In our recent game, a second half comeback saw City take all three points against Everton at the Academy Stadium, with goals from Keira Walsh, Janine Beckie and Nikita Parris securing the win for City, responding to Chantelle Boye-Hlorkah's opener and maintaining our place at the top of the WSL.
Now, as we look ahead to the final, Cushing believes being able to hand minutes to a variety of his players during the week will benefit the squad as we head to Bramall Lane.

“We got some minutes into Janine Beckie, while Abbie McManus and Meg Campbell both played 45 minutes.
“We’ve got a lot of competition in the squad and we’ve now got to pick the best team to beat Arsenal in the final.”
