The WSL returns on Saturday and Sunday for gameweek 14 of the 2021/22 season following last weekend's brief pause for the fourth round of the FA Cup.

All 12 teams are in action, with standout fixtures involving Arsenal and Manchester in Borehamwood and Chelsea and Manchester City in Kingston upon Thames 24 hours later.

As always, every game is available to watch live and this is everything you need to know...


Saturday 5 February

Arsenal vs Man Utd

When is kick off? Saturday 5 February, 12:30 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? Meadow Park
TV channel/live stream? Sky Sports Premier League (UK), FA Player (international)
Highlights? Sky Sports Football YouTube, FA Player, BBC Women's Football Show
Referee? Elizabeth Simms

Manchester United won at Meadow Park in the Continental Cup only a few weeks ago but were convincingly beaten by the Gunners in the reverse WSL fixture back in November.

Arsenal haven't really been at the races since then, although have at least halted a recent losing streak. Aside from a Conti Cup defeat in midweek, United have been in top form lately.

Prediction: Arsenal 1-1 Man Utd

Sunday 6 February

Chelsea vs Man City

When is kick off? Sunday 5 February, 12:30 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? Kingsmeadow
TV channel/live stream? BBC Two/iPlayer (UK), FA Player (international)
Highlights? FA Player, BBC Women's Football Show
Referee? Amy Fearn

This game won't be a repeat of the 4-0 thrashing Chelsea dished out against a Manchester City side in disarray earlier in the season, with the latter now in a considerably better place.

Neither side is at full strength because of niggling injuries and both are actually missing their captains for this one, with Magdalena Eriksson and Steph Houghton ruled out.

Prediction: Chelsea 2-2 Man City

Everton vs Reading

When is kick off? Sunday 5 February, 13:00 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? Walton Hall Park
TV channel/live stream? FA Player (UK & international)
Highlights? FA Player, BBC Women's Football Show
Referee? Andrew Kitchen

Everton are looking for a new manager for the second time this season after sacking Jean-Luc Vasseur, who lasted just three months in the job following a failure to improve results.

Reading are heading in completely the opposite direction. They have won four in a row and are unbeaten in their last seven n the league. This could make it five and eight respectively.

Prediction: Everton 1-2 Reading


Birmingham vs Leicester

When is kick off? Sunday 5 February, 14:00 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? St Andrew's
TV channel/live stream? FA Player (UK & international)
Highlights? FA Player, BBC Women's Football Show
Referee? Louise Saunders

This game could have huge ramifications in the relegation battle, with both Birmingham and Leicester adrift of the rest but separated from each other by just two points at the bottom.

Leicester won the reverse fixture shortly before Christmas to claim their first ever WSL points. Birmingham later shocked Arsenal but have since come crashing back to earth.

Prediction: Birmingham 2-1 Leicester


Tottenham vs Brighton

When is kick off? Sunday 5 February, 14:00 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? The Hive
TV channel/live stream? FA Player (UK & international)
Highlights? FA Player, BBC Women's Football Show
Referee? Lauren Impey

Tottenham were disappointing in their last WSL game, putting up minimal fight against Manchester United, while they were knocked out of the Conti Cup by Manchester City in midweek.

Brighton, on the other hand, may just be coming out of their winter slump. They took the lead against Arsenal last time out and frustrated Chelsea in a 0-0 draw the week before that.

Prediction: Tottenham 1-1 Brighton


Aston Villa vs West Ham

When is kick off? Sunday 5 February, 18:00 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? Bescot Stadium
TV channel/live stream?
FA Player (UK & international)
Highlights? FA Player, BBC Women's Football Show
Referee? Lucy May

Aston Villa managed to secure what was just a second WSL win since September in their last game when a late Alisha Lehmann was enough to beat Leicester.

West Ham will be looking to ensure that isn't the start of a winning run. They are really tough to beat but have to be able to turn too many draws into wins in order to rise up the table.

Prediction: Aston Villa 1-3 West Ham
