FA WSL Flashback: City 3-0 Everton Women

Ahead of Saturday's FA Women's Super League visit of Everton, we look back to a memorable home win over the Toffees, as City booked a spot the Women's Champions League on the final day of the season...

A Jill Scott brace, a Nikita Parris strike and a fine performance helped City to a comfortable victory at the Academy Stadium.

Deadlock was broken on the 21st minute courtesy of a 20-yard rocket from Scott. The Lioness didn’t have time to think and, with no other options, she drilled the ball into the the top corner beautifully to send a chorus of cheers and delight around the Academy Stadium

City doubled their lead through Parris in the 56th minute. Georgia Stanway cushioned Mel Lawley’s pinpoint cross ready for Parris to volley home from close range.

The crowd had barely settled before City’s third goal was in the net as Scott, named Player of the Match, secured her second of the game and eighth of the season.

The 31-year-old’s height proved an advantage as her outstretched leg reached the ball enough to push it past Kirstie Levell and into the goal in, what seemed like, slow motion.
