Manchester City are home to Arsenal this time though and lead the table with a goal-difference just one better than that of the Gunners. Chelsea are a point behind the leading pair but with a game in hand, as they prepare to welcome West Ham for a London derby.

Reading meet fourth-placed Manchester United whom they trail by a point, fifth-placed Everton go to Brighton who are three points and as many places off the bottom.

Basement side Bristol City head to Spurs after the mid-day clash of Liverpool versus Birmingham City, with the Reds only goal-difference off the foot of the table and the Blues a single point better off.

It’s top versus bottom in the Championship, with unbeaten Aston Villa entertaining draw specialists Charlton Athletic who have yet to win.

Durham will go third if they manage to take all three points at Blackburn Rovers, mid-table Leicester City are two points ahead of visitors Lewes and London City Lionesses take on Coventry United who lost defender Jodie Bartle to Celtic in midweek.

Crystal Palace’s match at Sheffield United is postponed as the Eagles have to replay their FA Cup tie with fourth tier Southampton Women’s FC.
