Yeovil Town 1 11 0 7 37 3

The latest: Manchester City defeated West Ham United which, combined with Arsenal falling 2-1 at home to Chelsea, lifted Man City to the top of the table with Chelsea now looming a serious title contender. Arsenal, now a point behind Man City and two clear of Chelsea, have a match in hand on both. Chelsea’s win was a severe role reversal from October when the Gunners won 5-0 at Cherry Red Records’ Fan Stadium. Emma Hayes’ side have not lost since with seven straight wins following a draw with Birmingham City the following week. With Chelsea and Arsenal finished with each other the title race is likely to come down to their remaining matches with Manchester City. Chelsea head to Manchester on February 10 and Arsenal host in the May 12 season finale.
