PREVIEW: Manchester City v Tottenham Hotspur

Manchester City will hope to make it two wins out of two in this season’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League when Tottenham Hotspur are the visitors to The Academy Stadium this evening.

Gareth Taylor’s side made an excellent start to the new league campaign by recording a 4-0 victory at Everton last weekend. Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur also made a winning start, beating Birmingham City 1-0 to record their first-ever victory at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Manchester City continue to be without a number of players for their latest league encounter. Goalkeeper Ellie Roebuck, defender Lucy Bronze, midfielder Keira Walsh and forward Chloe Kelly all remain sidelined while veteran Karen Bardsley is also struggling for fitness.

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Rehanne Skinner is not thought to have any new injury concerns to contend with and she could opt to keep faith with the same starting XI which saw off Birmingham City last weekend. The Lilywhites have a poor record against teams in the top three positions in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League and Spurs will be keen to create new history this season.

The Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur kicks-off at 6.45pm and will be broadcast live on Sky Sports Football.
