Arsenal Ladies beat Northern Division side Sunderland 2-1 at Derby's Pride Park to win their fourth FA Women's Cup final in succession.

Katie Chapman put Arsenal ahead after Sunderland goalkeeper Helen Alderson could only parry Gemma Davison's shot.

The Premier League side missed several chances before Kim Little sealed the win in injury time with a neat turn and finish after controlling a high ball.

Kelly McDougall got a consolation with the last kick of the match.
