The latest: Ellen White’s 92nd minute goal gave Birmingham City a 3-2 away win at Chelsea, delivering a crushing blow to the Blues title hopes. Birmingham had rallied from an early deficit to take a 2-1 lead before Erin Cuthbert equalized for Chelsea in the 83rd minute. The loss drops Chelsea six points behind Manchester City and five behind Arsenal for a Champions League berth. Arsenal have a match in hand on both. Chelsea had won seven straight in the league and conceded only six goals in 13 matches before giving up the triple to Birmingham. The match week concludes Monday with Liverpool hosting West Ham United.

The latest: Atletico Madrid and Barcelona both recorded wins as they close in on their March 16 showdown that should decide the league title. The Golden Boot race is proving much more interesting with Jennifer Hermoso netting a hat trick for Atletico to go even with Barca’s Charlyn Corral for the league lead with 13. Hot on their heels with 12 are Sociedad’s Nahikari Garcia and Albacete’s Alba Redondo, who scored the goal in a 2-1 home loss to Sevilla. Priscila Borja scored for Real Betis on the weekend and is next on 11 goals.
