Match Highlights

Classic highlights: City 7-1 Brighton

A sensational seven against today's opponents Brighton and Hove Albion from 2019...

Almost three years ago to the day, City progressed through to the next round of the Continental Cup with a stunning 7-1 win over the Seagulls on a foggy night at the Academy Stadium.


A flurry of late goals saw City march into the semi-final of the competition.

Nikita Parris’ 50th goal for the Blues had opened the scoring in the fifth minute, before a brace from Lauren Hemp, plus goals from Caroline WeirClaire EmslieGeorgia Stanway and Janine Beckie capped off a thoroughly dominant display.

Defeating Chelsea 2-0 in the last four, Nick Cushing's side would face Arsenal in the Final at Sheffield United's Bramall Lane and triumph in dramatic fashion, edging the penalty shoot-out!

Ahead of this afternoon's trip to Brighton, take a look back at all of the goals from our 7-1 rout in the video above!
