City are in sparkling form heading into Sunday’s clash, with victory over Fiorentina on Wednesday night representing our sixth victory in a row in all competitions.
In the WSL, Gareth Taylor’s side are on an eight-game winning streak, and have not conceded on home soil since mid-December.
Nonetheless, Everton will not be at the Academy Stadium to simply make up the numbers, having only been beaten by Chelsea and Arsenal on the road this season.
The Toffees are unbeaten in three, and picked up a hard-fought 3-2 win away at Tottenham in their last match.
Gareth Taylor Preview
“I think most people will look at the run in now… look at Chelsea’s run in, Arsenal and Man United and probably look at Everton being one of those fixtures where it will be tough.
“We expect no different, Willie will set his team up to be really tough and resolute to break down.
“We’ve managed to be successful against them a couple of times this season but it won’t be easy.
“Everton made a really good start to the season, and have started to picked up again more recently.
“We’ll do our normal thing. It’s important to get back to back home games and it’s a game we’re looking forward to.”
City leapfrogged their opponents into fourth with three first half goals helping them on their way to a 3-0 victory back in December.
Janine Beckie then made it three on the stroke of half-time, losing her marker and heading home after another inch-perfect delivery from Weir to the back post.
