Aston Villa play at their new ground of Walsall on Saturday lunchtime, looking to get off the mark in the top flight but up against Everton who have won both games and also made the FA Cup final.

Manchester United and Brighton kick off the WSL matches on Sunday at noon, the pair are both unbeaten and sit fourth and fifth respectively in the table.

Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur then also have an early kick-off, with the visitors awaiting a first victory of the campaign as they take on a City side that beat Arsenal in the Cup on Thursday.

The Gunners will hope for an immediate return to winning ways as they entertain a Bristol City side that has suffered two big defeats and not scored a goal.

Birmingham City are yet to register a point and next go head-to-head with Chelsea, while West Ham look to rebound from a hefty defeat when home to Reading.

Sheffield United, top of the Championship by virtue of goals scored, visit fifth-placed Charlton, second-placed Liverpool are at mid-table side Coventry.

Fourth-placed Leicester City have home advantage against Durham, who are goal-difference off the top.

London Bees have lost all three games and face Crystal Palace who have drawn twice, while London City Lionesses chase a first win and are home to Lewes.
