Aston Villa and Chelsea kick-off the weekend action in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League on Saturday lunchtime, Spurs and Manchester United then start Sunday’s games.

Chelsea have the chance to go level on points with leaders Arsenal at mid-table Aston Villa, before the Gunners welcome West Ham on Sunday evening.

There’s a first WSL experience for new Everton boss Jean-Luc Vasseur as they host Brighton, as things stand it’s fourth versus third as Spurs tackle Manchester United, Birmingham City face Reading in something of a ‘six-pointer’ in the bottom three, while basement side Leicester City are up against Manchester City. The Foxes’ Hannah Cain is out for the rest of the season, having ruptured her ACL in a behind-closed-doors friendly just days after her senior debut for Wales.

Crystal Palace have home advantage over Championship leaders Durham, Liverpool could go top if they overcome Blackburn. Fofth plays third as Sunderland entertain London City Lionesses, Watford go to Lewes still searching for a first win and Coventry are also without a victory as they prepare to face Bristol City in a Monday evening fixture.
