Arsenal’s Jordan Nobbs scored her first goal since returning from a serious knee injury as Arsenal eased to a 4-0 win against Brighton in the Women’s Super League on Sunday.

The England midfielder, who missed the summer’s World Cup as a result, scored the Gunners’ fourth goal of the afternoon to maintain their flawless start to the season as they lie top of the league on goal difference.

Kim Little struck first for the Gunners after just nine minutes, with Vivianne Miedema adding a second before half-time. Danielle Van De Donk netted a third before Nobbs rounded off the scoring with 20 minutes remaining.

Meanwhile, Manchester City maintained their winning league start with a 1-0 win over Everton.

England captain Steph Houghton’s seventh-minute free-kick was the difference at Haig Avenue.

Guro Reiten struck twice in the first 10 minutes for Chelsea as they stormed to a 4-0 victory at Bristol City.

The Norwegian midfielder slotted home from six yards and then scored a volley before Ji So-Yun hit her side’s third.

Sophie Ingle tapped home to wrap up the win for third-placed Chelsea while Bristol City remain in 10th and without a win.

At the London Stadium, 24,790 supporters saw strikes from Rianna Dean and Lucy Quinn secure a 2-0 triumph for Tottenham over West Ham.

Dean headed Spurs into the lead in the 36th minute before Quinn, on her birthday, sealed the win just before full-time.
