Manchester United Women manager Casey Stoney has agreed a contract extension.

Stoney, 37, who became head coach of the newly formed team last year, is set to stay in charge until at least 2022.

"I am extremely proud to be involved with Manchester United and I am honoured to be head coach of such an incredibly hard working and talented team," said Stoney.

"I would like to thank the club and the fantastic support they have given me since we started this journey and for the trust in what we are building here."

Stoney, who played for Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool, and was capped 130 times by England, guided United to glory in the FA Women's Championship, earning promotion to the Women's Super League.

"I must give thanks to my players and staff for the high standards we have set during the last months both on and off the pitch," added Stoney, who took charge in June 2018.

"We have a special group that epitomise the values of Manchester United, and there is a hugely exciting future ahead."

Graham Potter expecting "very difficult" Manchester United test

Brighton manager Graham Potter insists Manchester United are on the brink of recapturing their success ahead of his side's trip to Old Trafford.

United have won just three of their last 16 Premier League matches, and host the Seagulls following a 1-0 defeat at Bournemouth last weekend.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side responded with a 3-0 victory against Partizan Belgrade in the Europa League on Thursday evening, yet despite their poor domestic form, Potter is braced for a difficult encounter.

"Old Trafford is one of the best places in world football and with that comes a quality of opposition," said Potter.

"Apart from the Bournemouth game, they have been unlucky with their results, and they have had performances to suggest they could get more. They are a team in transition, with young and very talented players.

"Sometimes at the big clubs the expectancy is to win, and when they don't the panic can be bigger than it is at other clubs.

"But they are not far away from being successful. They have got international players, a good manager and we expect a very difficult game. We are going to go there, enjoy it, and accept the challenge."

Brighton head into Sunday's game two places and two points above United in eighth. They will equal their club Premier League record of three consecutive victories if they win at Old Trafford.

Potter however, will be without defender Adam Webster, who could be out until Christmas following an ankle injury.

The £20million summer signing from Bristol City damaged his ligaments in Brighton's win against Norwich last weekend.

"Adam has had a good week, and responded quite well to everything," added Potter. "I don't like to put a timescale on it but we are looking at Christmas.

"Sometimes with ligaments, you can be talking months. Hopefully it is weeks but we don't like to lose anybody."

Frank Lampard provides fresh update on Mason Mount's injury

The England international sustained the injury during the midweek Champions League clash against Ajax where the Blues registered a 4-4 draw from 4-1 down.

Mount was initially predicted to miss the weekend's London derby against Palace but Lampard has now confirmed that Mount will feature, provided he is able to pass the fitness test.

"With Mason, he's in the squad. We're giving him another 24 hours and we'll make a call on that one in the morning," he was quoted as saying by the club's official website.

Mount has been ever-present for the Blues in the Premier League and Champions League this season and has contributed four goals and an assist in all competitions.

His potential absence against the Eagles could offer Callum Hudson-Odoi with a starting role. Christian Pulisic may shift to the number 10 position for Hudson-Odoi to feature on the left wing.
