Top four to face off following absence.

Byline: Rachel Corsie SCOTLAND'S CAPTAIN SPEAKS OUT Moreen Simpson Column

THE FAWSL returns to action this weekend after a threeweek absence.

Spurs will host Reading in the opening game of the weekend, before Manchester City welcome strugglers Bristol City, also this afternoon.

Tomorrow will capture the eyes of a few more, I am sure, with the top four all facing each other. League leaders Arsenal are the only team to win every one of their opening five league fixtures but this week's test will potentially be their hardest yet. They will take the trip to Manchester to face United.

So far this season, Arsenal have fallen short when facing some of the other big names in other competitions. However, I would expect them to come out on top in this particular encounter.

Meanwhile, current champions Chelsea will see Everton come to visit. Both sides remain unbeaten in the league as well, however Everton are currently sitting second having played a game extra over their opponents. Chelsea had their fixture against Villa postponed earlier in proceedings and are playing catch-up.

For Birmingham City, we will take on West Ham at home. The Hammers recruited heavily in summer but have made a disappointing start and are yet to win in the league. However, a good midweek performance and a 3-0 win over Reading in the Conti Cup might be a turning point.
