Manchester City will look to cut Chelsea’s lead to just two points with their game in hand, visiting Birmingham City who have not won at home in the WSL since beating Liverpool in October 2019.

The fixture has been moved to St George’s Park by the League’s Executive Operations Committee (EOC), due to Birmingham’s current home ground at Solihull Moors FC not meeting requirements in the Rules and Regulations of the FA WSL.

Arsenal are nine-points behind third-placed Manchester United from two games fewer, as they go to Aston Villa who were recently boosted by their very first WSL win on home soil against Spurs.

Everton have drawn four and lost four in their last eight fixtures and visit a Spurs side who have conceded four penalties this season, the most in the league.

Championship leaders Leicester City host Crystal Palace, while Durham – second on goal-difference from one game more – have a tricky trip to fifth-placed London City Lionesses.

London Bees are only one point above the bottom two as they head to Liverpool, while Coventry United entertain Charlton Athletic in the basement battle.
