Leicester City play their game in hand over Championship title rivals Durham when hosting London City Lionesses and a win for the Foxes will secure their promotion. While just a draw would leave the Wildcats with only a mathematical chance of catching Leicester, the Lionesses are the only side to have beaten City in the league this season.

One Saturday afternoon fixture sees WSL basement side West Ham visit Reading, needing a point to climb off the foot of the table.

Leaders Chelsea have a lunchtime kick-off against Birmingham City, who are winless in their last nine WSL matches but four points better off than the Hammers.

Aston Villa are just a point above the relegation place as they head to Everton, who hit them for six earlier this season. Villa will look to end a run of four straight defeats in which they have failed to score once.

Manchester City trail Chelsea by two points and go to Spurs attempting to equal the all-time competition record of twelve wins in a row, set by Arsenal between May-November 2018.

The Gunners are at relegation-threatened Bristol City and battling Manchester United for the third Champions League spot, with Casey Stoney’s side travelling to Brighton.

Liverpool and Sheffield United could yet push Durham for the FA WC runners-up spot, the Reds host Lewes in a noon start and the Blades go to Crystal Palace.

Blackburn Rovers play bottom-but-one Coventry United and Charlton Athletic can ensure if they don’t finish last by avoiding defeat against lowly London Bees.
