Chelsea are unbeaten as they prepare to host leaders Arsenal who boast a 100% record, Manchester City are goal-difference behind the Gunners and have the chance to overtake them on Saturday when entertaining Birmingham City.

Chelsea boss Emma Hayes told her club’s website: ‘It’s a game where you have got to take your chances and that is something we’ve been concentrating on and defensively we’ve been solid and that has to continue if we’re to come away with a win.

‘At the top, games are won and lost in just a few instances so it’s important for us that we we’re efficient and collectively we make it difficult for Arsenal and that we carry out everything that we’ve been working on.’

It’s fourth against fifth as promoted sides Spurs and Manchester United clash, Brighton welcome eight-placed West Ham whom they trail by one point, Reading take on Everton in fourth and Liverpool go head-to-head with Bristol City as both look for a first win.

Aston Villa will go top of the FAWC if they avoid defeat to Charlton at The Valley on Saturday, current leaders Durham have home advantage over basement side Blackburn.

Fourth-placed Sheffield United go to Crystal Palace, Coventry look to add to their single point when facing London City Lionesses, likewise Leicester who visit Lewes.
