Beth England and Sam Kerr both scored twice after Jessie Fleming opened the scoring to send Chelsea back to the top of the Women’s Super League with a 5-0 victory over Reading.
The Blues were knocked off top spot for only a matter of hours after Arsenal hammered Leicester 5-0, but they responded with a five-star performance of their own.
Fleming volleyed in the opener just before half-time and then Mead followed suit with a sweet strike after the break.
Kerr added a third from close range to put the result beyond doubt and netted her second of the evening with Reading tiring in the closing stages.
England rounded off a fine performance by scoring a penalty after she had been fouled by Faye Bryson in injury time.
