Arsenal beat Birmingham City 6-2 to move five points clear at the top of the Women's Premier League.

The scoreline belied a hard-fought contest as Arsenal incredibly scored three goals in stoppage time to wrap up victory.

The Gunners took a 15th-minute lead through Jayne Ludlow, but Becky Hall equalised immediately after the interval.

And after Gemma Davison had restored the home side's advantage in the 48th minute, Amy McCann brought the scores level for a second time just before the hour.

Two minutes later Julie Fleeting nudged the Gunners back in front, but Blues continued to battle until their resolve was finally broken in a long period of time added on.

Fleeting hit her second goal to effectively kill off the visitors, but for good measure Kim Little and Davison also found the net.
