Manchester City will be hoping to take the FA Women’s Super League title race back into their own hands when they take on Chelsea at The Academy Stadium on Sunday.
Alan Mahon’s side currently lead The Blues by just one point at the top of the FA Women’s Super League table but Chelsea have the luxury of a game in hand.
Manchester City go into Sunday’s fixture on the back of a record-breaking 10-0 victory over fourth tier side Ipswich Town in the Women’s FA Cup fifth round last weekend. That game saw no less than three different players net hat-tricks.
The home side have won every domestic fixture staged at The Academy Stadium in the last 12 months, a sequence of 16 consecutive victories dating back to a 2-2 draw with Chelsea last February.
Chelsea manager Emma Hayes is likely to recall Australian international Sam Kerr to the starting XI after she was named a substitute for Monday’s 1-0 Women’s FA Cup victory over Liverpool at Kingsmeadow. The Blues are currently enjoying a nine-match winning streak while they have not conceded a single goal in their last five games.
The match is scheduled to kick-off at 2pm with tickets available both in advance and on the day.
