What's at stake?

Just the title and relegation spot! It all comes down to a fascinating finale. Emma Hayes' Chelsea are two points clear at the top of the table following their 2-0 win over Tottenham in midweek.

The west Londoners, who are still on course for a quadruple this season, host sixth-placed Reading in what will be Fara Williams' final match after announcing her retirement last month.

Second-placed Manchester City could yet pip rivals Chelsea to the trophy if results go their way. City need to win at West Ham to stand a chance of clinching the title for the first time since 2016. In the last three seasons they have finished runners-up.

It's not only the title race up for grabs, down at the bottom, Bristol City are fighting for their top-flight survival.

Bristol City are two points adrift and need to pick up all three points away to Brighton and hope that 11th-placed Aston Villa lose to Arsenal.

Joe Montemurro signs off as Arsenal manager this weekend, and has all but secured Champions League football for the north Londonders next season. Manchester United would need Arsenal to lose, and for them to overturn a goal difference of 26 at home to Everton to finish third.

In the final WSL clash, Birmingham City host Tottenham. Carla Ward's side are all but clear of relegation but are still awaiting a punishment from the Football Association for fielding ineligible player Ruesha Littlejohn in their league clash with Reading last month.

What about the race for the WSL top goalscorer?

Chelsea forward Sam Kerr tops the chart heading into the final day on 20 goals. Arsenal's Vivianne Miedema trails the Australian international by two goals, while Kerr's team-mate Fran Kirby has notched 14 goals in a superb campaign for the England international.
