Barclays Women’s Super League fixtures this weekend begin with Manchester United hosting Aston Villa at Old Trafford.

Manchester United could go top, if only briefly, by beating fifth-placed Aston Villa in the early kick-off, with leaders Chelsea later away to lowly Leicester City. Arsenal might also lead the table before then, should they defeat Everton.

Reading are next to bottom and take on Tottenham, Liverpool are one point better off and welcome West Ham, while Manchester City are home to Brighton.

Championship leaders London City Lionesses host third-placed Southampton who trail them by only two points, second-in-the-table Bristol City make the trek to Durham.

Fourth-placed Charlton Athletic face Sheffield United, Lewes lead Crystal Palace by one point ahead of their mid-table meeting.

Birmingham City have a similar advantage over hosts Blackburn Rovers, while Coventry United clash with Sunderland in the basement battle.
