Arsenal clinched a seventh successive Women's Premier League title with a revenge win against Everton, who beat the Gunners in Monday's FA Cup final.

Right-winger Gemma Davison scored twice in a 4-2 Arsenal success that meant the Toffees dropped to fourth in the table.

The Gunners needed only one point to secure the title but took all three to complete a league double over the team who beat them in the League Cup as well as the FA Cup final.

Left-winger Rachel Yankey gave the home side a 31st-minute lead then crossed for Davison to double the lead from 12 yards six minutes before half-time.

Everton fought back after the break, captain Fara Williams firing home a 52nd-minute free-kick then striker Natasha Dowie equalising with an 18-yard shot 10 minutes later.

But Davison put Arsenal back in front with a 15-yard drive in the 78th minute, and two minutes later striker Julie Fleeting wrapped up victory with a luckily deflected goal.

The trophy will be presented to the Ladies at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday when they host Leeds Carnegie. Tickets are still available for the fixture and can be picked up from the Box Office today, priced at Adults £3, OAP (Over 65's) £1.50, Juniors (Under 16) £1.50.
