The Citizens go into the game in second place in the table. They also won 1-3 when these two met in the league in November. However, they have been knocked out of both cup competitions by Chelsea and Spurs recently, so they are not infallible. 

Despite making it to the FA Cup semi-final, their neighbours have had a more inconsistent season. Pressure is growing on manager Mark Skinner and they really need to take all three points to keep up their push for a Champions League place.

Red Devils goalkeeper Mary Earps is sure to be under pressure, not least because Man City have a goal machine in Bunny Shaw. She has netted 16 times already this season. Earps’s Lioness teammate Lauren Hemp is also a threat. Ella Toone and Nikita Parros pose some danger to the hosts.

Here's how they line up:

Man Utd: Earps; Riviere, Le Tissier, Turner, Blundell; Zelem, Naalsund; Garcia, Toone, Geyse; Parris

Man City: Keating; Casparij, Aleixandri, Greenwood, Ouahabi; Park Hasegawa, Coombs; Fowler, Shaw, Hemp
