Chelsea and Manchester United met twice in league and cup last season, with the Blues winning both games 1-0

Champions Chelsea face an away game at Manchester United in the opening 2020-21 Women’s Super League fixtures.

Aston Villa, who won promotion from the Championship last season, start at home to Manchester City, while Arsenal begin with a home game against Reading.

The first round of matches will take place on 5-6 September.

Chelsea were declared winners at the end of a truncated 2019-20 season, which was curtailed in May because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Emma Hayes’ side were second when the campaign was suspended, but leapfrogged Manchester City into top spot when final places were decided by points per game.

Villa will appear in the WSL for the first time after winning the Championship title last season.

Dropping down to second-tier level are former WSL champions Liverpool, who will start the 2020-21 campaign with a home match against Durham.

Only the first two rounds of fixtures have been confirmed, with a full schedule set to be released in early September.

Games will take place behind closed doors until it is safe for supporters to return, with matches not chosen for broadcast on live television being streamed on the FA Player.
