Arsenal moved eight points clear at the top of the Women's Premier League with a 4-1 midweek win against struggling Nottingham Forest.

The Gunners now need five points from their remaining four matches to clinch a seventh successive league title.

Arsenal maintained their 100% home record with a comfortable victory over the Premier League's bottom but one side.

Prolific scorer Kim Little took her season's league and cup goal tally to 41 with the 12th minute opener.

Little's Scotland team-mates Julie Fleeting and Jennifer Beattie then put the result beyond doubt with further goals either side of half-time.

Gemma Davison completed the Arsenal scoring in the 84th minute before Beth Bailey hit a consolation goal four minutes into stoppage time.
