There is a limited programme due to cup commitments but including the second clash in a week of FAWSL title-chasers Chelsea and Manchester City, as well as a capital derby for FAWC leaders Spurs at London Bees.

Sunday 10 February


Manchester City v Chelsea (Academy Stadium, 1pm) – Live on BT Sport 1 & 4K
Bristol City v Brighton & Hove Albion (Stoke Gifford Stadium, 3pm)


Leicester City WFC v Crystal Palace (Quorn FC, 2pm) – live on LCWFC TV YouTube channel
London Bees v Tottenham Hotspur (Barnet FC, 2pm)

Manchester City and Chelsea meet for the third time this season and the London side have yet to score a goal against the current leaders. Their opening league fixture ended 0-0 and Nick Cushing’s side beat Chelsea on their own ground in the Conti Cup semi-finals on Wednesday. Another such result for unbeaten City would put them four points clear but Chelsea really need the win to gain ground on Arsenal, who already have a game in hand.

Bristol City are going for a league double over Brighton, having won away to Albion by the only goal of the early season game. Three more points for the Vixens would put them within four of fourth-placed Birmingham City.

Tottenham Hotspur have the chance to add to their four-point advantage at the top of the Championship but go to the only other side in the division not to have drawn so far in this campaign. London Bees only lost out by the odd goal in three away to Spurs and a recent good run in form has seen them climb to fifth spot.

Mid-table Leicester City WFC visit next-to-bottom Crystal Palace whom they beat 2-0 in their previous meeting.
