Chelsea and Manchester United kick off the weekend’s Barclays Women’s Super League fixtures with a top of the table clash.

Chelsea trail United by just one point with a game in hand, Manchester City are two points further behind the leaders and away at Brighton, who are only the same margin off the bottom.

Fourth-placed Arsenal sit three points short of City with a game in hand, but do not play until the evening when they welcome Reading.

West Ham face Aston Villa in a mid-table fixture but with the latter seven points better off, Liverpool are two points ahead of visitors Tottenham, while basement side Leicester City entertain Everton.

Bristol City hold a six-point lead over London City at the top of the Barclays Women’s Championship, with the Robins hosting Durham and the Lionesses home to Lewes.
