The WSL had been paused for three weeks prior to the action resuming on Saturday and Sunday, with the February international break and FA Cup briefly taking over.

There were big wins for Manchester United and Arsenal, but also important results for Brighton and Reading to picks the bones out of.

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


1. Goalkeeper & defenders

Megan Walsh (GK) - Brighton: A regular in this team of the week this season. Made a key double save that preserved the clean sheet and win.

Maya Le Tissier (RB) - Brighton: A clean sheet and the winning goal summed up a top all-round performance from the Seagulls right-back.

Leah Williamson (CB) - Arsenal: Two goals conceded in Arsenal's 4-2 win is a blot, but she was so good on the ball throughout.

Gemma Evans (CB) - Reading: Contributed to an important Royals clean sheet, stopping a recent slump that had threatened to set in.

Steph Catley (LB) - Arsenal: Managed a pair of assists and an almost perfect passing record in her team's win.

2. Midfielders

Katie Zelem (CM) - Man Utd: Remarkably scored from a corner for the second game in a row and then had the intelligence to exploit the weakness to do the exact same thing again.

Lia Walti (CM) - Arsenal: Controlled things with her passing. Also had the awareness to cover for her teammates in open play.

Ella Toone (AM) - Man Utd: Was at the centre of everything good about her team. Created the opening for the first goal and assisted the second.

3. Forwards

Beth Mead (RW) - Arsenal: Got in on the act to score the Gunners' third goal - her sixth in the WSL this season.

Alessia Russo (ST) - Man Utd: Returned to a central role. Scored a well-placed header as well forming a major part of her team's link-up play.

Lucy Quinn (LW) - Birmingham: Worked really hard for the Blues to make it a game against Arsenal and scored a late goal to scare the league leaders.
