Grace Fisk sustained a quad injury in our opening match against Brighton and Hove Albion and will be out of action for the clash against City.
Lisa Evans and Grace Garrad both missed last weekend's win over Leicester City, and are not expected to be available for this weekends match.

Further team news will be available to read when our line-up is named at 1pm on Sunday afternoon.
Manchester City haven’t enjoyed the greatest start to the 2021/22 campaign. The Citizens crashed out of the Champions League in the second round against Real Madrid, before losing at home in the WSL for the first time since April 2018 – as Tottenham came away 1-2 winners.
A 5-1 drumming by Arsenal followed, before Gareth Taylor’s side got back on track during midweek, dispatching Leicester City 6-0 in the FA Cup.
City and Taylor will be hoping that his team can return to form as quickly as possible, as they look to play catch-up in the League.
What they’re saying
Dagny Brynjarsdottir: “Maybe it’s my Icelandic mindset of being from a smaller country and being the underdog, but I think when you have a good game plan and work hard as a team then you have every chance of getting something.
“They haven’t started well and it’s a really good opportunity for us to show that we can compete with these types of teams that have been established in the league for a long time.”
Manchester City vs West Ham United gets underway at 2pm on Sunday 3 October.
You can watch the action from the Academy Stadium live on the FA Player website from 1:50pm.
