Vitality Women’s FA Cup: Quick Fire Goals Hand City Win Over United In Manchester Derby

Written by Oluwaseun Oyediji

Manchester United Women threw away the tie against Manchester City Women in the Vitality FA Cup at Leigh Sports Village on Sunday.

More Details…

United are unbeaten in four derbies at Leigh, with City winning just one of their last six visits. While City are yet to lose a league meeting between these rivals, United has a solid record in the cup competitions and won here in the Continental Cup earlier in the season.

United took the lead in a good first half thanks to Katie Zelem and were in control, but Lauren Hemp’s equaliser after the break levelled things, before three awful bits of defending allowed Ellen White, Caroline Weir, and Khadija Shaw to send City through.


Manchester City with the result qualify for the quarter-final of the Vitality Women’s FA Cup.


The Gunners recorded a 0-4 win over English Women’s Championship side, Liverpool FC in the Vitality English Women’s FA Cup Round of 16 clash at Prenton Park.

Rhiannon Robert’s unfortunate own goal in the 19th minute set up a defeat for Liverpool.

Katie McCabe doubled the lead for Barclays English FA Women’s Super League (WSL) leaders in the 31st minute.

Australian forward, Caitlin Foord increased Arsenal’s lead to three in the 33rd minute.

She assisted Kim Little for the Gunners’ fourth goal in the 62nd minute.
