WHEN AND WHERE
Gareth Taylor’s side travel to Kingsmeadow for a 19:15 (UK) kick-off on Friday 16 February with us sitting one place and three points behind the league leading Londoners.
The seismic clash will be broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC Two, BBC Sport Web and BBC iPlayer, but our global TV listing at the bottom of the page shows how to tune in outside Great Britain.
As ever, there will be dedicated coverage on mancity.com and our official app, while the key moments will be posted on X: @ManCityWomen.
The Official Man City App will provide dedicated coverage of the meeting in the capital.
Our Matchday Centre will get under way from 17:45 (UK) and will provide detailed text commentary, stats and analysis before, during and after the game.
Live commentary from Mike Minay will accompany the Matchday Centre while those with push notifications turned on will also be alerted to all the key moments of the match as they happen.
Short and extended highlights as well as a CITY+ full-match replay will be made available at 12:00 (UK) on Saturday 17 February.
GARETH TAYLOR PREVIEW
Gareth Taylor says Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw is available for selection for Manchester City’s top-of-the-table clash with Chelsea.
The Jamaican had been replaced in the second half in our recent 1-0 win over Arsenal, with the boss explaining that she’d been nursing a calf strain.
But Taylor has revealed that Shaw is fit to face Chelsea on Friday.
“She [Bunny] is fine, it’s something she’s managing but she’s raring to go. She’s really important for us and been such a focal point for the team and our success.
“She’s always carrying knocks because of how she plays, she’s physical and takes the knocks. She’ll never be 100% but it’s very rare players are with the heavy load we have.”
LAST TIME OUT
City reached the FA Cup quarter-finals with a hard fought 1-0 win over Arsenal in our previous outing.
During a battling encounter in the capital, Laia Aleixandri’s strike in the 74th minute was enough to secure the success and with it our 10th straight win in all competitions.
A heroic City performance earned us a 1-1 draw with Chelsea in October’s reverse fixture at the Joie Stadium.
However, through a combination of stellar Khiara Keating saves and colossal rearguard action we looked like we might record a famous victory.
But Guro Reiten’s 96th-minute strike earned Emma Hayes’ side a share of the spoils.
