Arsenal's unbeaten run came to an end with a 2-1 defeat away to Chelsea.

Illness and injury allowed some Arsenal players a debut in a tight fixture.

It was goalless at the break but in the hour mark Chelsea took the lead. With 10 minutes remaining Naomi Cole grabbed the equaliser but Chelsea scored the winner five minutes from time.
