Chelsea Women return from the international break with a big week that begins with the visit of Tottenham Hotspur Women to Kingsmeadow.
The Blues are level on points with Arsenal Women at the top of the WSL and face the prospect of a big Champions League group match against Real Madrid Femenino mid-week, but must first get past fifth placed Spurs.

Kick-off at Kingsmeadow is at 1pm on Sunday.
Hampton and Richmond will look to build on last week's win against Chelmsford as they begin their FA Trophy campaign against Farnborough.

Kick-off at the Powerday Stadium is at 3pm on Saturday.
Hanworth Villa will look to extend their fine league form this weekend as they take on Sutton Common Rovers in the Isthmian League South Central.
The Villains are now five without a defeat in the league after a late equaliser from Jonathan Hippolyte secured them a draw against Westfield on Tuesday.

Brentford Women move on from the success of their win at the Gtech Community Stadium as they take on Actonians LFC Reserves in the County Cup.
The Bees move away from league action having moved top of the table following their win against Watford Ladies Development, but they have had their struggles on the road this season as they are yet to win away from home in all competitions.
Actonians are undefeated and sat top of the table in the Greater London Women's Football League Premier Division and could prove a stern test to Karleigh Osborne's high-flying Bees.
