Both Pep Guardiola and Gareth Taylor will be facing the media in two separate press conferences on Friday, as we prepare for our Premier League clash with Chelsea and Women’s Super League showdown with Arsenal.

Guardiola’s press conference, looking ahead to our trip to Stamford Bridge, will get underway at around 13:30, and you can follow it live on and our official app.


Should you be unable to watch as it unfolds, then rest assured that both a written review and video recap will be available soon after the press conference has concluded.

Fresh from the international break, Gareth Taylor will also address the media on Friday afternoon as we look to kickstart our campaign with a statement result against title rivals Arsenal on Sunday.

As with Guardiola, a comprehensive summary of proceedings can be digested on and our official app once the press conference has finished at 15:30pm.


Under-18 Premier League | City v Middlesbrough (Kick-off 12:00)
Premier League | Chelsea v Manchester City (Kick-off 12:30)
Premier League 2 | City v Arsenal (Kick-off 15:00)

A bumper Saturday afternoon sees Pep Guardiola’s men, our Elite Development Squad (EDS) and Under-18s all in league action.

First up are Ben Wilkinson’s young blues, who play host to Middlesbrough at the City Football Academy as we look to build on Saturday’s convincing 5-2 triumph in the Under-18 Premier League Cup against Aston Villa.

Kick-off is at 12:00 (UK), with a report on proceedings available to view soon after the full-time whistle.

Our senior side then take centre stage from 12:30, as we travel down to the capital to lock horns with Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea.

In a replay of last season’s Champions League final, victory would not only see us go above the Londoners, but also potentially go top of the Premier League table depending on results elsewhere.

Build-up to our showdown with Chelsea gets underway on Matchday Live from 11:30am, with Nedum Onuoha our special guest, while you can also follow minute-by-minute coverage via our Matchday Centre.

Keep across and our official app to follow the action as it unfolds, as well as a comprehensive match report and reaction from Pep Guardiola and players following the full-time whistle.

Another top-of-the-table clash concludes our bumper Saturday offering, with City’s EDS taking on Arsenal at the Academy Stadium from 15:00 (UK).

Brian Barry-Murphy’s side earned a thrilling 4-2 comeback victory over Crystal Palace to go top of Premier League 2 at the weekend and will hope to build on that success with a statement win over second-placed Arsenal.

It promises to be a thrilling clash, and you can follow the key events by keeping across our dedicated matchday twitter: @ManCityAcademy, as well as via a match report on and our official app.

Reaction from Brian Barry-Murphy will also be available to view on Sunday, before our final match of the week gets underway.


FA Women’s Super League | Arsenal v City (Kick-off 18:45)

A bumper week draws to a close when City travel down to Meadow Park for a massive WSL clash on Sunday evening.

City have grabbed three points from our opening two matches of the new season but know victory over the Gunners would represent a huge statement of intent against Jonas Eideval’s side.

Arsenal sit joint-top of the WSL tree having picked up a hugely impressive opening day win over WSL holders Chelsea and Reading respectively, but our late 2-1 triumph from last season’s fixture will provide a confidence boost for Gareth Taylor’s side as we travel south.

You can follow all of the key moments via our dedicated matchday Twitter: @ManCityWomen, while a comprehensive match report, as well as the boss’ take on proceedings will also be available across the evening on and our official app.
