The first of two clashes against the Mersey reds takes place on Wednesday afternoon as Manchester City Women travel to Prenton Park to take on Liverpool in the Continental League Cup.

City’s men face their title rivals on Sunday, but today sees the women take centre stage as they look for the win that will give City a clear lead at the top of the group. Both teams won their opening fixtures, with Liverpool beating Manchester United while City overcame Everton.

The blues lifted the FA Women’s Cup last weekend by beating Everton 3-1 at Wembley and also beat them by the same score in the first League Cup fixture. Victory for either side will see the winner take a step closer to the quarter finals.

Liverpool have not won since beating United in the last round and manager Vicky Jepson may make some changes to the team that drew 2-2 with Lewes last weekend. City manager Gareth Taylor could rest some of his team who played in the FA Cup Final. Karen Bardsley could replace Ellie Roebuck in goal, while Wembley substitute heroes Georgia Stanway and Janine Beckie could start the match.

Kick off is at 2pm and is available to watch on FA Player.

Prediction: Even is Taylor rotates his squad, City should have too much for Liverpool. 0-2
