Chelsea have two 6-0 wins and a 1-0 defeat of Bayern Munich under their belts before hosting Liverpool on Saturday lunchtime, with the Reds needing to respond to a 3-0 home reverse at the hands of Reading and avoid the sort of heft defeat handed out to them by the Blues at the end of last season.

Everton have lost both their games since returning to the top flight and will need more of their battling second-half performance at Birmingham City last week when taking on Manchester City in the Saturday evening fixture. City followed up their big win over Arsenal with a 3-0 Champions League success away to St Polten in midweek.

Arsenal have an opportunity to return to winning ways when entertaining Bristol City in Sunday’s early kick-off although the two teams are currently level on points.

Reading and Birmingham go head to head, both with cause for optimism after positive performances and a win each so far.

Yeovil have been beaten in both their matches and welcome a Sunderland side who started with a victory put then felt the full force of a visit from Chelsea.

All the WSL fixtures are on Sunday, Durham and Watford first up in a noon start, with the visitiors chasing their first points.

Spurs bagged their first ever WSL points last weekend and now go to basement side London Bees, who will be anious to get off the mark.

Millwall are unbeaten but home to Brighton who boast perfect form with back to back wins.

Another meeting of sides yet to experience defeat pits top of the table Oxford against Doncaster in a 4pm kick-off.

Sheffield FC won last time out and have home advantage over Aston Villa, who have yet to register a goal.
