Oxford United v Durham (Oxford City FC, 12pm)
Tottenham Hotspur v Brighton & Hove Albion (Cheshunt FC)
Watford v Doncaster Rovers Belles (Kings Langley FC, 3pm)

Next to bottom Bristol have found goals hard to come by so far with only two from five games, ahead of hosting Everton who are a couple of points and three places better off than the Vixens.

Yeovil have found it tougher still without a single goal or point to their name and facing a trip to Liverpool, who will go third with a victory.

Sunderland are two points ahead of visitors Birmingham from a game more going into their 6pm kick off on Saturday, which is streamed live on the league’s Facebook page.

Top flight fixtures continue on Sunday with four of the leading five in action.

Chelsea and Arsenal clash in a London derby live on BT Sport, with the unbeaten Blues looking for a win to take them into first place, if only briefly.

Leaders Manchester City defend a 100% record when they play later in the afternoon in the live BBC match but cannot be guaranteed maximum points against Reading, who have already held Chelsea at Adams Park.

Basement side Watford are under the new management of Armand Kavaja, as the winless Hornets host WSL 2 leaders Doncaster. The Belles have a four-point lead at the top and have yet to be beaten.

Millwall are the other side still to suffer defeat and one of three teams with a game in hand on Doncaster. The Lionesses host Sheffield FC, whose campaign has seen two wins but four losses.

Durham sit second on goal-difference before travelling to Oxford for a noon start. United are two points short of the Wildcats and have had a mixed season so far of two wins, draws and defeats.

Sixth-placed newcomers Spurs play fourth in the table Brighton, who won 4-1 away to Tottenham in the Conti Cup group stage back in November.

Aston Villa and London Bees go head-to-head with just the one victory each and one point between them, in the Bees favour.
