West Ham shock Man City with 2-0 WSL win, Spurs up to second

MANCHESTER, England :West Ham United pulled off a shock 2-0 win at Manchester City to climb to fifth in the Women's Super League table on Sunday, while Tottenham Hotspur went second with a 2-0 win away to newcomers Leicester City.

West Ham's Dagny Brynjarsdottir broke the deadlock with a header six minutes before halftime and, though City's Ellen White had a goal ruled out for offside, the Hammers defended bravely before Yui Hasegawa added a second in stoppage time to seal the win.

Tottenham cruised to their fourth straight victory thanks to Rachel Williams and Angela Addison, while Everton were also winners away from home as they notched up a 3-0 scoreline against Reading, with all the goals coming in the first half.

Birmingham City's poor run of form at home continued in Sunday's late kickoff as they lost 2-0 versus Manchester United to record their fourth defeat in four games.

Leah Galton rifled in Hannah Blundell's pull-back to put the visitors in front after 27 minutes and Blundell got another assist by setting up Ella Toone for a second in the 80th. The Blues have failed to win any of their last 17 home league games.

Arsenal top the table on 12 points with Spurs second on goal difference and Chelsea third ahead of Manchester United who also have nine points. Birmingham and Leicester are above bottom side Reading on goal difference, with all of the trio on zero points.
