There were raised eyebrows in December when Gareth Taylor insisted that Manchester City could win the league after a 1-1 draw with Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium. “We want to win the league. We’re not just looking at the Champions League,” he said. “We’ve put ourselves in a position to win the league. If we win all of our games in the second half of the season, we win the league, it’s as simple as that.”
Six wins and a draw have followed, including this 2-0 defeat of the Women’s Super League title holders Chelsea, a team City had not beaten in 12 prior WSL games. Suddenly Taylor looks to be either a genius, extremely fortunate, or maybe a touch of both.
