years.

    But the Reds have work to do if they are to make it three titles in a row.

    They've had croissants with the Duke of Cambridge. Sipped coffee with Prime Minister David Cameron. And there was even time to visit Centre Court at Wimbledon.

    But less than a week after returning from the Women's World Cup having helped secure England a highly creditable third-placed finish in Canada, it is back to club action for the likes of Arsenal's Casey Stoney and Liverpool's Fara Williams.

    A few days after appearing in the Lionesses' victory over Germany, Stoney and Williams are on opposite sides as the FA Women's Super League's two most successful teams go head-to-head at Boreham Wood.
