Manchester City recorded a second successive six-goal margin of victory on Sunday, while Reading were on the wrong end of such a scoreline and another victory for the Cityzens on Friday will put them top of the league.

Current leaders and top-scorers Arsenal are at Bristol City, with the Gunners having netted over five times as many goals as their hosts, although the Vixens have managed draws against both Chelsea and Man City.

Before their midweek Champions League trip to Florence, Chelsea entertain fourth-placed Liverpool and hope to improve on just two goals in six games that have featured four 0-0 draws.

Everton have yet to record a victory but have home advantage over a West Ham side just two points better off than themselves.

Brighton and Yeovil meet in a basement battle, with Albion seeking an opening win and the Glovers going after their first points.

Tottenham lead the Championship by two points and intend to make it six wins on the trot in their home game with next-to-bottom Aston Villa.

Any slip up by Spurs and Manchester United will be ready to retake top spot, with Casey Stoney’s team at fourth-placed Leicester and yet to concede a goal.

Millwall have taken just one point to date and next host a local derby with Charlton, who sit in third in the table.

London Bees and Durham occupy spots either side of mid-table, with the Wildcats in fifth and having only let on two goals so far.

Crystal Palace in eighth are one point in front of visitors Sheffield United but the Blades have two game in hand.
