Barclays FA Women’s Super League title and relegation issues to be decided on final day of the campaign.

Sunday 9 May, all 2.30pm kick off

Arsenal v Aston Villa – live on The FA Player
Birmingham City v Tottenham Hotspur – live on The FA Player
Brighton & Hove Albion v Bristol City – live on The FA Player
Chelsea v Reading – live on BT Sport 1
Manchester United v Everton – live on The FA Player
West Ham United v Manchester City – live on BT Sport Extra 2 / The FA Player

Chelsea will make it back-to-back titles if they defeat Reading, while Manchester City’s hopes centre around a shock win – or a draw – by the Royals, with the latter outcome also requiring a minimum improvement of three if their goal-difference when visiting West Ham.

Bottom of the table, Bristol City’s poor goal-difference means they cannot realistically overtake West Ham but they do still have Aston Villa in their sights, and now Birmingham City too following a one-point deduction. Birmingham had played Ruesha Littlejohn against Reading while she was suspended and a one-match ban will see her miss the game against Tottenham.

While the Villains have a tough away day at Arsenal where a point will be enough for their survival, the Robins visit Brighton desperate to repeat their home win over Albion.

Spurs occupy eighth place but will surrender that if they lose at Birmingham City, for whom a draw would be enough to finally secure their status.

Elsewhere it’s fourth versus fifth but with Manchester United a dozen points ahead of Everton.
