Manchester City head coach Gareth Taylor says that his side can still improve despite their recent good form.

The Cityzens have enjoyed an 11-match winning run while they remain serious contenders for all three domestic trophies.

Manchester City’s latest opponents are Everton at The Joie Stadium tomorrow. Head coach Taylor believes that The Blue Girls can trouble his side but says that Manchester City must focus on themselves. He also insists that there’s more to come from his side.

“They’ve had some success recently against West Ham,” Taylor said when discussing Everton’s form in the pre-match press conference. “Obviously, the Leicester game didn’t go their way but I think they’re becoming more familiar now with what Brian [Sørensen] is trying to do. He’s lost a few players and brought a few in and it takes time to get your message across.

“What we are seeing at the moment is a team that are capable of causing problems and we need to be aware of that. We made the players aware of it and we will continue to do that in the lead up to the game.

“It’s about what we do. We are in a good vein of form but we need to perform well tomorrow. We need to look after the ball really well, make sure that we make them defend in every opportunity that we get and we need to be really assertive without the ball.

“We’ve seen some good signs recently; we were delighted with three wins and three clean sheets in different competitions from the London games but we still know that there’s massive room for improvement. The players are really honest in that, they know that there are a lot of things that we can really improve on.”

Just goals scored separates Manchester City from Barclays Women’s Super League leaders Chelsea and Taylor went on to highlight the tight margins at the business end of the campaign.

He said “It’s the business end of the season, each period that we go into seems to become more important than the last one.

“There are really tight margins in this league and we know that the title race usually goes to the final game of the season. Also, when you are in the cup competitions, there is no margin for error.

“The players know that, they are completely aware of it. We don’t want to underestimate any team that we come up against and we certainly won’t do that. We will try to give the best version of ourselves and we look forward to this next period.”
