Man Utd vs Man City: WSL preview and how to watch

In November 2019, more than 75,000 fans attended WSL and Championship fixtures during the inaugural ‘Women’s Football Weekend’, which included Tottenham v Arsenal at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and Liverpool v Everton at Anfield.

Saturday’s United-City contest is the opening game of this weekend’s behind-closed-doors version, in which six WSL fixtures will be staggered and can all be watched via television or streaming platforms live without clashes.

United head into the contest at Leigh Sports Village unbeaten in the league this season and on a five-match winning streak, with the latest victory for Casey Stoney’s side a 1-0 win over Arsenal last weekend.

The more mixed start for Gareth Taylor’s fifth-placed City – who won the FA Cup earlier this month – has included a loss and two draws in their six league games so far.

With kick-off set for 12:30pm GMT, here’s how you can follow all of the action…

TV channel: The match will be televised on BT Sport 1 with coverage starting at 12pm.

Live stream: BT Sport subscribers will be able to watch the match online via BT Sport’s YouTube channel for free, as well as the BT Sport App, the FA Player. MUTV subscribers can also stream the game online.

Highlights: All the goals and action will be shown on City’s CITY+ subscription channel within 24 hours.

WSL ‘one of the best in the world’

Man City defender Gemma Bonner told PA: “I think our league is probably becoming one of the best in the world,” Bonner said.

“You look at the players that have come, especially this season, the players we’ve got in the league – we probably have most of the top 10 players in the world.

“So for us, it is an exciting time, and I think more exciting with the games coming up, and the fact everyone is talking about the big derbies now.

“It’s an exciting time to be part of women’s football for sure.”
