Manchester City and Reading are first up on Saturday afternoon, with the reigning WSL champions against the Royals one of two all top-flight affairs.

The other, on Sunday, sees Notts County entertain WSL 1 newcomers Yeovil at the changed venue of Eastwood Town FC. 

Tottenham take a break from their FAWPL Southern title race for the huge challenge of facing holders and North London rivals Arsenal away from home.

Liverpool and Everton clash at their shared Widnes home and although the Toffees needed penalties to win through the last round, they have a 100% record in the league so far.

West Bromwich Albion won the Premier League Northern Division last season but have been unable to successfully defend their title but cup progress has presented them with an intriguing if big test at fellow Midlands side Birmingham City.

Doncaster Rovers Belles WSL 2 Spring Series campaign only got underway last week when they helped remove London Bees from top spot with a 4-1 victory. They know have a tougher challenge to rise to, with a trip to tackle last year's beaten finalists Chelsea.

Promoted Bristol City welcome a Millwall team that has not yet won in the league, with only two points from four games.

Aston Villa are unbeaten but also away to senior opposition in Sunderland, for whom this will be Melanie Reay's first match in charge.
