Manchester City boss says his players have the ‘bit between their teeth’ in their battle for the WSL title | The Sun

Gareth Taylor says Manchester City are in a good position to gain ground on Chelsea and Man United in the title race.

Defeat of Tottenham in Taylor’s 100th match at the Citizens’ helm today will see his side go second behind United.

Taylor said: "We see this game as a big game, but we've got nine big games left.

"I think what we have now is belief and the bit between our teeth, that it's in our hands, that's the major thing.

"That's not to say it's going to be a walk in the park, for sure. 

"It's so difficult, levels are so high, margins are so tight. But we are in a very good position to make a step forward.”

Today’s match could also see Esme Morgan make her return from injury to City’s backline.

Taylor said: "We’ve got Esme back into the frame. Demi Stokes is a little further down the line."

Meanwhile Tottenham have welcomed Kit Graham’s return to action with Bethany England’s availability in doubt.

The Spurs forward could be set to start against City following her extra time substitute appearance in the team’s FA Cup tie loss to Reading.

Graham, who came on in the 103rd minute of the fifth round clash, has battled back to full fitness from a knee injury.

Skinner said:  "She’s such a great character to have in and around the team.

"Since she’s been back in training she elevates the intensity of what we do.

"We’ve had so many issues with long-term injuries and squad availability.

"It’s definitely a positive for the whole team and for her."

Tottenham, who have struggled with injuries, are chasing their first win in the WSL this year.
