Republic of Ireland skipper Katie McCabe fired a superb second-half goal for Arsenal in the 4-0 WSL win over Aston Villa in Walsall.

McCabe's rocket was the highlight of a much-needed win for the Gunners, as they chase a Champions League spot to salvage something from a disappointing season.

There were also goals for Vivianne Miedema, Jordan Nobbs and Lisa Evans.

Title-chasing Manchester City were also 4-0 winners. Their win at Birmingham drew them within two points of leaders Chelsea and levelled the sides' goal difference.

Sam Mewis scored twice for City, with Lauren Hemp and Caroline Weir rounding off an eighth straight win. 

In the day's other game, Everton beat Tottenham 3-2.
