Women's Super League roundup: Arsenal Women extend winning run

Jordan Nobbs scored both goals in a 2-0 win.

Arsenal's winning streak stretched to seven games as Jordan Nobbs scored both goals in their 2-0 Women's Super League win against Brighton.

Joe Montemurro's side have not conceded a goal throughout those successive victories, with their clean sheet still intact after Sunday's clash at Meadow Park.

Nobbs' first goal came after 27 minutes when she converted a Danielle Van De Donk cross.

Nobbs struck again to seal the victory after the interval, this time collecting a Vivianne Miedema pass which fell at the feet of the midfielder after some intervention from forward Beth Mead.

Tottenham extended their losing run to nine successive league games as they suffered a heavy 4-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United.

Ella Toone opened the scoring for the hosts after just nine minutes, with Christen Press adding a second 10 minutes later.

Jess Sigsworth scored a third for Casey Stoney's Reds in the 31st minute, after which Toone struck again, stepping up to score a 48th-minute penalty awarded after Lucy Staniforth was brought down in the box.

United's clean sheet and four-goal advantage lasted until the third minute of stoppage time, when Spurs' Alanna Kennedy grabbed a consolation with a late free-kick.

Birmingham's winless league run was extended to 12 games as they had to settle for a 1-1 draw with Reading at Damson Park.

Ruby Mace put the home side ahead in the opening minutes, turning in a Sarah Mayling corner, but they eventually surrendered their lead when Reading's Rachel Rowe equalised in the 63rd minute.

Elsewhere, neither West Ham or Everton were able to find a goal as they played out a 0-0 draw at the Chigwell Construction Stadium.

Sunday's key events


GOLF
Β· The men's golf reaches its conclusion, with plenty of players still in medal contention. Home favourite Hideki Matsuyama is one shot off Xander Schauffele's lead, while Great Britain's Paul Casey is another shot further back and Tommy Fleetwood is also in the mix (11.30pm-8am)

CYCLING - BMX
Β· Great Britain have already made history in the BMX events in Tokyo, something Charlotte Worthington and Declan Brooks will be looking to add to in the women's (2.10am) and men's (3.10am) freestyle finals

SWIMMING
Β· The final day of swimming action begins with the men's 50m freestyle final. Ben Proud could add to a medal-laden Games in the pool for Team GB so far, although he is up against USA's Caeleb Dressel, who is going for his fourth gold in Tokyo (2.30am)
Β· From sprint to endurance, Great Britain's second medal hope of the day comes through Daniel Jervis in the men's 1500m freestyle final (2.44am)
Β· Team GB will again be among the heavy favourites for gold in the last swimming event of the Games - the men's 4x100m medley relay final - having won the mixed event in a world record time on Saturday (3.36am)

BOXING
Β· Already guaranteed at least a bronze, Pat McCormack takes part in the men's welterweight semi-final against Ireland's Aidan Walsh with a spot in the gold medal final at stake (4.03am)
Β· Ben Whittaker is also in the semi-finals of the men's light heavyweight and will be looking to continue Team GB's success in the ring (4.51am)

TENNIS
Β· There will be a surprise on the top of the men's tennis podium after Novak Djokovic missed out on a medal altogether. Alexander Zverev takes on Karen Khachanov in the second match on Centre Court at the Ariake Tennis Park (7am-2pm)

SAILING
Β· Alison Young will be going for gold in the women's laser radial medal race (7.33am)

ARTISTIC GYMNASTICS
Β· Team GB's Max Whitlock will look to defend his 2016 Olympic title in the men's pommel horse final (10.41am)

ATHLETICS
Β· The men's high jump final includes GB's Tom Gale, although his chances of a medal look bleak (11.10am)
Β· So often the blue-riband event of the Olympics, the men's 100m final takes place as the world's fastest bid to be crowned Usain Bolt's successor. Three Brits have made it into the semi-finals (11.15am-11.32am), and the final looks wide open after an underwhelming display by favourite Trayvon Bromell on Saturday (1.50pm)

HOCKEY
Β· Great Britain face India in the men's quarter-final (1pm)
