The WSL returns from its winter break for gameweek 11 of the 2021/22 season this weekend.

Just as was the case in the last round of fixtures before Christmas, some games have fallen foul of Covid-19 postponements, but there are still several clashes to look forward to.

This is everything you need to know about how to watch this weekend's games...


Friday 7 January

Chelsea P-P Tottenham

A number of positive Covid-19 tests on top of additional injury concerns in the Chelsea squad resulted in the game at Kingsmeadow being called off on Wednesday evening.


Saturday 8 January

Aston Villa P-P Everton

Everton's request to have Saturday's clash with Aston Villa postponed due to Covid-19 cases was granted by the FA and the fixture will be rearranged for later in the season.


Sunday 9 January

Brighton didn't end 2021 in great form but can still reflect on a positive 18 months and will be no easy task for a Manchester City side still not at their best. Expect this one to be a tight affair.

Prediction: Brighton 1-1 Manchester City


Birmingham vs Arsenal

League leaders Arsenal should be confident of starting 2022 with a comfortable win over a stretched Birmingham side that has taken only one point from 10 games this season.

Prediction: Birmingham 0-3 Arsenal


Reading vs Leicester

Having been so close so often, Leicester finally got some points on the board last time out. But adding to that against a Reading side that has found its groove in a big way of late is a tough ask.

Prediction: Reading 2-1 Leicester


West Ham P-P Manchester United

The clash between West Ham and Manchester United was supposed to be Sunday evening's showcase match broadcast live on Sky Sports. However, a number of suspected Covid-19 cases in the Hammers camp led to its postponement.
