All 12 Women's Super League teams are in action this weekend on what promises to be a thrilling day of domestic football.

So far, we have previewed the huge clash between Chelsea and Manchester City, Everton's trip to Manchester United, and winless Liverpool's game with West Ham.

Fourth on the list this week is Brighton's trip to Tottenham as both sides look for their first win in three and four games respectively.

Tottenham vs Brighton

Spurs have had a mixed start to their first ever top flight campaign, winning three and losing four of their first seven matches.

They averaged less than a goal a game, clearly the area in which they have struggled to adjust to the demands of the WSL.

At the back they look a lot more solid, although they were exposed by crosses into the box in their 3-1 defeat to Everton.

However, the North London outfit are yet to lose to a side currently below them in the table, so that is something for Karen Hills' side to take confidence in.

Meanwhile, Brighton had a poor start to the campaign as they failed to win any of their first five games, the worst of which came in a 3-1 home defeat to West Ham.

They then improved significantly when they dispatched Birmingham 3-0 at home - Kayleigh Green netting a brace and Lea Le Garrec scoring a screamer.

But they were then thumped 4-0 by Manchester United and followed that up by relinquishing a 2-1 lead in the final minute against Reading as they had to settle for a draw.

Neither side is yet in a position where they desperately need a win to ensure their safety.

However, both teams do need to arrest their dip in form and get a victory under their belts, so in that respect it could be an entertaining one.

The match kicks off at 2pm on Sunday and will be available to watch on the FA Player.

There will also be a round-up of all the WSL games on NewsChain shortly after they have all finished on Sunday evening.
