City head into the game in scintilating form, having won each of our our last nine FA WSL games.

Our recent impressive run leaves Gareth Taylor's side just two points behind league leaders, Chelsea with eight league games to go.

The hosts head into the game on the back of a mixed, recent run which has seen them record three wins, two losses and a draw in their last six games in all competitions.

The Vixens come into this one the back of a League Cup final defeat, after losing 6-0 to Chelsea at Vicarage Road.

last meeting

It was an afternoon to remember for Taylor and his side in the reverse fixture earlier this season, as a rampant City ran out 8-1 winners at the Academy Stadium.

An own goal, an Ellen White brace and goals from Laura Coombs, Keira Walsh, Lucy Bronze, Georgia Stanway and Janine Beckie capped off a remarkable performance back in November.

City head into the game on the back of a superb away performance in the Champions League Round of 16, after Taylor's side ran out 5-0 winners over Fiorentina.

A fast start saw City take a 3-0 lead 30 minutes in thanks to a brace from Ellen White and a Carloine Weir penalty.

Sam Mewis then added a double in the second half to cap off and exquisite 8-0 aggregate win over the Italian side.
