Arsenal had to battle to beat Liverpool 3-2 away to stay in touch with the Barclays FA Women’s Super League’s leading pair.

Rinsola Babajide had given the relegation-threatened hosts the lead, racing clear to finish past Pauline Peyraud-Magnin.

The Gunners hit back with a quickfire brace, Vivianne Miedema netting via the bar from a cross by Jordan Nobbs, who then scored herself when heading home a Lisa Evans delivery.

But it was a back header from Evans that let recent signing Rachel Furness in to equalise with a volley in first-half stoppage-time.

Arsenal left the Deva Stadium with all three points after Miedema’s 78th-minute header from Leonie Maier’s cross.

Attendance: 660.
