City are unbeaten in our last ten matches ahead of our clash with the Foxes.

Gareth Taylor's side have won nine of those fixtures, but come into the tie on the back of a 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

On the other hand, the hosts are looking to put a heavy defeat at the hands of Chelsea behind them, as they searching for their second victory of the season.

That fixture was played on Saturday 3 December, with the Foxes' last two matches both postponed due to a frozen pitch.

City claimed an important three points against Leicester in our pursuit of Women's Champions League qualification back in April 2022.

Goals from Caroline Weir, Lauren Hemp and Julie Blakstad handed Gareth Taylor's side a commanding lead at the break.

Alex Greenwood then added further gloss to the scoreline in the second half, pushing City into the top three ahead of United.

Last time out 

Laura Coombs' second half header was enough to earn City a point against United in front of a Club record crowd for a women's fixture.

An incredible 44,259 supporters packed into the Etihad Stadium to see two of the league's form sides do battle, and it was the visitors drew first blood through Leah Galton’s deflected effort just before the half hour.

But City would grab the equaliser early in the second half through Coombs’ close-range strike.

Bunny Shaw and Martha Thomas would go particularly close to earning both teams all three points late on, but the two sides would have to settle for a share of the spoils in a thrilling, end-to-end encounter at the Etihad.
