PREVIEW: Manchester United v Tottenham Hotspur

Manchester United will be hoping to keep the pressure on third-placed side Arsenal in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League table when they take on Tottenham Hotspur at The Leigh Sports Village on Sunday.

The Red Devils are level on points with The Gunners but have played a game more and have an inferior goal difference.

Manchester United manager Casey Stoney is set to welcome attacking players Leah Galton and Alessia Russo back to the squad with the pair having returned to fitness. The Red Devils have no new injury concerns to contend with following last weekend’s 6-0 Vitality Women’s FA Cup victory at Burnley.

Midfielder Hayley Ladd and attackers Tobin Heath and Ivana Fuso will not play again this season with the trio being sidelined with long term injuries.

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Rehanne Skinner is unable to call upon on-loan Manchester United centre-back Abbie McManus with the player not permitted to face her parent club. New Zealand international defender Ria Percival is also unavailable through injury, although she could return before the end of the season.

Manchester United’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against Tottenham Hotspur is scheduled to kick-off at 12.30pm on Sunday and will be available for fans to watch live via the BBC Red Button and on the FA Player.
