PREVIEW: Manchester United v Everton

Manchester United and Everton will be hoping to put a positive end to their respective league seasons when the pair meet at The Leigh Sports Village on Sunday.

The hosts are set for a fourth-place finish in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League table while Everton will end the campaign in fifth, a marked improvement from previous years.

Manchester United boss Casey Stoney has no new injury concerns to contend with ahead of her side’s latest fixture. Long term absentees Alessia Russo, Tobin Heath, Ivana Fuso and Hayley Ladd remain sidelined but Leah Galton is pushing for a start following her successful recent return from injury. Stoney could opt to make some minor changes to her side with fourth place already having been secured.

Everton make the short trip to Leigh without defender Danielle Turner who is sidelined until next season after undergoing surgery. Other than Turner’s absence, The Blue Girls are not thought to have any injury concerns as they look to return to winning ways following last weekend’s 2-1 home defeat to Arsenal.

The Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture between Manchester United and Everton is scheduled to kick-off at 2.30pm on Sunday afternoon and will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player.
