Team news coming up shortly – meanwhile, a spot of pre-match reading:
Can anyone stop Manchester City’s winning machine rumbling forwards? Before this afternoon’s meeting with Everton they’ve won six in a row in all competitions and are on a victorious eight-match winning run in the WSL. In their previous three matches – including an impressive 3-0 Champions League win against Fiorentina in midweek – they’ve racked up 10 goals and three clean sheets. Win today, and they can hit the top of the virtual WSL table, at least, with the leaders Chelsea (who are two points ahead, 38 to City’s 36) kicking off at 3pm away to West Ham.
The Champions League qualification-chasing visitors Everton are not on a bad run themselves, beating Tottenham away in a five-goal thriller last time out, and currently on an unbeaten three-match which spanned the month of February. It promises to be a significant afternoon as the race for the WSL title heats up: kick-off is at 2pm and team news, pre-match reading and more is coming up.
