Chelsea edged ahead of Man City ahead of the WSL’s final day – but the title is still up for grabs on Saturday…

The Blues are bidding for a fifth successive title and the seventh of Emma Hayes’ reign before she departs for the USA at the end of the season.

Chelsea and City are level on 52 points after their 1-0 win at Tottenham on Wednesday, but Hayes’ side have a +47 goal difference, while City have +45, meaning the champions are currently top.

They will win the WSL if they beat Manchester United at Old Trafford on Saturday – live on Sky Sports – and maintain their goal-difference advantage over City, who travel to Aston Villa.

If Chelsea and City finish level on points and goal difference, the title will be decided by goals scored. Chelsea currently have 65 compared to City’s 59.

However, if Chelsea draw at United, a City win at Villa will hand Gareth Taylor’s side the title.

If Chelsea lose at Old Trafford, City just have to avoid defeat to Villa to win the league.
