City brush aside United in WSL derby

Shaw makes history for Manchester City at the Etihad

Khadija Shaw became Manchester City’s record women’s goalscorer and Jess Park netted her first Women’s Super League goals for the club in a 3-1 derby victory over Manchester United.

City’s win in front of a crowd of 40,086 at the Etihad Stadium was their 11th in a row in the league and puts them three points ahead of Chelsea, who play West Ham on Sunday.

Park was the star of the show, the young midfielder in the right place for two neat finishes late in the first half, while seconds after the break Shaw scored her 68th goal in just 81 matches for the club, taking her clear of Georgia Stanway.

A Kerstin Casparij own goal in the 74th minute gave hope to United but this was another disappointing afternoon and they now sit 15 points behind their neighbours.
