Goals from Lucy Bronze, Lauren Hemp and a Caroline Weir stunner helped Manchester City humble Manchester United 3-0 in what could be a hugely significant result in the Women’s Super League title race.
Three points for either side would have kept them within touching distance of league leaders Chelsea, and it was Bronze who struck gold first, volleying home through a crowd of bodies just before the 25-minute mark.
United pushed Gareth Taylor’s side all the way, with Christen Press in particular going close, but Hemp added a second on the rebound, City’s 500th goal, with 20 minutes to go.
And Weir killed the game off with a goal of the season contender ten minutes later, chipping Mary Earps from outside the box to seal the points and local bragging rights in spectacular fashion.
