Arsenal are the new leaders of the Women's Premier League after beating Leeds Carnegie in their top-of-the-table clash.

Left winger Rachel Yankey capped a good start by the Gunners putting the visitors in front with a well-struck cross-shot after 15 minutes.

Leeds responded well, and only a fine save by goalkeeper Emma Byrne prevented midfielder Steph Houghton from equalising with an 18-yard drive.

Either side of half-time left-back Olivia Thackeray and striker Ellen White wasted good chances to level.

And despite further pressure, the home side were unable to force an equaliser that would have kept them on top of the table.
