City women are back on home soil for the first time in just under a month, with Everton our opponents at the Academy Stadium for a 5:30pm kick-off.

Last weekend’s impressive 4-1 win away to Tottenham Hotspur has seen us pick up from where we left off before the festive period, and we go into our match with the Toffees full of confidence.

Nonetheless, the team are under no illusions about the challenge they will face on Saturday evening, with Willie Kirk’s side harbouring their own WSL top four ambitions.

A win provides enough incentive for our players, but the added motivation of potential hitting the WSL summit depending on other results has once again added an edge to preparations.

And that spark was clear to see from the get-go with the players ramping up the intensity while still having a laugh in the process.
