We travel to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City in the Barclays Women’s Super League on Sunday, and Jonas Eidevall is expecting a tough test from the Foxes.
“The way that they have recruited and the way that they have played since January last year, they are competing in every game and are a really hard team to play,” he said in his pre-match press conference at London Colney on Friday afternoon.
“They obviously play with a really high pace, high intensity, pressing football and now the manager has had two transfer windows he has been able to bring in players who fit into that style and I think you can see that more and more as well.
“We can definitely expect a really competitive game. Leicester’s development and their investment in their squad absolutely shows the development and the growth of the league as well.”
Willie Kirk was recently named WSL Manager of the Month for October, following wins against Bristol City and Everton as well as a draw away to Manchester United.
“Absolutely I think Willie Kirk is a top manager who has done a really good job with Leicester,” Jonas added. “Both in the way he recruits players but also getting his group of players playing really well - he has played a massive part in making them a really competitive side.
“Every time we step onto the pitch we want to do our best to win and like I said before, the league table is not going to be decided after six rounds. We need to treat it on a game by game basis.”
