Manchester City captain Steph Houghton is "confident" ahead of her side's FA Cup final encounter with West Ham United on Saturday. For a player who has won several league titles, domestic cups, a World Cup bronze medal, represented Team GB, become an England centurion, and won a whole host of personal accolades, the history of the FA Cup ensures City's 2017 success clearly ranks highly in her growing list of achievements.
Manchester City has the chance to wrap up a cup double when they face West Ham United in the FA Cup final this Saturday after beating Joe Montemurro's Gunners in the Continental Cup final back in February. Ahead of the final, City manager Nick Cushing said he was "proud" of his side's efforts this season despite missing out on a second FA Women's Super League title to Arsenal.
The Continental Cup final between Arsenal and Manchester City at Sheffield United’s Bramall Lane was far from a classic, with both sides somewhat failing to act out their game plan to full effect as a lack of meaningful chances or quality attacking play saw the final go to penalties for the first time.
