After a disappointing 2-1 loss to Arsenal over the weekend, Manchester City move on to the FA League Cup, where Liverpool await.
Man City started their League group off with a 2-1 win against Everton a few weeks ago, and Liverpool began with a defeat to Leicester City. Now, the two sides will attempt to earn themselves the crucial three points as they encounter one another for the first time this season.
Manchester City are currently sat on second place in the WSL table, three points behind Chelsea. While Liverpool they are fourth, their most noticeable victory coming over Arsenal, who just defeated City a few days ago.
Despite Liverpool’s commendable result against the Gunners, City will still be the favourites for this game. And while City will do their best to take all of the available points tonight, they still have another two games of the League Cup to play (besides the Liverpool clash).
During November, they’ll meet Leicester City, who currently have the same number of points as the Cityzens. They later will face Manchester United, who have been placed into the group after failing to qualify for the Champions League group stage.
With the game coming up, Gareth Taylor discussed his squad: “We changed nine players against Everton. We had three suspensions but played phenomenally well. We trust the players that we have, whether we make changes or not. We are always looking at being as effective as we possibly can.”
