A 5-1 win over Sunderland on Saturday saw Arsenal Ladies move up to third in the Premier League table.

Julie Fleeting and Kim Little each scored twice before Rachel Yankey added a fifth shortly before the hour mark.

The Black Cats had taken the lead through Natalie Gutteridge seven minutes in but Fleeting equalised from Gemma Davison's 23rd-minute cross.

Five minutes later Fleeting gave Arsenal the lead, this time heading home Little's cross.

The in-form Scot then bagged a goal herself seven minutes after the break and added another four minutes later to make it 23 goals in 14 appearances for the Gunners this season.

Rachel Yankey's free-kick completed the victory and Tony Gervaise's side are now just one point behind league-leaders Chelsea with two games in hand.
