Match Highlights

Continental Cup highlights: City 5-1 Everton

Manchester City began our Continental Cup campaign in style with a deserved 5-1 win over Everton at the Academy Stadium.

A sumptuous solo effort from Caroline Weir saw Gareth Taylor’s side take the lead before the ten-minute mark, but the visitors hit back almost instantly through Grace Clinton.

Undeterred, Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw rose highest before the break to head City into a deserved half-time lead, before Lauren Hemp added number three as the game approached the 75-minute mark.


Substitute Jess Park made it four from close-range after Ellen White stole back possession in the Everton half late on, before the England striker got herself on the scoresheet with a near-post header to round off the scoring.

The result was just rewards for City, whose gutsy display will leave Gareth Taylor with plenty to smile about leading into the international break.
