Gallery: A share of the points in the Manchester derby

Check out the best shots from the Etihad Stadium, as a battling second half performance saw Manchester City secure a point against Manchester United, as the Manchester derby ended in a 1-1 draw in the Women’s Super League

It was anybody’s game in the opening minutes of the game, with both sides searching for the breakthrough in the Manchester derby.

But it was the visitors who would take the lead, as Galton picked up the ball on the left side of the pitch from Tone, cut inside and then despatched a shot past Roebuck into the left side of the net.

City heeded Gareth Taylor’s instructions at half time to push for the equaliser, as we pushed forward looking to find a way past Mary Earp’s.

And that goal came, 12 minutes into the second half, as Chloe Kelly, the architect, as the drives down the right flank before firing in a brilliant cross.

It evades the United defence and Coombs is there to stoop and head home from close range.

Both teams pushed hard towards the end to find the winning goal that would see either team secure bragging rights in the city.

But that wasn’t to be, as the referee blew her whistle on what was a tasty encounter at the Etihad.
