Manchester City women’s met Leicester City over the weekend, in which City came out victorious after a 1-0 win with a goal from Chloe Kelly.
The international break for women’s football has commenced, giving the clubs a short break while the players all head to their national teams, but much to City supporters, their club goes into the club as league leaders with 10 points.
Head manager Gareth Taylor mentioned before the Leicester fixture that people shouldn’t see City’s lead as a short-term thing, showing his determination for this season.
After the 1-0 victory, Taylor expressed his thoughts on how his team played, “It’s tough when you play a team like Leicester; they go player for play, which makes our flowing game a bit difficult to play. The second half was a bit more even. But I have to say that it gave me a buzz seeing that the players were so determined to get a clean sheet and win.”
When the international break comes to its end, Man City will have some big games ahead, with Arsenal and United both coming in December, and while the manager knows how vital getting points from those fixtures will be, he believes every game City face have almost the same importance,
“It’s always important when you play the so-called contenders. It is important to take as many points as you can. That’s always more or less how the title has been decided. Every game is big in WSL; there is no game that you can look at and know that will be three points. It’s important to finish on a strong, positive win that sets up nicely for the break.”
Manchester City will meet Arsenal on Saturday, the 5th November.
