Captain Alex Greenwood said Manchester City “don’t get talked about as much as other teams” in the Women’s Super League title race.

Chelsea are top of the table, three points clear of second-placed City and six above Arsenal in third.

City face Emma Hayes’ side on Friday and can leapfrog the leaders if they win by three goals or more.

“We aren’t mentioned as much as other teams and that’s fine by us,” Greenwood told BBC Sport.

“We’ll keep doing what we do, we’ll keep cracking on and looking after ourselves and taking care of business as we can. We’ve got a lot of confidence in the team right now and just need to keep with this momentum.”

Gareth Taylor’s side are unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions and head into Friday’s game on the back of a 1-0 win over Arsenal in the FA Cup.

That result means they remain in the hunt for three trophies this season and Greenwood wants her side to arrive at Kindsmeadow full of belief.

“It’s massive. It’s a huge game, it’s the difference between top and being six points behind,” she said. “To try and chase Chelsea with six points [gap] is difficult. We know what they’re capable of.

“They are incredible, what they have done season after season, I have so much respect for them and admiration for how they go about their business.

“But on Friday it’s focusing on ourselves. We should go into the game with so much confidence after the last couple of games and how we’ve been playing recently and that’s what we’ll do.”
