Manchester City edged Manchester United 1-0 in front of a massive crowd at the Etihad in theopening game of the WSL campaign but now the Blues must try to repeat that away to the Reds.

West Ham and Spurs also meet for the second time this season, Tottenham having overcome the Hammers recently at the London Stadium.

Durham have an immediate opportunity to avenge last week’s surprise home defeat to Blackburn as they this time visit Rovers.

Reading welcome Lewes to the Madjeski Stadium but it’s Aston Villa and Sheffield United who kick off the weekend’s games on Saturday evening.
