'We can't wait to show what we've got' - Man Utd ready to unleash new-look team on WSL


Casey Stoney Manchester United 2020-21

Millie Turner has warned Manchester United’s rivals they are excited to unleash their new-look team on the Women’s Super League after new signings have helped take them up another level.

Having being forced to isolate due to Covid-19 restrictions and with a number of the squad on international duty Heath and Press have only been training with their new teammates for a week but there’s already excitement over what they can bring.

“They Press and Heathare very very good players it’s something different that this league’s not really had before and this team haven’t had before,” Turner said. “For us to be able to learn off them is unbelievable.

"I think we’re really developing from having these two here. For them to come into the group is great. All of our signings have been unbelievable they’ve settled in so well, we have a very good team mentality here at United. Can’t wait to show what we’ve got at the weekend.”

But, fans might have to wait a little longer to see the pair in the starting XI with Stoney saying they’re going to take longer to get up to speed after having so long without a game.

“They’re going to take a little bit longer to get up to speed because they’ve not played for such a long time, you can train on your own but you can’t replicate the game or playing so we have to be patient and build them up right and build them up slowly so they can impact when required,” Stoney said.

Pushed on whether or not they would be starting on Sunday, Stoney replied: “I can’t let my cards away, but I’ll always do the right thing by the player.”

United are going to be without a number of players after a few picked up knocks. Captain Katie Zelem alsoisn’t available as she has only just returned to full training after testing positive for Covid-19.

“It’s very much a staged approach to returning. People think you get a positive test you quarantine for two weeks and you’re back out, It’s not. Probably puts you out for a month,” Stoney said about Zelem.

Whatever team Stoney fields she is hoping for a change in mentality from their last fixture against Birmingham three weeks ago. United had to come from a goal behind to win 5-2 and Stoney wants an improvement.

“I’ve got to be honest I don’t think our mentality was right going into that game. But, we came out winners, we had to change a few things, we did that and came around but it’s a lesson for us,” Stoney explained.

“You’re Man United you’ve got a target on your back all the time you’ve got to turn up prepared and make sure that you might have to be patient against teams and break them down but you can’t concede the goals we did.
