TEAM NEWS

Gareth Taylor could ring the changes a matter of days after Sunday's Women's FA Cup triumph over Everton.

The City boss has no new injury concerns with everyone seemingly returning from Wembley unscathed.

Aoife MannionMegan Campbell and Lauren Hemp remain long-term absentees.

Manager's preview: Gareth Taylor

“The Women's FA Cup Final win gives us a platform to push on. I expect us to compete. City have a reputation: we fight to the end, and we’ll fight in all competitions.

“We’ll draw on the resources of the squad. We understand everyone else wants to be successful. To get a trophy under our belts in the second month of the season is great.

“The players have been first-class and the staff have been great. I am new, I am going to make mistakes but I will try and do everything I can to bring success to this Club.”

Last time out

City won the Women’s FA Cup for the third time in four years on Sunday, successfully defending the trophy with a 3-1 victory over Everton at Wembley in the 50th edition of the tournament.

Substitutes Georgia Stanway and Janine Beckie struck in extra-time to snatch the win, as the holders produced a spirited display to edge the Toffees in a tense encounter at Wembley, after the two sides had played out an enthralling 1-1 in normal time with Valérie Gauvin cancelling out Sam Mewis' opener.

Having lifted the trophy in May 2019, City had held the honour for a total of 547 days heading into this clash and triumphant in the first of two FA Cup tournaments this season, ensured our name will remain on the prestigious silverware for at least another six months…

Last meeting

Gemma Bonner scored against her former club to give City a hard-fought 1-0 win over a stubborn Reds side at the Academy Stadium back in December.

The defender nodded home Caroline Weir’s pinpoint free-kick midway through the first half to stretch Nick Cushing’s side's winning run to five games in all competitions, though City created enough chances to secure a more comfortable victory.

Liverpool were indebted to keeper Anka Preuss, who made a couple of fine saves and forced Ellie Roebuck to do the same as they rallied during the closing stages.
