Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixtures include Manchester sides playing on Saturday lunchtime and a Sunday evening London derby.

Buoyed by their stunning win over Arsenal, Birmingham City continue their fight against the drop away to Manchester United, while Manchester City are on the road at Aston Villa after two big away wins in the last week.

Basement side Leicester have home advantage over Brighton, with third-placed Spurs welcoming West Ham for the late kick-off. Covid cases have caused two other games to be cancelled.

Liverpool lead the Championship by five points before facing Watford, although Durham might have cut that lead beforehand in their noon start with fourth-placed Crystal Palace.

London City Lionesses sit third and take on Sunderland, Bristol City go to Blackburn, Charlton meet Lewes with the Addicks one point better off from a game more, while Coventry United are back from the brink at Sheffield United but with a ten-point deduction.
