Charlton Athletic v Coventry United (VCD Athletic, 2pm) – The FA Player 
Sheffield United v London Bees (Chesterfield FC, 2pm)

Chelsea clash with Manchester City in a game where either could go top of the table, if ony for a couple of hours. A a second noon kick-off has an opportunity for hosts Manchester United to leapfrog visitors Everton into fourth spot.

Liverpool look for a first win when they entertain West Ham, Tottenham Hotspur take on Brighton, leaders Arsenal are at Reading for a 2.30pm start and half an hour later, Bristol City and Birmingham City get underway in a six-pointer close to the wrong end of the table – the latter now without injured Brianna Visalli until the new year.

Championship leaders Aston Villa are home to basement side Leicester City on Saturday evening, looking to further extend theri advantage ahead of second-placed Sheffield United facing London Bees the following aftenoon.

Durham could have edged above the Blades by then should they beat Lewes in the mid-day match, while elsewhere Blackburn Rovers go up against fourth-in-the-table London City Lionesses and Charlton Athletic have a crucial clash with Coventry United, both sides being just goal-difference off the bottom.
