West Ham vs Man City – WSL: TV channel, live stream, team news & prediction

Manchester City can move level on points with Manchester United in the WSL’s final Champions League spot with victory over West Ham on Saturday, with their rivals not playing until Sunday.

City are in a rich vein of form, having put their early season injury woes far behind them to win their last seven games in all competitions.

However, they face a West Ham side who have proved to be a stubborn test this season, having come out on top when the two sides met in October, and actually recently doing City a favour by taking points off United in that Champions League race.

When is kick off? Saturday 2 April, 11:30 (BST)
Where is the match being played? Chigwell Construction Stadium
TV channel/live stream? Sky Sports Premier League (UK), FA Player (international)
Highlights? Sky Sports Football YouTube, FA Player, BBC Sport website
Referee? Elizabeth Simms

West Ham are at close to full strength going into Saturday’s fixture, with long-term absentee Maisy Barker the only player unavailable.

Emma Snerle and Claudia Walker are both back in contention for selection following spells out with Covid-19.

Manchester City continue to be without Steph Houghton and Esme Morgan, with Gareth Taylor admitting it was unlikely that either player would feature before the end of the season.

Vicky Losada will also miss out through injury but is expected to return after the international break. Chloe Kelly should be available for minutes from the bench for the first time this season following 11 months out with an ACL injury.

West Ham: Arnold; Longhurst, Fisk, Flaherty, Cissoko, Svitkova; Stringer, Brynjarsdottir, Hasegawa; Leon, Walker

Man City: Roebuck; Bronze, Greenwood, Kennedy, Stokes; Walsh, Weir, Stanway; Park, White, Hemp

Manchester City have really found their groove after their injury plagued opening to the season and currently look unstoppable. Gareth Taylor’s side haven’t conceded in the WSL since 6 February and have lost just one of their last 17 games in all competitions.

Olli Harder has instilled a real steeliness in West Ham this season, and the Hammers would move up to sixth with a win. But with the form that City find themselves in, a victory for the visitors looks the most likely outcome.

Prediction: West Ham 0-3 Man City
