Watch the comprehensive highlights as City secured passage to the quarter-finals of the Continental Cup with a 2-1 victory over Manchester United.

With the hosts, wearing the special PUMA Year of the Wood Dragon shirt, sitting two points and one place behind Marc Skinner’s side we knew a victory would put us in the knockout phase of the competition.

After a goalless first half, Gareth Taylor’s team found the precious breakthrough inside two minutes of the restart through Chloe Kelly’s clinical strike.


The opener gave us fresh impetus to find a second and it arrived soon after when Lauren Hemp tapped home from close range after industrious work down the right from Kelly then Kerstin Casparij.

However, our strong defensive line was breeched in second-half stoppage time when former City forward Nikita Parris bundled the ball into the net to give the visitors hope of an unlikely comeback.

But we held our nerve and leapfrogged our rivals to Group B’s summit and booking our place in Friday’s last eight draw.
