Sheffield United will takeover at the top on goal-difference if they beat visitors Crystal Palace.

Any slip-up by the Blades would give Leicester City the opportunity to lead the table – also on goal-difference – should they take the points at London City Lionesses.

Fifth plays fourth as Lewes host Liverpool, with both teams just a point behind the Foxes and the Blades.

London Bees look to get off the mark at the seventh attempt, having home advantage in an all-capital clash against Charlton Athletic.

With some of Coventry United’s players testing positive for COVID-19, the squad has gone into self-isolation and so the fixture with Blackburn Rovers has been postponed.

Fast start the goal for Málaga CF boss Nati!
