team news

Gareth Taylor says Alanna Kennedy could be in contention to feature in this weekend’s Barclays Women’s Super League clash at Chelsea.

The Australian picked up a thigh injury on international duty earlier this month and missed out on our opening day defeat to Aston Villa.

But with another week of training under her belt, Taylor revealed that she could be in line to return to the fold when we travel to Kingsmeadow for Sunday’s 16:00 (UK) kick-off.

While the boss conceded that he and his staff are keeping a close eye on the condition of other players beyond Kennedy, he insisted that there had been little change in terms of the squad’s overall shape ahead of this weekend.

Gareth Taylor preview

“I wasn't surprised that Liverpool got something out of the game [against Chelsea]. We played them in pre-season and they're a tough outfit.

“Same with Aston Villa, a completely different team from last season, lots of changes and when those players play well, anyone can beat anyone.

“[There’s] no change in that respect. For us, we know it's going to be a really tough game, it’s their first home game but we’re looking forward to the challenge.

“We’ll hopefully show a better version of ourselves without the ball this time.

“It’s one that the players are looking forward to.

“Regardless of the team we pick, we’re expecting a good level and will try to make it difficult for Chelsea on their own patch but also show our best version with the ball.”

Previous meeting

The teams last met in May of this year with Chelsea edging a 3-2 win to win the Women's FA Cup.

Sam Kerr (2) and Erin Cuthbert would score the Chelsea goals, with Lauren Hemp and Hayley Raso on target for City, who forced extra time at Wembley but couldn't find a winner or take the game to penalties as Kerr's second of the game settled a pulsating encounter in front of almost 50,000 fans.

Stats

  • Manchester City suffered defeat in our opening match in a FA Women’s Super League season for the first time since 2014, their first season in the competition. They also lost their second game that season, a 2-0 home defeat to Bristol City.
  • After a 13-game unbeaten run in the FA WSL (W11 D2), Chelsea lost 2-1 to Liverpool last time out. They haven’t lost consecutive games in the competition since July 2015, with the second of those defeats coming at home against City.
  • Laura Coombs created five chances in open play for City in our 4-3 defeat against Aston Villa last time out. Only Vivianne Miedema (7) created more on MD1 of this season’s FA Women’s Super League.
  • Chloe Kelly has been involved in 26 goals in 27 FA Women’s Super League for City (11 goals, 15 assists), and has the best minutes per goal or assist ratio for the club among players with 1000+ minutes (one every 80 minutes).
