City are unbeaten in our last five league games and won all four of our December matches, including a crucial 2-0 triumph over Arsenal in the FA WSL and 3-0 win over Göteborg FC in the Champions League Round of 32 second leg.
West Ham have won three of their last five games, The Hammers defeated both Bristol City and Charlton 4-0 and edged Birmingham City 2-1 but fell to narrow losses (3-2 and 1-0) at the hands of Chelsea and Brighton and Hove Albion.
Gareth Taylor preview
England forward Georgia Stanway marked her 100th appearance for the Club by scoring twice in a 5-0 win over the Hammers - before later being sent off - with Nick Cushing’s side finding the target four times in a dominant opening 45 minutes with Ellen White and Lauren Hemp also scoring.
Stanway added to another fine individual display by then providing an assist as Tessa Wullaert struck a fifth goal after the break.
It was the perfect showcase for the Blues on Women’s Football Weekend with a healthy and noisy Academy Stadium crowd treated to a superb all-round display.
The only downside on the afternoon was the fact that Stanway was then dismissed on 72 minutes after picking up two yellow cards inside five minutes.
LAST TIME OUT
Lauren Hemp announced she’s back with a bang, netting a Goal of the Season contender to help secure City’s passage into the Champions League Round of 16.
The PFA Young Player of the Year smashed home a rocket from 25 yards to open the scoring in the Round of 32 second leg clash against Göteborg, before substitute Georgia Stanway bagged a second-half brace to clinch a 3-0 win (5-1 on aggregate).
The superb strike marked her first goal of the season with the 20-year-old having missed the opening months of the 2020/21 campaign through injury.
The victory continued City's excellent run of form with four wins from four in December, as Gareth Taylor's side continue to progress both domestically and in Europe.
