Manchester City host Everton in the quarter finals of the Women's FA Cup on Sunday, which also happens to be a replay of the competition's 2020 final.

City ran out extra-time winners on that occasion as Gareth Taylor lifted his first piece of silverware in senior management.

Everton have their own proud history in the FA Cup, having won the competition in 2010. The Toffees will be hopeful of another strong cup run with little left to play for in the league this season.

Man City team news

Manchester City have no fresh injury concerns following Wednesday's WSL victory over Reading.

Steph Houghton and Esme Morgan are long-term absentees, alongside Chloe Kelly who continues to step up her recovery from her ACL injury as she edges closer to a return. Vicky Losada remains out, with the club targeting an April return for the Spanish midfielder.

Ruby Mace returned to the squad on Wednesday following a spell on the sidelines and could come into the starting XI should Taylor shuffle his pack once more ahead of a busy period of fixtures.


Everton team news

Everton also have no fresh injury concerns following their midweek loss to Chelsea.

Anna Anvegard remains unavailable after suffering a concussion, with boss Chris Roberts unable to give a time scale on the forward's return given the nature of the injury.

Sandy MacIver, Izzy Christiansen, Toni Duggan, Claire Emslie and Poppy Pattinson could all be in line to feature against their former club.


Man City vs Everton predicted lineups

Man City: Roebuck; Bronze, Greenwood, Mace, Stokes; Walsh, Coombs, Weir; Beckie, Shaw, Park

Everton: MacIver, Turner, Finnigan, George, Pattinson; Galli, Christiansen, Dali; Bennison, Duggan, Emslie


Man City vs Everton score prediction

After injuries derailed the start of their season, City have really come into their own in the second half of the campaign, and have looked back to their fluid best during recent victories over Manchester United, Tottenham and Reading.

City and Everton meet again next Wednesday in the WSL, with the league fixture arguably more important for City given they are still in the hunt for Champions League football. The FA Cup is the bigger one for Everton with their WSL status effectively secured.

City may well rotate their squad, while Everton will likely be at close to full strength - but the hosts will still be expected to progress.

Prediction: Man City 2-0 Everton
