Man City women should line up with this midfield tonight with Everton in mind
Nick Cushing’s side has gotten off to a great start in all competitions and tonight will see them face Lugano again in the second leg of the first Champions League round.
In the first leg of this round, Man City went 1-0 down only to come on top and end up winning 7-1. Georgia Stanway, Pauline Bremer and Caroline Weir were a few of the goal scorers from the game.
A few things to consider in the midfield that, although the impressive women’s side will go out with the intentions of winning again tonight, they face Everton this weekend in the Women’s Super League. Both teams are joint at the top which will see them both looking for a win to take an early lead in the table. Georgia Stanway is also injured at the minute so won’t be in the line-up.
Laura Coombs, Tyler Toland, Caroline Weir and Keira Walsh should all start in midfield, as they went out against Leicester at the weekend and managed to keep up standards in a 5-0 win. This will give players like Jill Scott and Emma Bissell a chance to rest on the bench but be brought on if needed.
One eye on the Women’s Super League
It will be interesting to see what side Nick Cushing puts out. However much he will want his side to do well in the Champions League, he will also have to consider the league game to come. Injuries will have him relying on others and then there’s players like Ellen White who have been out with injury but have recently come back into training.
If I had to guess, I think he will be telling his squad to go out with the intentions to win the game and defend well. However, they will be sure to keep one eye on the upcoming fixture at the weekend.
