Manchester United made a strong statement of intent in their first FA Women's Championship game on Sunday with a 12-0 hammering of Aston Villa.
United, managed by former England international Casey Stoney, are playing their first season since being reformed after they were originally disbanded in 2005.
They won one and lost one of their first two Continental Tyres League Cup games but began their league challenge in some style.
Jess Sigworth ran riot as she scored five goals, while Lauren James and Kirsty Hanson score two apiece in the rout.
Katie Zalem, Mollie Green and Ella Toone also scored as Villa had no answer to United's superiority.
In the Super League, there was also an enjoyable day for Arsenal as Vivianne Miedema's hat-trick fired them to a dream start in a 5-0 thrashing of Liverpool.
Miedema scored two and made goals for Lisa Evans and Kim Little as the Gunners stormed to a 4-0 half-time lead and then made sure she took the matchball home after the break.
It means Liverpool manager Neil Redfearn is waiting for his first win and goal since taking over earlier in the summer, having lost to Manchester United in the League Cup.
