City and Arsenal Women lock horns in the Continental Cup Final for the third time on Saturday...

Both sides registered a win apiece in the 2014 and 2018 clashes at Adams Park, Wycombe, with the 2019 Final set to take place at Bramall Lane, Sheffield at 12:15pm.

The Blues' victory in our debut season since relaunch heralded an historic achievement - our first piece of major silverware - in a shock triumph over a much-fancied Gunners side.

With holders Arsenal - the most successful Club in English women's football - having secured three League Cups from three, City headed into the encounter very much as underdogs.

A side mixed with youth and experience - a blend of the original City Ladies squad and England internationals - was selected for the Blues' first major Cup Final, and they certainly stood up to the task.

Karen Bardsley produced an impressive display to preserve our clean sheet and as a result, Nick Cushing's side grew in confidence as the game wore on.

Having soaked up first-half pressure, the Blues dominated the second period. Captain Steph Houghton went close twice with two trademark free-kicks, but the decisive moment would arrive courtesy of Izzy Christiansen, who rose to head home Krystle Johnston's pinpoint delivery with just 18 minutes left on the clock.

City survived a late onslaught to upset the odds and Houghton lifted the trophy she had once clinched with the Gunners to make City history.
