The latest round of WSL results is the last before the February international break, which will see the first edition of the pre-Euro 2022 Arnold Clark Cup.

There was a titanic clash between Chelsea and Arsenal on Friday night, followed by a Manchester derby on Sunday and important wins for Tottenham, Brighton, Aston Villa and Leicester.

Read on to see who made the cut for 90min's WSL team of the week...


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Hannah Hampton (GK) - Aston Villa: Two important saves against Everton preserved her team's clean sheet and provided the foundations for a win.

Jess Carter (RB) - Chelsea: Another impressive performance on the right of a flat back four. Helped keep Arsenal at bay.

Ashleigh Plumptre (CB) - Leicester: A goal and a clean sheet marked a big day for the defender in her team's biggest ever WSL win.

Alex Greenwood (CB) - Man City: In control in the Manchester derby. Excellent on the ball and always defensively strong.

Ashleigh Neville (LB) - Tottenham: Two goals in two weeks for the full-back as Spurs won again to rise back into the WSL top three.


2. Midfielders

Kim Little (CM) - Arsenal: Accurately sprayed the ball all over the pitch for the Gunners against Chelsea and did her share of defensive duty.

Jill Scott (CM) - Aston Villa: Proving to be irrepressible in the WSL following her January loan. An acrobatic assist was a standout moment.

Megan Connolly (CM) - Brighton: Saw loads of the ball for the Seagulls against a hitherto very impressive Reading and registered an assist.


3. Forwards

Alisha Lehmann (RF) - Aston Villa: Came away from her team's win with an assist to her name but also saw other chances.

Kayleigh Green (ST) - Brighton: Her two goals underpinned Brighton's big win to inflict Reading's first defeat since the early weeks of the season.

Natasha Flint (LF) - Leicester: Played in a central role for the Foxes but accommodated here in a wider role following a fine showing. Scored the Foxes' opener, played a role in the third and was generally a real nuisance.
