'And we will fight forevermore because of Derby Day...'

The third professional women's Manchester Derby is almost upon us, as City and United lock horns in the FA Women's Cup fourth round on Saturday.

The pair go head-to-head at Leigh Sports Village at 12:45pm GMT, having both registered a win apiece in 2019's previous encounters.

United currently hold the bragging rights, following October's 2-0 win, after Caroline Weir's wonderstrike had secured all three points at the Etihad Stadium in September.

FA Cup holders City will look to continue our defence of the trophy with a victory to kick-off manager Nick Cushing's final week in charge on a positive note, before he leaves for pastures new as Assistant Manager of New York City FC.

In preparation for the mouth-watering clash, City trained at the City Football Academy on Friday.
