Despite a tough game at Everton, Manchester City got their fifth win in a row in the WSL, thanks to a late winner from Scott Shaw. The score was not enough to prevent United from picking up a point, but it could prove vital in the race for the title.
Chelsea’s win at Everton gives Man City fifth WSL victory in a row
Having lost a solitary game, Manchester City had won five straight and were on a record-breaking run. It looked like they were heading for their first defeat of the season, but the Manchester derby proved that they are still a force to be reckoned with.
Having suffered two defeats in three games, Everton were looking to bounce back after the dominance of City. It looked like the game was over when Demi Stokes hit Sophie Ingle’s hand, but it was the defending champions who took the lead.
Everton were dominated by the City defence in the first half, but Chelsea had chances to break the deadlock. Chelsea’s supercomputer was in full flow, sensing that momentum was building at St. James’ Park.
In the first half, Chelsea were threatening on the left, but their first goal came after a good passage of play from Pernille Harder. The Danish midfielder’s header was sent past Courtney Brosnan. The Everton keeper kept his place, but it was Chelsea who had the last word.
Manchester United’s 100 per cent record
Despite the win, Manchester City remain in fourth place in the WSL table. They are just three points behind Chelsea and Arsenal. However, they can catch Chelsea and Arsenal on the last weekend of the season if they win both matches.
Manchester City beat Everton 2-1 in a hard-fought match at Walton Hall Park. The hosts were desperate to avoid a third consecutive home defeat. They came close in the opening minutes. They then pressed for an equaliser. However, Leila Shaw set up Julie Blakstad for the opening goal.
