Maren Mjelde’s first-half penalty was her second goal of the season

Maren Mjelde’s controversial first-half penalty set reigning Women’s Super League champions Chelsea on their way to victory in a lively tussle with last season’s runners-up Manchester City.

Mjelde slotted home after City’s Ellen White was penalised for handball, although the ball struck Demi Stokes.

But fortunate as their opener was, Chelsea dominated the second half.

Sam Kerr tapped in a second and, after Chloe Kelly’s penalty gave City hope, Kirby’s composed finish made it 3-1.

England striker Kirby, playing wide on the right, was the standout performer in a stylish win that extends Chelsea’s unbeaten WSL run to 25 games and takes them up to third in the table after four games.

A thrilling first league meeting between the two sides this season went the same way as Chelsea’s 2-0 Community Shield success in August.

Women’s Super League: Tottenham Hotspur 0-1 Manchester United

Tobin Heath helped Manchester United go top of the Women’s Super League, setting Millie Turner up for the winner against Tottenham Hotspur.

Turner met a finely placed second-half corner from the World Cup-winning USA international to seal victory.

Heath had earlier combined with USA team-mate Christen Press for United’s first chance, but was denied by Becky Spencer, who also kept out Katie Zelem.

Rosella Ayane squandered what was Spurs’ best opportunity early on.

Ayane pounced on a stray United pass in defence, but could only bobble a shot harmlessly wide.

With their own two-time World Cup-winner in Alex Morgan again not included in the squad as she works to regain fitness following the birth of her daughter in May, Spurs lacked a serious attacking threat as they looked for their first WSL win of the season.

They did, however, make United work hard for the win, with defender Ashleigh Neville

Manchester City’s Sam Mewis sinks Arsenal in Women’s FA Cup semi-final

Before their Women’s FA Cup semi-final, Arsenal manager Joe Montemurro had said that the team that found its rhythm “as quickly as possible” and was “able to control and dictate” would be most likely to progress.

Unfortunately for the 51-year-old, it was City, with US World Cup winner Sam Mewis at the hustling centre of a press that would earn her new team a Wembley final against Everton on 1 November. Midfielder Mewis’s winner, her first goal in England, came just minutes after Jordan Nobbs had levelled following defender Steph Houghton’s free-kick opener for City.

Arsenal’s attack had been the most potent since football resumed, with a staggering 19 goals scored in their opening three fixtures. City’s start had been less eye-catching, with a 0-0 draw at home to Brighton and
