Arsenal strolled to a second consecutive 3-0 win over Birmingham, inching themselves closer to becoming league Champions.

Lianne Sanderson, who grabbed a brace in the midweek rubber with the Blues, bought her season's tally to 40 with a tidy finish 15 minutes in. Fellow England international Kelly Smith then rifled home a stunning long-range effort, before former Birmingham player Karen Carney completed the scoring before the interval.

With the match won, the Gunners duly eased off and played out the second half in a confident, classy manner.
