It’s the big one. Manchester City travel down south to play Arsenal in what can only be described as a crucial game in the title race. The blues will want to bounce back from a disappointing derby defeat last weekend.
Nick Cushing’s side will be reeling to get back onto the field and playing again after last weeks Derby disappointment but tests don’t come tougher than last years WSL champions, Arsenal.
Not much change on the injury front, with Aofie Mannion, Karen Bardsley and Laura Coombs the long term absentees. Ellen White is also unlikely to feature whilst Georgia Stanway will look to play in her first game in almost two months.
Last time in the WSL, City comfortably beat Birmingham at the Academy Stadium 3-0. Goals from Keira Walsh, Tessa Wulleart and Lee Geum-Min, alongside some magical all-round play, made it brilliant to watch.
City and Nick Cushing know that this is a key game in what will be a mightily close title race. But City have got enough quality to go and take the game to the Gunners, but there must be an improved performance on last Saturday.
Predicted XI: Roebuck, Bonner, Campbell, Houghton, Stokes, Scott, Weir, Wullaert, Beckie, Stanway, Hemp
