    See you all very soon.

  2. FULL-TIME

    Arsenal Women 4-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    They had to come form 1-0 down but it's nine wins from nine for Arsenal, who maintain their 100% record in the WSL this season.

    4-1 the full-time score for the Gunners.

  3. HITS THE WOODWORK

    Arsenal Women 4-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Almost Arsenal's fifth goal and Dominique Bloodworth's second of the game.

    Far post corner by Beth Mead finds Bloodworth's head and it then bounces off the head of Sophie Perry on the Brighton line and on to the crossbar.

    Two minutes added on at the end of the 90.

  4. SUBSTITUTION

    Arsenal Women 4-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Last change for Arsenal as Vivianne Miedema comes off for Ruby Grant.

    Her chances of beating the WSL season scoring record will have to wait for another week.

  5. SUBSTITUTION

    Arsenal Women 4-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Kayleigh Green comes off for Brighton to be replaced by Jodie Brett for these closing stages.

  6. SUBSTITUTION

    Arsenal Women 4-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Two changes for Arsenal as they send on youngster Paige Bailey-Gayle in midfield for Emma Mitchell.

    Ava Kuyken also replaces Daniëlle van de Donk.

  7. GOAL: Arsenal Women 4-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Beth Mead

    And that is the icing on the Arsenal cake!

    A great finish from Beth Mead for their fourth goal as she curls a right-foot effort from inside the penalty area over the head of Marie Hourihan and into the top right-hand corner.

    Sublime.

  8. Post update

    Arsenal Women 3-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Still pushing strong in this one Brighton as they force a few free-kicks deep inside Arsenal's half.

    Clearly trying to pick out Ini Umotong's aerial prowess and give Arsenal something to think about.

  9. Post update

    Arsenal Women 3-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Great cross from the right from Brighton's Ellie Brazil picks out Ini Umotong at the back post.

    Umotong nearly gets her second of the afternoon with a glancing header but it creeps just wide of the left post.

    Still a threat up top for the Seagulls in this one.

  10. Post update

    Arsenal Women 3-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Laura Bassett

    England defender on BBC Sport

    "It's a matter of time before we see a fourth goal from Arsenal to kill the game off.

    "But they're having to be very patient as Brighton have a solid structure."

  11. Post update

    Arsenal Women 3-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Nearly a second goal for Vivianne Miedema as Arsenal take a quick free-kick that catches Victoria Williams out.

    Miedema's strike palmed away once more by Marie Hourihan in Brighton's goal.

    Vivianne Miedema
  12. Post update

    Arsenal Women 3-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Arsenal looking pretty comfortable here despite it still being 3-1.

    It looks more a case of when rather than if they'll get a fourth goal as Beth Mead slides a ball into Lia Walti.

    Her low strike just fizzes wide of the right post. Last 20 minutes on the way.

  13. Post update

    Arsenal Women 3-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    A rare foray into Arsenal's half for Brighton as they try to dink a free-kick in to the box, but Sari van Veenendaal can easily mop that up.

    Hope Powell's side in need of something special here.

  15. Post update

    Arsenal Women 3-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Brighton being a bit too over-elaborate with trying to pas their way out of defence.

    Balls over the top towards Ini Umotong worked a treat in the first half.

  16. Post update

    Arsenal Women 3-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Brighton trying to keep things flowing between midfield and attack as they look for a sniff of a way back into this game.

    Not quite clicking though with balls up towards Ini Umotong.

  17. Post update

    Arsenal Women 3-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Looks like England head coach Phil Neville's doing a bit of ground-hopping this afternoon.

    He's vacated his seat in the stands at this match to, we're told, head to Wycombe's Adams Park and watch Reading's Fara Williams in action against Everton.

    That game starts at 14:00 GMT. Hope the traffic on the M25 and M40 is kind to Phil!

  18. Post update

    Arsenal Women 3-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Beth Mead loves the chance to cut in and run with the ball.

    She nearly delivers a lovely fourth goal for Arsenal there with a shot on her left foot that had Marie Hourihan stretching across goal, but it sails just wide of the left post.

  19. Post update

    Arsenal Women 3-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Ball nearly falls at the feet of Danielle van de Donk for her second goal as it pings around the Brighton area a bit.

    Marie Hourihan dives on it though to snuff out any hint of another Arsenal goal.

  20. Post update

    Arsenal Women 3-1 Brighton & Hove Albion Women

    Dominique Bloodworth has a free-kick for Arsenal which hits the wall and rolls into Hourihan's arms.

    The Gunners have started the second half as they ended the first with lots of pressure and possession.
