Manchester City are preparing to take on their City rivals, Manchester United, this coming Sunday, as they hope to return to winning ways in the Women’s Super League after failing to win their last two WSL fixtures.
After going into the last international break as League leaders, Man City have slipped down to sixth place with losses against Arsenal and Brighton coming their way. But during those two defeats, City earn themselves a win in the FA League Cup as they overcame Liverpool in a stellar game that ended 4-3 for the Ciyzens.
But this Sunday will hold the extra importance of the famous derby between the two sides, which will mixed in with the desire for the three points to add to the table.
The head manager of City, Gareth Taylor, has given his press conference and spoken about the big challenge upcoming this weekend,
“Absolutely looking forward to it. This game doesn’t need any building up; it’s a big game in its own right. The spirit in the squad has been good; the team regrouped really quickly after the disappointment last Sunday (Brighton 1-0 loss).”
Taylor then continued to add, “Two games ago, we were at the top of the League, and now we’re sixth; it’s a big game for our title challenge. Each game is important. Looking forward to the challenge.”
Currently, Chelsea are leading the way, with Arsenal in second, United in third, and Spurs and Liverpool just beneath the three, with City behind all of those five opponents. But despite this looking disappointing for City, the point separating them from those sides isn’t too big to overcome.
Man United 2-3 Man City
