Arsenal Ladies can sew up their second-successive FA Women's Super League title on Sunday if results go their way, but manager Laura Harvey has warned her side that Liverpool will be out to spoil the party.
The Gunners can move on to 30 points with victory at home to Liverpool, with just two WSL games left to play. And if they do, Birmingham are the only team who could catch them.
Sitting third, Birmingham have 21 points so if they were to win their remaining three fixtures, they too could reach 30 points.
But an Arsenal victory over Liverpool, coupled with anything other than a Birmingham win in their clash with Doncaster on Sunday, would ensure the Gunners retain their title.
"Sunday is a chance for Liverpool as no-one expects them to win so they have nothing to lose," explained Harvey.
"Sometimes that can be when teams are at their most dangerous so we won't be complacent at all.
"The main focus for Sunday is to get the three points and get to that 30-points tally that we've looked at. We know that 31 points wins us the league and ultimately that's our aim.
"This group of players have very rarely let me down or let the club down and I doubt Sunday's game will be any different."
Whisper it quietly, but Arsenal Ladies are also facing a potentially unbeaten season, a feat that, while not at the top of their priorities, Harvey admits would be welcomed.
"It just shows you that if you can set your sights to win every football match then you give yourself the best chance of being successful," added Harvey.
"But we are not really thinking about the undefeated title yet. We just want to win the league, and to do that as quickly as possible is the ideal scenario."
Arsenal's clash kicks off at 2pm on Sunday and they could face an anxious wait to see if they have secured the title as Birmingham's clash at Doncaster does not kick off until 7.45pm.
Elsewhere on Sunday, second-place Everton will also be hoping to put pressure on the top side with when they travel to face Lincoln Ladies.
Sitting second with 22 points from their 12 games, Everton could still finish the season with a maximum of 28 points.
That means they will mathematically remain in the title race with a victory, should Arsenal lose against Liverpool.
