The Women’s Super League continues this weekend with a highly anticipated Manchester derby clash between Manchester United Women and Manchester City Women on Sunday. The match is set to take place at the Leigh Sports Village stadium, with both teams fighting for their respective aims towards the end of the season.

Manchester United Women currently sit in second place on the Women’s Super League table, with 44 points from their 20 games played. They will look to close the two-point gap between them and league leaders Chelsea Women, with a clash between Arsenal Women and the Blues taking place on the same day.

Manchester City Women, meanwhile, sit in fourth place with 38 points and are looking to secure their place in the top three to qualify for next season’s UEFA Women’s Champions League. They are three points behind third-placed Arsenal Women but have a better goal difference than their opposition.

Manchester United Women head into the derby fixture on the back of a disappointing 1-0 loss to Chelsea Women in the FA Cup final. Despite losing the final, the Red Devils have been in impressive form, having won their last four home league games by a combined scoreline of 13-1. Manchester United’s striker, Alessia Russo, will be looking to add to her goal tally and help her team to a victory over their local rivals.

Manchester City Women, on the other hand, will be hoping to take advantage of any slip-ups by their competitors and will be targeting maximum points in their final two games to have the best chance of qualifying for the Champions League. They will look to bounce back from their recent 2-1 loss to Liverpool Women, which has put their qualification hopes in jeopardy.

The derby game promises to be an exciting and competitive match between two teams with different objectives. Historically, Manchester City Women have performed well in the Manchester derby, having won the last three competitive matches. However, Manchester United Women are in top form, and with the home support advantage, they will look to end their neighbours’ unbeaten streak in the derby.

In conclusion, the upcoming Manchester derby between Manchester United Women and Manchester City Women is set to be an exciting and crucial match in the final stages of the Women’s Super League. It will be interesting to see how both teams approach the game and whether Manchester United Women can take the title race to the final day of the season, or if Manchester City Women can keep their Champions League hopes alive with a vital victory. Regardless of the result, this fixture is bound to be a special occasion for both sets of fans and players alike.
