PREVIEW: Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City

Manchester City will be hoping to continue to keep the pressure on Barclays FA Women’s Super League leaders Chelsea when they travel to The Hive to face Tottenham Hotspur this afternoon.

Manchester City are two points behind Chelsea with just four games left to go. Gareth Taylor’s side do still have The Blues to play on home soil at The Academy Stadium in the coming weeks.

Tottenham Hotspur go into this afternoon’s fixture against Manchester City without defender Ria Percival who will spend a few weeks on the sidelines with a calf injury. Full-back Ashleigh Neville continues to miss out through long term injury.

Manchester City head coach Gareth Taylor will again be without captain Steph Houghton for the trip to The Hive. She is joined on the sidelines by Demi Stokes, Gemma Bonner and Megan Campbell. Rose Lavelle has picked up a knock and won’t play while Taylor will check the condition of both Laura Coombs and Lauren Hemp prior to kick-off with the pair having been suffering from infections.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against Manchester City is scheduled to kick-off at 2pm and will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
