WSL: Chelsea come from behind to earn vital win over Tottenham as Man City ease Leicester win


Omen Super League leaders Chelsea came from behind at The Hive to claim a crucial 3-1 win over Tottenham.

Manchester City, meanwhile, won 4-0 against Leicester City.

Chelsea, who were a point clear of second-placed Arsenal, fell behind early thanks to a 15th-minute Sophie Ingle own goal before Guro Reiten equalized with a left-footed finish from a tight angle 12 minutes later.

Chelsea keeper Ann-Katrin Berger was sent off before the break for a challenge on Rachel Williams, but the champions managed to grab a second goal when Sam Kerr turned in a Jonna Andersson cross in the 71st minute, and Jessie Fleming added a late third.

First-half goals from Caroline Weir, Lauren Hemp and Julie Blakstad gave City a home win against Leicester, with Alex Greenwood adding a fourth from the spot to help in the rout.

City are third in the WSL standings on 38 points, five behind Arsenal, who travel to Everton later on Sunday. Aston Villa host Manchester United in the other late kick-off.

Earlier, Emma Snerle and Yui Hasegawa were on target as West Ham United cruised to a 2-1 victory over Reading, who earned late consolation through Faye Bryson. West Ham are sixth on 27 points, three ahead of eighth-placed Reading.
