FA WSL: Manchester United boss Casey Stoney says derby pressure is on Manchester City

Casey Stoney wants her team whenever they take on Manchester City at the very first derby at top-flight women’s football, to perform without fear.
Stoney’s negative have been handed a short but daunting visit to City as they open up their FA Women’s Super League campaign after going up last year as champions.
The City of nick Cushing will be the overwhelming favourites to come according to Stoney, who expects Manchester United perform together with freedom and can take off the shackles.
„There’ll be some nerves, so it’s organic,“ she told Sky Sports News.
„It is an opening match of the WSL, they want to perform, they want to perform well, we want to perform well as a golf club.
„However, I see it as an chance to express themselves, go outside onto the grass, and also make mistakes because that’s the way you learn.
„Clearly they don’t need to make mistakes on the greatest stage but we want to motivate them to go out there and don’t have any anxiety and have a try.
„We won’t be expected to win this particular match, we shouldn’t be expected to win this game. We’ve only been promoted, Manchester City are a team, they’ve been winning decorations for the last four decades.
„The pressure and expectation ought to be about the opposition on Saturday.“
This weekend’s Manchester derby takes place using Tottenham’s trip to Chelsea a day later also being played in the home stadium of the men’s group, Stamford Bridge.
City and England goalkeeper Karen Bardsley overlooks the sport because of her ongoing recovery from a hamstring injury but acknowledges the derby that is season-opening claims to be a special occasion.
She explained:“It’s a fantastic opportunity and a chance to get this opportunity and the two clubs need to take that chance by the scruff of the neck and show people in England and round the world how much the women’s sport has come also how far it could go.
„It would be great to fill it I need people to develop an experience they adore [where they think] they play excellent soccer, really entertaining, it’s an environment that’s good to be part of.
„There’s a social aspect to it. We’re inclusive, not hoping to turn away, so if we can break a attendance record I would be so pleased. It’s likely to be a tasty fixture and I am actually excited about watching it.“
