Manchester United lead the Barclays Women’s Super League table by just two goals from Chelsea, ahead of their Sunday lunchtime games at home to Everton and away to Spurs respectively.

Third-placed Arsenal are three points behind the leading pair with a game in hand but don’t play until the evening, away at West Ham, Manchester City kick-off the weekend away to basement side Leicester City. Brighton, four points better off than the Foxes, also have an early Saturday start in the Midlands at Aston Villa.

Liverpool host Reading whom they lead by a single point and from two games fewer, as both bid to keep away from the bottom of the table.

Championship leaders London City Lionesses entertain Sunderland, while closest rivals Bristol City visit Blackburn. Third-placed Southampton play Crystal Palace, Charlton and Birmingham are each a point behind the Saints before hosting Coventry and travelling to Lewes respectively. Elsewhere, Durham and Sheffield United meet in a noon kick-off.
