    Arsenal remain second in the table as it stands, with Man City already leading in their 14:00 GMT kick-off against Brighton.

    But the Gunners will still have a game in hand.


    Reading 0-3 Arsenal

    And, with that, the whistle goes. Arsenal get back to winning ways and their title hopes remain in their own hands.

  4. GOAL: Reading 0-3 Arsenal

    Katie McCabe

    Wow! What a way to wrap up the points. Katie McCabe curls a cracker in to the corner with her left foot, from outside the area.

    It's a fine finish.

    Reading 0-2 Arsenal

    There'll be four minutes of stoppage time. Arsenal are almost there.

    Fara Williams' shot deflects wide for a corner... But is it too little, too late?

    Jade Bailey comes on for the hosts, replacing Brooke Chaplen in these closing stages.

    Jayne Ludlow

    Wales manager on BBC Sport

    The game has been scrappy with so many stops in it.

    Reading 0-2 Arsenal

    Arsenal are in cruise control now. We've got around seven minutes to go.

  11. GOAL: Reading 0-2 Arsenal

    Kim Little, pen

    Scotland's Kim Little - calm as you like - doubles the Gunners' lead from the spot.

    That should be job done for Arsenal.


    Reading 0-1 Arsenal

    Danielle van de Donk goes down under pressure from Reading's Jade Moore and the referee gives a penalty.

    Was there a slight nudge? Maybe. Reading protest. Moore is booked.

  13. CLOSE!

    Reading 0-1 Arsenal

    Beth Mead squares the ball across Reading's six-yard box - looking for the on-rushing Kim Little - but Royals defender Maz Pacheco does well to get a vital interception in.


    Reading 0-1 Arsenal

    Moments after Arsenal's Beth Mead is booked, Reading's Remi Allen is shown a yellow card, for kicking the ball away after conceding a soft free-kick.

    It's been a frustrating afternoon for the hosts so far.

    England's Nikita Parris has given Man City an early lead against Brighton from the penalty spot.

    That one got under way a few minutes ago.

    So Arsenal are no longer top of the league in the as-it-stands table.

  16. Post update

    Reading 0-1 Arsenal

    The Gunners' Beth Mead is almost in on goal, latching on to a long ball, but she's just offside.

  17. Post update

    Reading 0-1 Arsenal

    As things stand, Arsenal would return to the top of the table for an hour at least, with Chelsea and Man City's matches only just getting going.

    Reading would slip to sixth if Bristol City avoid defeat against Yeovil Town from 15:00 GMT.

  19. Post update

    Reading 0-1 Arsenal

    From a left-wing corner, Arsenal's Louise Quinn has a free header, but she guides it just over the bar. Chance.


    Reading 0-1 Arsenal

    Reading and Wales' Tash Harding is booked for bringing down Katrine Veje, down Arsenal's left flank.

    There is half an hour remaining at Adams Park.
