#Conti Cup midweek matches bring another Merseyside derby

The latest round of FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup group games are on Wednesday 5th December and feature a second Merseyside derby in the space of 80 hours.

Group 1 North

Bristol City v Aston Villa (Stoke Gifford Stadium, 7pm)
Manchester City v Sheffield United (Academy Stadium, 7pm)
Leicester City WFC v Birmingham City (Quorn FC, 7.45pm)

Group 2 North

Liverpool v Everton (Tranmere Rovers FC, 7pm)
Manchester United v Durham (Leigh Sports Village, 7pm)

Group 1 South

Chelsea v Yeovil Town (Kingsmeadow Stadium, 7.30pm)
Brighton & Hove Albion v Crystal Palace (Crawley Town FC, 7.45pm)
London Bees v Tottenham Hotspur (Barnet FC, 8pm)

Group 2 South

Millwall Lionesses v Lewes (Dartford FC, 7.30pm)
Arsenal v Charlton Athletic (Boreham Wood FC, 7.45pm)

Manchester City lead the Group 1 North table ahead of hosting Sheffield United, second-placed Birmingham are at Leicester and Bristol City meet Aston Villa with both sides having some work to do to catch the top two.

After Willie Kirk began his reign as Everton boss with victory over Liverpool in the FAWSL on Sunday, the local rivals clash again but this time at the Reds’ Prenton Park ground. The Toffees could takeover from Reading at the top of Group 2 North should they win again but a victory for Manchester United or Durham could instead see either of them as new leaders.

Chelsea are in good form in the Conti Cup and may well stretch their lead in Group 1 South in a home game with Yeovil, as second-placed Spurs have to bounce back from a big beating on Sunday when visiting London Bees. Rivals Brighton and Crystal Palace meet with the latter one point better off than their top flight hosts.

Arsenal will go clear in Group 2 South with just a draw against Charlton, Millwall have still to get off the mark and take on Lewes.
