Opposition view: Juan Amoros

“They have a lot of threats in their squad and they added players to a team that was already full of experience and quality.

“They have a lot of tools in their box and have probably signed one of the best players in the world with Rose Lavelle.

“We know all their players cannot all play at once, and hopefully we’ll be able to expose any weaknesses they may have and get a positive result.”

Last time out

City booked our place in the FA Women's Cup Final for the third time in four seasons.

A superb, battling 2-1 victory over the in-form Arsenal secured the feat, as captain Steph Houghton and summer recruit Sam Mewis fired home against the Gunners to edge a thrilling encounter, which also saw World Cup winner Rose Lavelle make her debut for the Club.

Jordan Nobbs had levelled before the break with a stunning long-range effort but once again, City’s fighting spirit shone through with an impressive display.

Last meeting

City kicked 2020 off to a flyer with a stunning 4-1 away triumph.

Pauline Bremer continued her excellent scoring form with a brace, while Ellen White also claimed a goal and two assists with Lauren Hemp completing the rout.

Rianna Dean had halved the deficit for the hosts on the 20-minute mark from the penalty spot but the visitors proved too strong and produced a clinical performance to kick off the New Year.
