City boss Gareth Taylor expects Liverpool to be aggressive in this afternoon's Barclays Women's Super League clash at the Academy Stadium.

The visitors have won just one of their four matches so far - although that was against last season’s champions Chelsea.

City come into the match in excellent form having won our last Barclays Women’s Super League fixtures before the 6-0 defeat of Blackburn Rovers in the Continental Cup on Wednesday evening.

Today’s game is live on CITY+ and Recast and Taylor expects it to be a stern test.

Asked what to expect from Liverpool, he said: “An aggressive team. They will try to come out and stop you from playing. We need to be really good in that space, keeping the ball.

“They leave some gaps a little bit at the back so hopefully we can exploit that today.”
