Big fixtures at the top of the Barclays FA Women’s Super League, as the leading four sides play among each other.

Manchester United tackle Arsenal who have the only 100% record and have also scored at least 13 more goals than any other side. The teams boast the players who have created the most chances from open play this season, in Leah Galton and Beth Mead.

Chelsea and Everton also going head-to-head on Sunday lunchtime, as the hosts seek to avenge their FA Cup quarter-final defeat by the Toffees, against whom they have kept a clean sheet in each of the last four league meetings.

West Ham hope to build on their midweek Conti Cup win when travelling to Birmingham City, having lost their last four WSL games while the Blues have won their latest two.

Aston Villa are back in action and chasing a first point at this level away at Brighton, who have won just one of their last seven games in the league.

But it’s Saturday afternoon when the action kicks off, Spurs looking for a first win when welcoming Reading – who have beaten Spurs all four times they’ve met them – Manchester City meeting basement side Bristol City, who did the double over them in 2014 but now have the youngest average age of a WSL starting XI this season.

Durham’s noon kick off with Charlton Athletic could see them go top of the Championship, before current leaders Sheffield United face a tough test at Liverpool, who could also finish the weekend in pole position.

Fourth plays fifth as Leicester City entertain Lewes whom they lead on goal-difference, Blackburn Rovers face a London Bees side boosted by back-to-back league and cup wins, while Crystal Palace continue their search for a first home win with Coventry United their visitors.
