Second plays first in the Barclays Women’s Super League late Saturday kick off, as Leicester City meet Manchester City.

The Foxes are goal-difference behind Manchester City, with both sides unbeaten after three games. Tottenham could be top beforehand but they will need to win at Aston Villa, who are still seeking their first points.

Chelsea are a point off the top three and home to Brighton, while boosted by their win at Anfield, Everton entertain Manchester United.

West Ham welcome Liverpool and the weekend fixtures are wrapped up with Sunday evening’s game between Bristol City and Arsenal.

Barclays Women’s Championship leaders Southampton visit London City Lionesses, Sunderland – goal-difference off the top – make the long trip to Lewes.

Charlton Athletic host a local derby with Crystal Palace at The Valley, with the Addicks sitting fourth in the table and the Eagles third.

Durham v Blackburn Rovers and Reading v Sheffield United are two of the three noon kick offs, while Birmingham City face Watford.
