What a way to start Saturday with a WSL match! Let me know what you are up to today via Twitter or email, I’d love to hear from you.

Man City boss Gareth Taylor is aware of the challenge that his side will face today. He said: “Any team you face in the WSL is a tough challenge. In the games against them previously, whether in cup competition or in the league, they have been fairly tight. We’ve pretty much come out on the right side of the result every time apart from last season here. They’ll always provide a tough opposition for us.”

She told The Sun she wants the club to be playing in the Champions League which means the side need to finish in the top three. She said: “Ultimately that’s where we want to get to. It’s where a club the size of Tottenham should be. It’s the No 1 ambition. We want to be equal in the things that the men’s team are doing to promote the overall club. It’s really important our ambitions are really high. We’re working incredibly hard behind the scenes to get all of the pieces of the jigsaw together, including evolving the squads over transfer windows.”
