"We'll come back from the international break and have the FA Cup right away.

"It's a priority to win that game to get to the semi-finals and have a good chance to retain the cup."

Last time out

The Academy Stadium played host to one of the most entertaining games in recent FA Women’s Super League history, as City and Chelsea contested a thrilling 3-3 draw.

Youngster Lauren Hemp bagged a dramatic leveller for Alan Mahon’s league leaders, after goals from Ellen White and Georgia Stanway had been cancelled out by Ji So-yun and Magdalena Eriksson before Bethany England turned the game on its head.

With Stanway also seeing a penalty saved at 2-2, the game – and the title race – looked to swing firmly in Chelsea’s favour but Hemp, who netted the winner in the 2-1 triumph over fellow rivals Arsenal, popped up once more to salvage a potentially pivotal point.

Last meeting

A ruthless display of attacking football ensured City made a flying start to our defence of the Continental Cup, with an emphatic 5-0 win.

Caroline Weir and Pauline Bremer each grabbed a brace before Tessa Wullaert completed the scoring, curling into the top corner to net the pick of the bunch and send City top of Group C after one game.

Leicester were resolute in their defending early on and only trailed by one goal at the break, but City moved through the gears in the second period when our quality proved too much for the Championship outfit.
