How to watch and follow Sunderland v United Women

Saturday 28 January 2023 14:30

Manchester United Women are in FA Cup action this weekend, as we head to the north-east to take on Sunderland on Sunday (29 January, 13:00 GMT).

Bidding to progress to the fifth round of the competition, the Reds have entered at this stage due to our status as a member of the top tier of the women's game.

Marc Skinner's side are at present top of the WSL, after an impressive start to the 2022/23 campaign that has seen us lose just one league game so far.

Entering into Sunday's tie following our most recent victory – a late 1-0 win over Reading last weekend – our attention now turns to cup football against the Black Cats.

Skinner will face some tricky decisions as we prepare to take on the Black Cats, with new loan signing Estelle Cascarino bidding to make her debut at the Eppleton Colliery Welfare Ground.

Forward Leah Galton could also feature, following a recent injury lay-off sustained during our training camp in Malta earlier this month.

Fellow new addition Lisa Naalsund will have to get up to speed quickly but might need some time, having not played since the completion of the 2022 Norwegian season.

Jayde Riviere suffered a long-term injury in the autumn and the defender isn't expected to feature again until mid-March.

We are delighted that Millie has penned a new deal, keeping her with the club until the end of the 2024/25 season.


Unbeaten in our last seven domestic outings in all competitions, the Reds were 1-0 winners against the Royals last weekend, after Rachel Williams's late winner fired us to the top of the WSL table.

Yet to concede a goal during 2023 thus far, goalkeeper Mary Earps celebrated her 50th clean sheet in the victory at the Madjeski Stadium, in yet another impressive display.

Top scorer Alessia Russo will bid to improve on her tally of five strikes so far this term, with Galton and Williams trailing just behind with four goals each to their names.

As for the hosts, Sunderland are currently eighth in the Women's Championship and were 3-1 winners over Skinner's former employers Birmingham City last time out.

Melanie Copeland's side beat Blackburn Rovers 1-0 to reach this stage earlier this month, with Neve Herron’s second-half strike the only difference between the two teams.
