Brighton and Hove Albion 0-4 Arsenal

Arsenal moved back into the Champions League qualification places at the expense of Manchester City after what turned out to be a comfortable win in Crawley over Brighton and Hove Albion last night.

Jonas Eidevall’s side built an early two-goal lead within the opening ten minutes thanks to a brace from Stina Blackstenius. The Swedish international also saw a potential hat-trick-clinching goal chalked off for offside which replays showed to be an incorrect decision.

With six minutes to go before the break, Frida Maanum headed home to make it 3-0 and there was still time before the end of the half for Victoria Pelova to get on the scoresheet.

Arsenal had further positives in the return to action of Australian international Caitlin Foord with 25 minutes remaining. The Gunners are third with a game in hand on both Manchester City immediately below them and leaders Manchester United who are six points ahead of them.

Chelsea’s 6-0 thrashing of Leicester City last night moves the defending champions to within a point of United with a game in hand still, which will be played at West Ham United next Wednesday.
