Manchester United Women Women's Super League form: WWLW

Marc Skinner's side bounced back after their heavy defeat against reigning champions Chelsea with a positive 2-0 win at St Andrew's against Birmingham City. That encounter was a game of few chances, with only three shots on target being recorded between the two teams, but the visitors were efficient with their attacks, and Leah Galton along with Ella Toone scored the only two strikes Man United managed on target. Skinner's team have now won both of their away fixtures so far this season, placing them fourth and three points behind leaders Arsenal at this early stage in the season. Three points against rivals Manchester City on Saturday will give the United squad a huge boost in their quest to finish in the top three this campaign, and it could arguably be a good time to face Taylor's side.

 

Manchester City Women form (all competitions): WLLWL

Man City have struggled to secure victories during this period when they have been hit with many injuries to key players, but the 2-0 defeat against West Ham United last time out suggests that there may be deeper issues for Taylor. he Hammers deserve credit for their performance and they deserved the three points last weekend, but City were still expected to have enough quality to win that game and they did have their chances in front of goal. Man City dominated the ball and registered 20 shots but failed to get on the scoresheet for a second consecutive WSL game, meaning that their hopes of being crowned league champions in May are already fading away. Last Sunday's game against West Ham was viewed as a must-win outing for Taylor's team, and dropping nine points behind Arsenal in the table makes Saturday's derby an even more important day for Man City. The blue half of Manchester did come out triumphant the last time these two teams met in February, claiming an emphatic 3-0 win over Casey Stoney's side, but the game this time around is expected to follow a very different storyline with a lot of changes to each team since then.

 

Betting Verdict:

Derby day is all about passion and form tends not to be followed which is why, despite Manchester City's recent run of results and squad injuries, the visitors should not be written off. Man United are most probably favourites for this game and they are likely to be able to collect three points this weekend, but the game could be a cagey and closely-fought encounter.
