Manchester City team news

It's touch and go as to whether Steph Houghton and Ellen White will be available, with the England duo missing out against Nottingham Forest on Sunday with slight injuries.

Keira Walsh was also absent for City's comprehensive FA Cup victory with a niggle, but is fit to start once more.

Alanna Kennedy and Hayley Raso have both returned from the Asia Cup, but will need to be assessed before being thrown back into the first team fold.

New signing Julie Blakstad is still awaiting for a work permit before she can make her City debut - but should this arrive in time for Thursday evening's clash, the midfielder could feature.


Tottenham team news

South Korean midfielder Cho So-hyun and Chinese midfielder Tang Jiali remain unavailable for Tottenham due to their involvement at the Asia Cup, but Australia international Kyah Simon has returned from the tournament and could be in contention for selection.

Manchester City vs Tottenham score prediction

Tottenham came out on top when the two sides met in the WSL in September, although a two-handed handball was missed in the buildup to Spurs' winner. Rehanne Skinner's side have come on leaps and bounds this season, with their ability to get results off the league's elite a notable consequence of the improvements made.

However, with Manchester City returning to near full strength following the injury troubles that derailed their first half of the campaign and looking back to their fluid best, they should have too much quality for Spurs.

Score prediction: Manchester City 3-1 Tottenham
