Barclays FA Women’s Super League leaders Arsenal host Tottenham Hotspur this Sunday in the second North London derby in just over three weeks.

Sunday 18 October

Everton v Brighton & Hove Albion (Walton Hall Park, 1pm) – live on The FA Player
Reading v Manchester City (Reading FC, 2pm) – live on The FA Player
Bristol City v Birmingham City (Bath City FC, 2pm) – live on The FA Player

Charlton Athletic v Coventry United (VCD Athletic, 2pm) – live on The FA Player
Crystal Palace v Leicester City (Bromley FC, 2pm)

It will be the second recent meeting at Meadow Park between the Gunners and Spurs, Joe Montemurro’s side eventually winning the delayed 2019-20 FA Cup quarter-final 4-0. Tottenham had held out until the last 17 minutes, in which Lisa Evans hit a hat-trick after Jordan Nobbs made the breakthrough.

West Ham have one point from four games ahead of hosting Manchester United in the early kick-off, who would again go top at least for a few hours with a fourth victory in five.

Everton will look to make it five wins in a row at home to Brighton and potentially be the league’s third leader of the day from their 1pm start.

Reading are only a point behind fifth-placed Manchester City whom they meet at the Madejski Stadium, while Bristol City hope to get off the mark and away from the foot of the table with home advantage over Birmingham City.

It’s bottom versus top in the early kick-off, with London Bees still to register a point as they take on Durham.

Second-placed Sheffield United go up against Lewes who are only a point behind them, Crystal Palace are home to fifth-placed Leicester City whom they trail by three points.

Seventh plays eighth as Charlton Athletic clash with Coventry United, ninth takes on tenth as Blackburn Rovers entertain London City Lionesses.
