Manchester City's current winning form continues after a 2-0 victory over Leicester City on Sunday afternoon, and that wasn't the only good news for the Cityzens as Arsenal failed to claim three points, and now there is a gap between second and third.

Man City were successful on their part, surpassing their opponent thanks to goals from Lauren Hemp and Chloe Kelly, and now have a total of 31 points, which keeps them on second, three ahead of Arsenal.

Chelsea were 3-0 winners against Everton, staying firmly in first place with 34 points on the board thus far, and City are three points behind; really setting up for an exciting end to the season with all three clubs still within reach of the title.

There will be a break in the Women's Super League with FA League Cup and FA Cup fixtures upcoming during the next six days; City's first game will be in the Conti Cup against Tottenham, and then after, the FA Cup duties arrive, which will be against Arsenal.

When they do return to the WSL, it will be quite the matchup as Manchester City will face current League leaders Chelsea and will definitely want to defeat their title rivals and match their points accumulated, which would put the two clubs on the same amount of points on first.

But if they do fail to get something from that make, it will make a bigger gap between them, not impossible to turn around, but ideally, the first scenario would be much preferred by City.

But for now, the attention of the squad will be focused on the Conti Cup game against Spurs, which takes place this Wednesday.

Man City will be considered favorites ahead of this match, especially after the 2-0 scoreline they achieved when they played Spurs just a week ago, and they are currently on an eight-game -winning streak.

In the Conti Cup, they have only lost one game, which came against Leicester on penalties after a 2-2 draw, but besides that result, all the other three games ended in their favour, which placed them at the top of the group.
