A monumental achievement was made this weekend by Steph Houghton. The City star played her 200th match for Manchester City.

In peak performance and as leader of the team and defense, Steph has made this a season to remember as City mount title challenges in the FAWSL and UWCL.

Let’s see what she had to say after her historic achievement-

“I’d like to think so. (On playing her best football)

“I’m really happy with my performances. I pride myself on consistency and I feel as though I’m enjoying my football, and am in the best shape I’ve been in.

“With Gareth Taylor coming in, it’s a different way of playing and I’ve had to learn new stuff.

“I love playing at the moment. I’m learning every single day and I will always try to prove I’m one of the best centre-backs in England – if not Europe.

“I’ll keep my head down and work hard.”

“To play 200 games for this Club is a very special moment,” she declared. “It’s been a great seven years.

“I’m so proud to be a part of City and I feel like we’re leading the way. We’ve got the stadium, the facilities and even the standard of football.

“I can remember our first game against Liverpool on the astroturf! To see how much the game has come on – and the players we’ve attracted – is amazing.

“I’ve been part of the FA WSL for a long time and since then, everyone’s wanted to watch and play here.

“It’s been a great week for us.”

A real commendable player and person. This is why they are mounting challenges to the two biggest prizes in football. Hopefully, they can come off with one and even both of these titles this season.
