Chelsea defender Maren Mjelde says they come into this one with a spring in their step. The past four meetings between the sides have ended with honours even and another cagey game is likely.
I feel like teams don’t really like coming to Kingsmeadow. It is of course one of the biggest games, playing against City is always a good challenge for us and it’s good to have them at home before Christmas. The week before Everton we had three games. We have been training well this week, we’ve saved the legs and had a great week of training.
It’s not easy to predict what is going to happen because it’s two teams that want to win to make the distance between the teams bigger. It’s really tight at the top of the league, we need to prepare well for them and they are going to be doing the same. I think it will be the team that is having the best day on Sunday that will win but I’m sure that we have enough qualities to win against them.
