Chelsea v Man City clash too close to call

Reading look value against Yeovil

Manchester City celebrate winning the WSL in 2016
1 of 1

Chelsea v Manchester City
Sky Sports Mix & Arena, 6pm Sunday
The televised Women's Super League clash between Chelsea and Manchester City could well be the fixture that determines who will be crowned champions in May. 

The two heavyweights were neck and neck on points until Chelsea were held to a 2-2 draw by Reading last month. Emma Hayes's side have since returned to form with an 8-0 win over Yeovil last weekend and a 4-1 over Tottenham in the Continental Tyres Cup. 

Meanwhile Manchester City remain unbeaten and despite being pushed all the way by Doncaster Rover Belles in the cup on Tuesday, they still emerged with a 3-2 victory. 

The last time the sides met was in the Spring Series where former striker Toni Duggan's goal was enough for City to take the three points. 

It looks sure to be a tight contest between the title contenders but it's difficult to find much edge in the match-betting market. 

Punters can rely on Reading, who have impressed many observers with their displays this season and they can continue their upward trajectory against Yeovil in the 12.30pm kick-off. 

Yeovil have been rooted to the bottom for much of the season and face a tough task to beat Kelly Chambers' side. This looks an ideal opportunity for Reading to close the gap on Liverpool and Arsenal who sit above them in the table.

Recommendation
Reading-Reading double result
1pt 11-10 bet365
