Manchester City face Tottenham Hotspur for a place in the League Cup final tonight.

Having seen reigning champions Chelsea defeat Manchester United 3-1 last night to gain the first final place, the 4th and 5th placed teams in the WSL look to gain the honour of playing them in the showpiece event on Saturday 5th March.

  • Form Guide

Manchester City

City go into the game in impressive form, and with a new record goalscorer in their ranks.

23-year-old Georgia Stanway broke Nikita Parris' record of 62 goals for the club with a hat-trick on Saturday in an 8-0 victory against Nottingham Forest in the Women's Fa Cup.

That game also brought up City's 600th club goal in their history. Records aside, City are in fantastic form following a poor start to the season, with a 1-1 draw against WSL leaders Arsenal their only blemish in their last 8 games.

This run has included them scoring 34 goals, while only conceding 4 in all competitions. 


Sp​urs, on the other hand, are having a bit of a minor slump ​​​​​​with just the one win in their last four in all competitions.

Their shock loss at home in the fourth round of the Fa Cup last weekend, however, means that this is their only realistic chance of silverware this season which may just spur them on.

  • Team News

City's new signing Julie Blakstad is still awaiting a work permit and so won't be available for this game, whilst Ellen White and Steph Houghton are doubts for the game after picking up slight niggles.

Keira Walsh is expected to be fit having been out of their Fa Cup game against Forest with a niggle.

Spurs have no new injury concerns, but experienced centre-half Viktoria Schnaderbeck, brought in by Spurs in the January transfer window, may make her first start for the club.

  • Recent Meetings

These two last played back in September, when City's injury concerns were really at their peak. A late own goal from City goalkeeper Karima Benameur gave Spurs a 2-1 win, despite Lauren Hemp giving City an early lead.
