The destination of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League title and third UWCL place will be determined in the final round of games.

Sunday 8 May (12:00pm)

Aston Villa v Birmingham City (Villa Park) – live on The FA Player
Brighton & Hove Albion v Everton (Crawley Town FC) – live on The FA Player
Chelsea v Manchester United (Kingsmeadow) – live on Sky Sports Main Event
Reading v Manchester City (Reading FC) – live on The FA Player
Tottenham Hotspur v Leicester City (Tottenham Hotspur Stadium) – live on The FA Player
West Ham United v Arsenal (Dagenham & Redbridge FC) – live on BBC Two/BBC iPlayer/BBC Sport Website

Chelsea begin the day top of the table by one point and host Manchester United, who must win to have a chance of securing third spot and the final Champions League place.

The title is in Chelsea’s hands but they need a victory to be sure, as Arsenal – who are away to West Ham – have a better goal-difference, which would come into play should the Blues lose and the Gunners draw.

Manchester City realistically only require a draw at Reading to cement third place, leading Manchester United by two points and having a goal-difference nine better than that of the Red Devils.

Spurs can secure a best ever finish of fifth if they get a positive result against Leicester City at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. They currently lead West Ham by two points and also have a superior goal-difference.

Brighton will achieve a top-half finish if they beat Everton and West Ham lose to Arsenal, although Reading are only a goal behind Albion.

Aston Villa host the second City derby with newly-relegated Birmingham at Villa Park, looking for the win that would seal ninth place for Carla Ward’s side.
