Manchester United Women host Manchester City Women on Saturday, in a clash of two WSL title contenders. The Reds — in only their second season in the top flight — are top of the league table after an impressive win last week over Arsenal, while their city rivals are in fifth, having had a rockier start to the WSL campaign.
Casey Stone’s side will be without new signing Alessia Russo, who sustained a hamstring injury, while the Blues will be without Lauren Hemp. There will be extra attention on this one (only the fourth ever Manchester derby for the women’s sides) as both Manchester clubs signed a pair of USWNT stars this past transfer window. Tobin Heath and Christen Press signed with United for this season, while Sam Mewis and Rose Lavelle signed with City. All four players are unlikely to start, but all four will almost definitely be involved at some point.
