The weekend action includes four Saturday fixtures, featuring the FA Women’s Continental League Cup Final between Chelsea and Manchester City.

The televised early evening clash at Plough Lane will be played in front of a sell out crowd, while in the WSL Manchester United have the chance to move back into the Champions League places when entertaining Leicester City.

Spurs – whose Ashleigh Neville in the WSL POTM – currently hold third spot and travel to Reading on Sunday and it’s top versus bottom as Arsenal host Birmingham City, who inflicted a shock defeat upon the Gunners at St Andrews.

Although Liverpool are on course to win the FA Women’s Championship, they face a tricky trip to third-placed London City Lionesses, while Bristol City sit second ahead of travelling to Lewes.
