The WSL returns on Sunday for gameweek 13 of the 2021/22 season.

After weeks of Covid-19 postponements seeing multiple games called off every weekend, all six fixtures are set to go ahead as planned this weekend.

Every game is available to watch live in the UK and around the world.

This is how you can tune in to each match, as well as score predictions...


Man Utd vs Tottenham

When is kick off? Sunday 23 January, 12:00 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? Leigh Sports Village
TV channel/live stream? FA Player (UK & international)
Highlights? BBC Sport website, FA Player
Referee? Lucy May

Manchester United are on a strong run after three successive WSL wins. They went above Spurs into the top three on goal difference last time out and have the momentum here.

The visitors will pose a threat because they too have had a fine season so far. But the quality and improving consistency of the home side should be just too much.

Prediction: Man Utd 2-1 Tottenham


Brighton vs Chelsea

When is kick off? Sunday 23 January, 12:30 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? Broadfield Stadium
TV channel/live stream? BBC Two/iPlayer (UK), FA Player (international)
Highlights? BBC Sport website, FA Player
Referee? Kirsty Dowle

Brighton sprung a shock last season when they inflicted Chelsea's only WSL defeat of the campaign, but don't expect a repeat this time.

Chelsea could be rusty, having not played for over a month thanks to Covid-19 postponements, but Brighton have been going backwards since November and have lost four in a row without scoring.

Prediction: Brighton 0-3 Chelsea


Leicester vs Aston Villa

When is kick off? Sunday 23 January, 14:00 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? Pirelli Stadium
TV channel/live stream? FA Player (UK & international)
Highlights? BBC Sport website, FA Player
Referee? Elizabeth Simms

Leicester have finally found their feet in the top flight. They waited a long time for their first points but have now taken six from the last nine on offer and were very much also in their narrow defeat to Reading sandwiched between the two wins.

Aston Villa have lost seven of their last eight in the WSL and that could become eight of nine.

Prediction: Leicester 1-0 Aston Villa


Reading vs Birmingham

When is kick off? Sunday 23 January, 14:00 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? Madejski Stadium
TV channel/live stream? FA Player (UK & international)
Highlights? BBC Sport website, FA Player
Referee? Lisa Benn

Reading are the WSL's in-form side. The Royals are unbeaten in their last six league games, dropping only two points during that run and are well place to keep it going here.

From the highs of a shock win against Arsenal, Birmingham were brought crashing back down to earth last weekend when they were thrashed 5-0 by Manchester United.

Prediction: Reading 2-0 Birmingham


West Ham vs Everton

When is kick off? Sunday 23 January, 15:00 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? Victoria Road
TV channel/live stream? FA Player (UK & international)
Highlights? BBC Sport website, FA Player
Referee? Lauren Impey

West Ham rescued a sensational late equaliser when they faced Tottenham last weekend and are now looking for a first win since November after multiple draws and Covid-19 postponements.

Everton are still lacking consistency under manager Jean-Luc Vasseur, who has now been in the job for three months. The Toffees have only won once against a team not in the bottom two.

Prediction: West Ham 1-0 Everton


Man City vs Arsenal

When is kick off? Sunday 23 January, 18:45 (GMT)
Where is the match being played? Academy Stadium
TV channel/live stream? Sky Sports Football (UK), FA Player (international)
Highlights? Sky Sports Football YouTube, BBC Sport website, FA Player
Referee? Abigail Byrne

Arsenal thrashed a Manchester City side in disarray earlier this season, scoring five without reply back in September. But now, however, it feels like it could be roles reversed.

The Gunners have lost five of their last six games in all competitions and were knocked out of the Continental Cup in midweek. City, meanwhile, have been getting key players back from injury and have won four WSL games on the bounce, scoring 17 goals in the process.

Prediction: Man City 3-1 Arsenal
