Saturday afternoon will see the Barclays Women’s Super League title and relegation issues decided, plus the third European place confirmed.

Chelsea will be champions if they win at Reading, for whom only a victory will give them a chance of staying up.

Should Chelsea draw, Manchester United would require a six-goal margin of victory at Liverpool to edge ahead of them.

Arsenal look certain to take the third Champions League berth, holding a three-point lead and eleven-strong advantage in goal-difference over Manchester City, who host Everton while the Gunners entertain Aston Villa.

Leicester City welcome a Brighton side three points better off than themselves, with the Foxes seeking a win to secure their top-flight status.

West Ham take on Tottenham in a London derby, with the Hammers having a slim chance of finishing seventh, while Spurs would overtake them-with a three-goal win.
