The 2021-22 FA Women’s Continental Tyres League Cup kicks off this midweek with two evenings of group stage games.
There’s two all top-flight ties as Manchester City entertain Everton and Birmingham welcome Brighton to St Andrews, two capital clashes as Karen Hills returns to Tottenham with her Charlton side and London City Lionesses take on West Ham, not forgetting a big night for Durham as they play host to Manchester United – a tie which is close to sold out.
