Keira Walsh primed for ‘special’ Manchester derby

Manchester City midfielder Keira Walsh admits this weekend’s encounter with Manchester United will be a “special” occasion for her – but has stressed the focus must be on getting a job done.

A crowd of over 20,000 is expected at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday for the first-ever professional women’s Manchester derby as the 2019-20 Barclays FA Women’s Super League gets under way.

United, last term’s Championship title-winners, are making their WSL debut, having only formed as a professional outfit just over a year ago.
