Arsenal took a giant step towards another Premier League title with a 3-0 victory against Charlton Athletic on Thursday night.

Vic Akers' side were kept at bay in the first half but finally made the breakthrough when Lianne Sanderson netted 11 minutes after the break.

Scotland captain Julie Fleeting gave the champions a two-goal cushion with 15 minutes left and captain Jayne Ludlow added a third in stoppage time.

Arsenal are now 11 points clear of Charlton at the top of the Premier League, although the champions have played two games more than their London rivals.
