City have won eight of our last nine games in all competitions and head into the clash on the back of Sunday's superb 2-1 win over Arsenal.
United have won three and lost three of their last six games in all competitions, falling to a 2-0 home defeat to Reading last time out.
Beyond Mewis and Stokes, Taylor also revealed that there are no fresh injury concerns following that crucial victory over the Gunners.
Gareth Taylor preview
"The feeling is good. We’ve had a good start to the year and we had a good end to the year as well.
"We are looking to finish off on a good note. Everyone looks good and is looking forward to game
"We want the city to be blue after this occasion.
"Bragging rights go hand in hand with that. They are good games to be involved in."
Caroline Weir Preview
"There is no game like a derby.
"I think this is probably one of the biggest ones I will play in in terms of what is at stake and the way the season is shaping up.
"These are the games you want to play in. I am just glad it is here now."
City progressed to the Continental Cup quarter-finals despite losing on penalties to United, following a 0-0 draw in our final group stage game.
LAST TIME OUT
Lauren Hemp’s far post header ten minutes from time saw Manchester City become the first away side to beat Arsenal in more than a year, and provided a major boost to their Women's Super League title aspirations.
The hosts hit back just before the hour when Caitlin Foord finished off a swift counter, but Hemp was on hand late on to earn City a sixth win on the spin, and move us to within two points of the WSL summit.
- This will be the third Manchester Derby in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League, with the Reds yet to win either of the previous two (D1 L1).
- City have netted 25 goals across our last five home league games, winning each match and conceding only three goals.
- United have managed to win only one of the last five meetings with City in all competitions (D2 L2), though they did knock their neighbours out of the FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup via penalties back in November.
- United have won seven of their last eight away games in the league (L1), scoring 20 goals across those matches.
- Ellen White, who scored the opening goal in her side’s win at Arsenal last time out, has scored eight WSL goals this season, only netting more in a single campaign in 2017-18 (15). She has scored the outright highest number of goals in the competition’s history (55).
