Manchester City will look to avenge their pre-Christmas loss to Chelsea as they hold a one-point lead at the top of the table but from a game more.

Both have the chance to move further clear of Arsenal, with the Gunners playing their delayed Women’s FA Cup tie with Lewes.

Sixth-placed Everton begin like at their new ground with a visit from Manchester United, who are one point better off than them in fifth.

Brighton are four points behind visitors Spurs, West Ham play relegation-threatened Liverpool, while Birmingham City and Bristol City – who are both also in danger of the drop – go head-to-head.

Aston Villa lead the Championship by five points and with a game in hand ahead of a visit from Coventry United, although second-placed Durham have an early kick off at London Bees.

Sheffield United are also in the promotion chase and hosting Blackburn Rovers, Leicester City would hope to build on their shock cup success over Reading when home to a winless Charlton Athletic, while there’s a capital clash as London City Lionesses take on Crystal Palace.
