Manchester City's next fixture comes as not only their final fixture of the season but also the game that could determine if they win the Women's Super League

After Chelsea's 4-3 loss to Liverpool last week, Man City's hopes were raised even more than before, giving them a certain gap of at least three points. 

For City, their meeting with Arsenal saw the Cityzens lead 1-0 through Lauren Hemp, but the 89th and 92nd minutes saw Arsenal accomplish a comeback, depriving City of three points. 

Later on, Chelsea were massive winners against Bristol City, with a score-line of 8-0.

While there still remains a gap of three points, Chelsea do have an extra game to play as City have one. 

Chelsea next meet Tottenham; the Blues were successful against Spurs in their first encounter, winning 2-1. 

As Man City play Aston Villa on the final day of the season, Chelsea will take on City's biggest rivals, Man United. Ironically, United could create a huge stepping stone for Man City, if they were to beat Chelsea. 

The maximum points Man City can attain is - if they beat Villa - 55 points, and as for Chelsea, 55 points are also the total that can be achieved by them. 

So, if both clubs are to win all their remaining commitments, they would end the campaign with the same amount of points. If that is the case, it would very likely go down to goal difference, in which City were superior prior to Chelsea's crashing of Bristol. 

Manager Gareth Taylor, spoke about the upcoming duty his players have to secure the WSL title, that they've been working so hard towards, "I've always thought that, I've always said it'll go down to the final day. I never changed my process, we knew what to do, it would've been nice to win but we have another opportunity at Villa."

"We have to win the game first and hope that's enough to secure the title. Chelsea opened the door and we've done the same. We knew we'd have to go to Villa and win at the end of the season."

After the last few results, the winner will most definitely be decided on the final day, and despite whatever happens regarding Chelsea, Man City can only come out of their fixture with a three-point winning result. 


And while they will hope that either Tottenham or United could get Chelsea to drop points, their concentration will remain firmly on overcoming Villa. 

There are now only two weeks until we find out who has won the Women's Super League 23/24, and both sides will have to give their absolute everything in a bid to be the name that comes out on top.
