Continental Cup groups announced

UP  FOR THE CUP: The smiles say it all as City lift the Continental Cup

UP FOR THE CUP: The smiles say it all as City lift the Continental Cup

Cup holders Manchester City have been drawn in Group C for the 2019/20 Continental Cup campaign.

Nick Cushing’s side, who lifted last season’s trophy after a dramatic penalty shoot-out win over Arsenal, have been drawn alongside Birmingham City, Everton, Leicester City and Manchester United.

City have won the trophy twice with both finals coming against Arsenal. 

An Izzy Christiansen goal was enough to split the sides in 2014 as City won 1-0. Five years later, we needed penalties to defeat the Gunners at Bramall Lane after the game had finished goalless.

Summer signing Ellen White is no stranger to lifting the trophy, having done so in three consecutive years with former club Arsenal starting in 2011. White scored in two of those three finals and City will be hoping she proves a positive omen this coming season.
