Man City women have been doing great in all competitions so far this season. Nick Cushing desperately wants his side to win the Champions League.
In order to do that, they’ll have to get past Atlético Madrid this week. The Football Manc Cave are looking at two players who should be rested.
Even though Cushing will put out a team aiming to win the Champions League clash, he’s still got to consider the league.
Man City are currently top of the Women’s Super League and are the ones to beat. However, getting past Atlético Madrid this week will take priority.
Here are two players who may benefit from being rested during this clash. Whether it be starting them on the bench or leaving them to rest ready for the weekend.
Bremer has had a great season so far. However, she picked up a slight injury before last weekends game.
Rather than play her and make it worse, Cushing should keep her rested until the weekend when Man City play Man United again.
Cushing has said that he will make a decision on her closer to the game. If she doesn’t get a start then, she will be featured against Man United.
She’s been a stand out performer for Man City and England. However, she is another player who picked up an injury earlier on in the season.
She has been seen back in training with the blues but that doesn’t mean she should be started.
Cushing should keep her out of action and assess whether she is up to playing on Sunday. The last thing he needs is any of his players coming back before they’re ready.
