'Not again!' White 'equaliser' ruled out by VAR

England and Manchester City duo Karen Bardsley and Ellen White are both set for periods out through injury.

Goalkeeper Bardsley is expected to return before Christmas after an operation on her hamstring.

Striker White, who was injured on international duty with England, is set for a "short spell on the sidelines" after requiring knee surgery, say City.

Neither player travelled with the squad to North Carolina for last week's Women's International Champions Cup.
