There are London and Manchester derbies on Wednesday and Friday respectively in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League title race.

Wednesday 10 February 

Chelsea v Arsenal (7pm) – live on The FA Player
Birmingham City v Aston Villa (6pm) – live on The FA Player
Brighton & Hove Albion v West Ham United (7.30pm) – live on The FA Player
Tottenham Hotspur v Bristol City (7.30pm) – live on The FA Player

Friday 12 February 

Manchester City v Manchester United (7pm) – live on BT Sport 2

Chelsea must recover quickly from Sunday’s shock home defeat when hosting Arsenal, with the fourth-placed Gunners seven points off the Champions League places and therefore desperate for victory themselves.

Manchester United are just goal-difference off the top but away to Manchester City on Friday, when either of these local rivals could end up in pole position.

There’s also an all-Midlands match as Birmingham City in ninth take on tenth-placed Aston Villa, whom they lead by a single point. The kick-off time has been brought forward to 6pm.

Boosted by a tremendous win away to the leaders at the weekend, Brighton are back on home turf to play West Ham who are two points above the one relegation place.

That position is still held by Conti Cup finalists Bristol City, who will be determined to take something from their trek to Tottenham.
