  1. Arsenal win title in style


    That's it from the Amex, as Arsenal emphatically clinch the WSL title in front of a record crowd by winning 4-0 at Brighton - hardly a bad way to win your first title in seven years.

    It was never really in doubt this afternoon, Vivianne Miedema scoring early, Katie McCabe adding a second before the break and then Beth Mead and Danielle Van de Donk getting on the scoresheet after half-time.

    So it's the Gunners who'll be the team to beat in the WSL next season. But could they be up against the European champions? Chelsea's Champions League semi-final second leg with Lyon is under way and you can follow the live text commentary here.

    Thanks for joining us!

  2. The Women's FA Cup final

    Coming up next Saturday

    Next Saturday will see one of the biggest events on the women's football calendar brought to you live across the BBC.

  3. Post update


    To remind you, a new record crowd for the WSL era has watched this game at the Amex Stadium today.

  4. 'Joe made us believe'

    England forward Beth Mead and Arsenal's star striker Vivienne Miedema have been speaking to BT Sport, and unsurprisingly they're pretty happy.

    "It's hard to describe right now but it's been a long time coming - everyone's ecstatic. Joe says we've had a lot of ups and downs as a group with injuries and things like that so enjoy the moment." said Mead, who scored a stunning third goal.

    "It opened up for me, I hit it and luckily it went in! I can't say much more than that!"

    Miedema - who scored the opener - added: "I came to Arsenal to win the league but I don't think I've realised what we've done yet.

    "I'm happy we've done it and we've done it with a 4-0 win. Joe changed a lot when he came in so he has to take a lot of credit but more than anything he really made us believe in ourselves."

  5. Post update

    So Arsenal are the champions of England for the 15th time, and the third time in the WSL era. They first lifted the old top-flight title in the Women's Premier League in 1993, managed by the legendary Vic Akers, who would go on to guide them to a quadruple of trophies in 2007.

    But Joe Montemurro's masterminded their first title since 2012.

    Let's get a bit of reaction...

  6. Arsenal clinch the title

    FT: Brighton 0-4 Arsenal

    Samantha Miller

    QPR player on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    To win this league with a game to go, they deserve a lot of credit, with the quality we now have in the WSL.

    They can just enjoy the final game of the season now.


    FT: Brighton 0-4 Arsenal


    Utterly, utterly emphatic from Arsenal and they are the WSL champions.Vivienne Miedema's stunning 20-yard strike that went in off the bar sent them on their way, then she played in Katie McCabe before half-time and Beth Mead's 30-yard rocket made absolutely sure after the break. Danielle van de Donk added some extra gloss late on.What a way to do it!


    Brighton 0-4 Arsenal

    Danielle van de Donk almost has her second and Arsenal's fifth but Brighton keeper Marie Hourihan races out to smother her shot at the edge of the box.

    The Gunners aren't coasting yet. They want more goals!

  9. Post update

    Lyon fans

    Meanwhile, Chelsea and Lyon's Women's Champions League semi-final second leg is fast approaching.

    Should you wish, you can follow the build-up to that massive game, with live video and text, by clicking here.


    Brighton 0-4 Arsenal

    Albion are up in arms! Ini Umoting is hauled down in the box by Viktoria Schnaderbeck but the referee says no.

    I don't know how. Honestly. Baffled.

  13. GOAL: Brighton 0-4 Arsenal

    Danielle van de Donk (77 mins)

    It wasn't enough for Arsenal to just win the WSL title today, they obviously wanted to do it in real style too.

    Danielle van de Donk gets in on the act after (you guessed it) more superb play from Vivianne Miedema. Her right-wing cross is only half-cleared and scramble as they might, Albion just cannot hack the ball away.

    Van de Donk keeps her cool to calmy stroke the ball into the corner.

    This is a rout now.


    Brighton 0-3 Arsenal


    Just prior to that stunner from Beth Mead, the attendance was announced at the Amex.

    It's a WSL record of 5,265 - beating the previous mark of 5,052 in a match between Arsenal and Chelsea at Emirates Stadium in 2012.

    That crowd is around 10 times bigger than Albion's average gate when they play at Crawley Town's Broadfield Stadium. Superb.

  15. GOAL: Brighton 0-3 Arsenal

    Beth Mead (70 mins)

    Beth Mead has forged something of a reputation for spectacular goals and she is showing no signs of letting up. The England striker shows great control to gather a diagonal ball, cuts in from the left and gets a yard of space before rifling the ball into the top corner from 30 yards.

    Keeper. No chance.

    Arsenal - stick the champers on ice.

  16. Post update

    Brighton 0-2 Arsenal

    Arsenal have their first real sight of goal this half. Vivianne Miedema starts the move by collecting the ball deep in midfield and then getting it back a few passes later. Eventually it comes to Katie McCabe on the left side of the box but she takes too long to get her shot away and it's well blocked.

  17. Post update

    Brighton 0-2 Arsenal

    Danielle Buet shoots

    Albion have been superb since half-time but from an Arsenal perspective they've come through that spell unscathed are now just half-an-hour from being crowned champions.

    You have to go back to 2012 for the last time that happened, but that title was the last of nine straight years the Gunners finished top of the pile.

  18. CLOSE!

    Brighton 0-2 Arsenal

    Katie McCabe has just cut Aileen Whelan in half with a scything tackle - how the Arsenal player's avoided a booking I will never know.

    The resulting free-kick is then hit high into the box and after a half-clearance the ball is looped back in. It evades everyone and nearly creeps inside Sari van Veenendaal's far post but the Arsenal keeper scrambles across to deny Danielle Buet a goal.

  19. Post update

    Brighton 0-2 Arsenal

    Aileen Whelan

    Albion look more of a threat since the break. Aileen Whelan with a couple of give-and-go passes and then a nice floated pass to the back post.

    Unfortunately substitute Ellie Brazil can't make good enough contact and slashes her effort wide.

    Brighton boss Hope Powell will be delighted with this response.
