Matchwinner Laia Alexandrai spoke of her pride at City’s performance after our FA Cup victory over Arsenal.

City secured a place in the quarter-finals with a 1-0 victory over the Gunners as we extended our winning streak to 10 matches.

Alexandrai scored the winner in the 74th minute when she smashed home a loose ball from close range for just her second goal for the Blues.

We remain in contention for three trophies after securing a place in the Continental Cup semi-finals in midweek as well as maintaining our Women’s Super League challenge.

And the Spanish defender said she is proud of her team-mates and excited by our performance at Meadow Park.


“I feel amazing, I’m very proud of the team, I think we were amazing,” Alexandrai said.

“We know how to defend and attack against these great teams. I’m very proud of us.

I’m very happy to help the team with this goal.

“These games are special and we are so happy. They are a great team and we fight with each other.

“A clean sheet is always important for us and our defending was top class.”
