Arsenal and Manchester City have never drawn any of their 14 WSL meetings and neither will want to drop any points in the battle to finish in the three Champions League places. City have defeated the Gunners 2-1 twice in recent months; in the delayed 2019/20 FA Cup and in the league before Christmas, when Caroline Weir struck a dramatic stoppage-time winner.

Aston Villa and Spurs kick off the weekend action on Saturday lunchtime, with the reverse of the fixture won 3-1 by the north London side in December.

Brighton face a daunting trip to league leaders Chelsea, going into the game having taken just one point from the last six games.

Second-placed Manchester United defend an unbeaten home league record that goes back over a year when they entertain Reading.

Everton will look to end a run of just one victory in their last seven but visitors Birmingham City have seen their last four wins all come away from home.

West Ham have won all three of their WSL matches against Bristol City, including a 4-0 victory in December, but the Robins are now within two points of the Hammers.

Wildcats aim to force Foxes off top spot

Durham are level on points with Championship leaders Leicester City from a game more. Maintaining their unbeaten form at London City Lionesses will therefore send them top.

London Bees take on third-placed Sheffield United, Liverpool sit fourth and go to basement side Charlton Athletic.

Coventry United are only a point off the bottom ahead of hosting Lewes, while mid-table Blackburn Rovers have home advantage over  Crystal Palace.
