West Ham United pulled off a shock 2-0 win at Manchester City to climb to fifth in the Women’s Super League table on Sunday, while Tottenham Hotspur went second with a 2-0 win away to newcomer Leicester City.
West Ham’s Dagny Brynjarsdottir broke the deadlock with a header six minutes before halftime and, though City’s Ellen White had a goal ruled out for offside, the Hammers defended bravely before Yui Hasegawa added a second in stoppage time to seal the win.

Tottenham cruised to its fourth straight victory thanks to Rachel Williams and Angela Addison, while Everton was also winner away from home as it notched up a 3-0 scoreline against Reading, with all the goals coming in the first half.
Birmingham City’s poor run of form at home continued in Sunday’s late kickoff as it lost 0-2 versus Manchester United to record its fourth defeat in four games.
Leah Galton rifled in Hannah Blundell’s pull-back to put the visitor in front after 27 minutes and Blundell got another assist by setting up Ella Toone for a second in the 80th. The Blues has failed to win any of its last 17 home league games.
