What could happen

This handy visualisation from women's football journalist Jessy Parker-Humphreys shows how the teams can move today:

13:25a month ago

Welcome!

Eight months of fixtures all come down to today. Chelsea and Manchester City could both clinch the title, with the former only needing a point — and for the Mancunians' goal difference to not increase by more than three — to successfully defend the trophy.

At the other end of the table, it's a three-way battle between Birmingham City, Bristol City and Aston villa to avoid the drop.

Stay tuned for live updates throughout the afternoon
