Mead scores in Arsenal win over Everton as WSL returns

England international Beth Mead scored what proved to be the winner three minutes into first-half stoppage time to give Arsenal a 2-1 victory over Everton at home on Saturday as the Women's Super League got underway again after the winter break.

Caitlin Foord had given the Gunners the lead in the ninth minute but Everton striker Katja Snoeijs levelled for the visitors 15 minutes later, setting the scene for Mead to head the winner just before the break.

The win sees Arsenal move level on 25 points with league leaders and reigning champions Chelsea, with the Blues, who face Manchester United in Sunday's early kickoff, having played a game less than their London rivals.

Also on Sunday, Manchester City, who are third and three points behind the top two, take on Liverpool at home while West Ham meet Tottenham and Brighton face bottom side Bristol City.
